Amaechi tasks incoming Transport minister to deliver on rail project….

Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, said weekend he hoped the next minister in charge of the ministry would deliver ongoing projects in the railway sub-sector.

Amaechi, who spoke during a routine inspection of the ongoing Lagos – Ibadan standard gauge project being undertaken by the China Civil Engineering and Construction Company, CCECC, tasked the contractor to complete the civil works before the commencement of rain. Speaking against the backdrop of fears that many of the present crop of ministers might not make the next cabinet, Amaechi said should he fail to make the government, whoever would take his position in transport ministry would pay attention to the rail sector. He was, however, quick to add that his reappointment was the prerogative of the president who had the statutory powers to appoint ministers. He said: “If you watched me as governor, I was always restless at delivering on my responsibilities. I pray whoever would be the Minister for Transport should have the same passion and focus on that responsibility.
