He said the industrial park would gulp $ 241 . 2 m while the Bonny Deep Seaport will gulp $ 461 . 9 m .

The minister explained , “The Federal Executive Council has approved the award of contracts for the rehabilitation and reconstruction of the Port Harcourt- Maiduguri eastern narrow gauge railway , with new branch lines and trans -shipment facilities .

“ There is another connecting narrow gauge to standard gauge at Kafanchan. There is a branch line from Gombe or before Maiduguri to Damaturu and Gashau . ”

Still on PPP, the Minister of Interior , Rauf Aregbesola , said the council approved the establishment of the Nigeria Correctional Service Shoe , Garment , and Leather Processing Factories in Aba , Abia State as well as Janguza, Kano State.

“ The benefit , beside the employment of Nigerians, is the opportunity for training of the inmates of our correctional facilities in Janguza, Kano State and Aba in Abia State.

“ The contract for full business skills compliance certificate is given to Messrs LG Investment Limited , a Nigerian company which is partnering with a Chinese company , Full Technology Incorporated from Beijing , China, ” he said .

Abuja to port Harcourt is good, Abuja to Lagos is okay, Abuja to the east is fine cause Abuja is the Centre of Nigeria but Maiduguri?

I don't get the rationale behind it.

As for me and my family, we had long embraced saying the truth. And the real truth in this matter is that, buhari has shown more commitment, talking less and doing more in repositioning this country to attain greatness in no distant time.
