APC Congratulates Buhari, Renames Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, Mr. Railway by sweetsandy4luv(f): 10:32pm On Oct 17
RAILWAY REVOLUTION: APC CONGRATULATES BUHARI, RENAMES CHIBUIKE ROTIMI AMAECHI MR. RAILWAY

All Progressives Congress {APC} Rivers State Chapter after due consideration of the massive rail-line projects nationwide under the present APC led Federal Government congratulates President Buhari and resolved to rename the APC Leader in the Niger Delta region, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi erstwhile Governor of Rivers State and the incumbent Minister of Transportation, MR RAILWAY of Nigeria.

The party in a statement signed and issued NEWSFLASHNGR.com for immediate circulation to the public by her State Chairman, Chief (Dr) Davies Ibiamu Ikanya in Port Harcourt on Tuesday reasoned that if the plan by the Minister of Transportation to link all the State capitals in Nigeria with rail lines is not a revolution, the party wants to be educated on what revolution is all about?

The party notes with joy that Amaechi have proved that he is not only a patriotic Nigerian but a leader whose leadership acumen is tested and well proven. For replicating most of his feats in Rivers State at the national level demonstrates that the future of our country is still very bright if true leaders who are committed to the greatness of our country are entrusted with leadership positions.

The following revolutionary projects suffices why Amaechi is truly Mr Railway of Nigeria –

*A contract agreement worth US$11.117bn for the construction of the Lagos-Calabar coastal railway line in Nigeria have been concluded and awarded to China Civil Engineering Construction Company (CCECC) to cover Port-Harcourt, Calabar, uyo and Aba and expected to be ready within 2 years.

Additionally, when completed, the proposed coastal railway line in Nigeria will link all sea ports. The project is also expected to create business hubs meant for commercial activities.

*Knowing Amaechi and his prudent management of public funds, this project initially awarded at a cost of US$11.917bn by the administration of Dr Goodluck Jonathan was negotiated down to US$11.117bn thereby saving millions of Naira for our country.

*Nigeria’s first high speed rails system of 186.5 km standard gauge track built by the China Railway Construction Corporation with double lines, which connects federal capital territory Abuja and northern commercial capital Kaduna had began commercial operations as President Muhammadu Buhari inaugurated operation on July 27, 2017.

*The Abuja-Kaduna route with nine stations and travelling capacity of 150km per hour with standard gauge rail lines covering a travelling distance of over 3,421 kilometres when completed would pass through Lagos, Oyo, Osun, Ogun, Benin, Abuja, Kogi, Onitsha and Sokoto, among other states.

*The Federal Government would soon take delivery of 17 new coaches and locomotives between now and December to boost rail transportation across the country of which 10 of the locomotives are meant for Abuja- Kaduna rail lines while the remaining seven would go to Itakpe – Warri rail project, which would be ready by June 2018.

*Plans are in top gear by the federal government to construct 10 new standard gauge rail lines across the country even as some new coaches had arrived the country.

*The 10 new standard gauge rail routes where feasibility studies were being carried out are as follow: The 300km Lagos-Sagamu-Ijebu Ode-Ore-Benin City East-West rail line; Lagos-Ibadan-Osogbo-Baro-Abuja high speed 615km line; Ajaokuta (Eganyin)-Obajana-Jakura-Baro-Siraj-Abuja rail; Additional line from Ajaokuta to Otukpo (533km); and the 520km Zaria-Kaura Namoda-Sokoto-Ileila-Birnin Koni in Niger Republic.

Others are the Benin-Agbor-Onitsha-Nnewi-Owerri-Aba rail with additional line from Onitsha-Enugu-Abakaliki, 500km; Eganyin (near Ajaokuta)-Lokoja-Abaji-Abuja, 280km; *Benin-Sapele-Warri-Yenagoa-Port Harcourt-Aba-Uyo-Calabar-Akampa-Ikom-Obudu Cattle Ranch coastal rail line, 673km; Port Harcourt-Aba-Umuahia-Enugu-Makurdi-Lafia-Kuru-Bauchi-Gombe-Biu-Maiduguri line; Ikom-Obudu-Ogoja-Katsina Ala-Wukari-Jalingo-Yola-Maiduguri line and Kano-Nguru-Gusau-Damaturu-Maiduguri-Gamborugala rail line.

*Other railway revolutionary projects include the proposed Kano – Maradi (Niger Republic) rail project. The construction and rehabilitation of the Itakpe-Ajaokuta-Warri standard gauge line project that is nearing completion.

*We may recall that the groundbreaking for the construction of Lagos-Ibadan standard gauge (double track) 2 x 180km rail line project, awarded to the China Civil Engineering Construction Company (CCECC), was done earlier this year and work had commenced on the site following the conclusion of its funding arrangement as arrangement are completed to complete the rehabilitation of the Western and Eastern lines, carry out addendum for sidings and loop lines on the Western line, procure and rehabilitate locomotives and rolling stock, as well as for the procurement of maintenance equipment.

The Federal Government is making efforts to source for about 16 billion dollars that is needed to actualise some of the Federal Government’s plans for the railway sector, especially the construction of two deep seaports in Bonny, Rivers State and Warri, Delta State, as well as the Port Harcourt Railway Industrial Park.

These concerted efforts to fix the railways will ease transportation of persons and goods across the country secure our major roads and save lives usually lost on most of our high ways.

With all these feats, which leader will not be happy with his performing Minister as President Buhari now sleeps and wakes up thinking about Railway system?

We commend and congratulate Mr. President for all his supports that enabled Mr. Railway to achieve this much in less than two years in office.

Truly, APC is performing, Rt Hon Rotimi Chibuike Amaechi is working, buhari is delivering Nigeria is changing,

Stop counting it as an achievement for PMB becuz alot of people workd hard for it to come through. Since he became the head of state he has done nothing other than to fight corruption inwhich we don't see results. Who does that?

Maybe if you stop hating to much you would remember he said he won't start new project until old ones are completed ...which I don't think is a bad thing ...

Just wait for 2019 and cast your one vote and let others cast theirs who ever wins must be supported

what i'm trying to say is that the country doesn't need completion of projects yet, i'm nt completely against it though... The country is at the brink of breaking a true leader listens to his people. If the country is restructed it would be easier for us to move forward becuz we would control our resources and when we do development(projects) won't be an issue

Let PDP restructure whenever they take power back. Stop making noise on NL about restructuring which you never mentioned when Jonathan was looting.

Hmmm...the country does not need completion of projects?
All the laudable projects started by OBJ and GEJ shouldn't be completed?
Those of us in opposition should not be 100% against the current administration. We have to be different from APC members.

We carry out road rehabilitation on the pages of newspapers. We fight corruption on the pages of newspapers. We tackle electricity crisis on the pages of newspapers. We carry out agricultural "revolutions" on the pages of newspapers(where's that bow-tie-wearing minister from the last administration?),yet the prices of certain food items remain high up there like the sun and we keep on spending billions importing tomato puree like no man's biz. Back to the matter,the train must not be derailed... We increase minimum wage on the pages of newspapers. We 'diversify' the economy on the pages of newspaper. Now,since May 29, 1999,we have been building railway lines ON THE PAGES OF NEWSPAPERS. FG,wherein lies the sincerity in all of these We are running a country on the pages of dailies and it ain't healthy. I want to see these things I read about in the dailies come to reality or is that too much to ask of my country's government?

Railway Ameachi and APC said never existed before they came to power? Are they now saying they've designed and built new railway lines within the two years of their administrations? Lies and propaganda can kill.
