The new Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, has pledged to ensure the completion of all ongoing rail projects across the country.
He made the pledge during his first day in office as minister, shortly after his inauguration by President Muhammadu Buhari in Abuja.
Amaechi called for cooperation from all parastatals and agencies of the ministry and the aviation sector.
His words: “We are interested in completing all ongoing rail projects around the country because we don’t want to disappoint Nigerians. It is important that we realise that we have a mandate to deliver on our promises and there is competition among the ministers to deliver and we don’t want to take last.”
