Buhari hails “Chief Amaechi” for Abuja railway completion




Protocol

I am delighted to be here today to commission the Abuja – Kaduna railway track and flag-off the Abuja-Kaduna train services (Passengers & Freight) on Nigeria’s first ever Standard Gauge Rail track to go into operation. This project was conceived by a previous administration, started by the last government and I am pleased to complete and commission it.

It is on record that between 1963 and early ‘80s, Nigeria had a vibrant rail system which conveyed agricultural and livestock and solid mineral resources to Lagos and Port Harcourt sea ports from where they are exported to other parts of the world. It is our vision and hope that those good old days will soon be back with us and indeed in a more prosperous way with the restoration of rail transport system which today’s occasion symbolises.

The construction of the Abuja-Kaduna Standard Gauge rail track commenced in 2009 and happily, sixteen years after, we are on the threshold of presenting to Nigerians a Standard Gauge Railway Train Service that will be safe, fast and reliable. The Abuja-Kaduna train service will provide the much needed alternative transport link between the Federal Capital Territory and Kaduna State, a corridor which has a huge potential for industries, agricultural activities and a growing labour force.

The Minister of Transportation, Chief Rotimi Amaechi and his team have put great efforts in the last few months to ensure the successful completion of this project under this Administration. Completion and Commissioning of this project is indeed in keeping with our vision of bringing about the desired change to make life easier for the generality of Nigerians through the development and provision of the necessary social and physical infrastructure.

In this regard, I wish to assure Nigerians that most State capitals and major commercial and production centres will be linked with railway system as a way of bringing about rapid socio-economic development and improving the quality of life of the Nigerians and promoting social & regional integration.

Furthermore, I wish to also reassure Nigerians that due attention will be placed on pursuing the 25-Year Strategic Railway Master Plan which is aimed at rehabilitating the existing 3,505km narrow gauge rail line and developing and constructing new standard gauge rail lines across the country.

As we celebrate the symbolic return of rail service today I wish to reiterate the commitment of this Administration to pursue with greater vigour and determination rehabilitation and construction of other rail lines including the major Lagos-Calabar and Kano-Lagos lines.

As we get down to work, I look forward to flagging off many more lines outlined in our transport policy programme.

Thank you, and safe journey to all our travellers.

The Lion Of The Delta


About seven years after its commencement, the first phase of the Abuja-Kaduna Standards Rail Gauge was commissioned by President Muhammadu Buhari, with a pledge to ensuring that the country has a working rail system.

The above quote is from The Guardian newspaper - where former media assistant to GEJ used to work (or has he even gone back to the company?). Say what you like, the fact is GEJ did not commissioned the project - PMB did.
PMB gets all the credit, just like you lot were so quick to give credit to many project started by OBJ and Yar'adua.

God Bless Amaechi,
God Bless Buhari
God Bless Nigeria

Shameless APC! Claiming Jonathan's sweat.

Tchief Amaechi collected full payment for Mono Rail that he didn't do 10%. That is CORRUPTION.

We have this new railway today because Amaechi did not ignore and refused to complete was was started by the people before him, government is continuum and this is common sense.


It is the obligation and responsibility of the useless and incompetent Wike to complete what other people started before him, this is what governance is all about.


ipob logic is always upside down logic..

It is good the rail project has been completed....but this is a PDP legacy though.

APC should do its own by ensuring Abuja-Lagos and the East-West rail is completed too.

While i must commend the president for acknowledging the past administration much to d dismay of ppl who say he only complains and blames the past administration, this is proof he can give honour to whom honour is due. However i consider it a Joke and a little over zealous to hail amaechi as chief. He only did what u appointed him to do. Deserves nothing more than a pat on d back for a job well done. We are anticipating that of fashola in ernest. God bless Nigeria
