Amaechi Apologies For Abuja-Kaduna Train Breakdown by Ofunaofu: 8:44am On Nov 24, 2020
Minister of Transportation Rotimi Amaechi has apologised to Nigerians for the breakdown on the Abuja-Kaduna rail locomotives which occurred between November 18 and November 20.
The minister made the plea on Monday at the Moniya rail station during the routine inspection of the ongoing rail project in Ibadan.

“I want to apologise to Nigerians over what happened at the Abuja-Kaduna rail station.
“We now have new locomotives and we have called the Chinese because we never expected the mechanical fault at this early stage.

“On behalf of the Federal Government, the ministry and the Nigerian Railway Corporation (NRC), we apologise to Nigerians and I have instructed the NRC to fix it or invite the Chinese.
“If this is happening now, then they should bring back our old locomotives, it will just affect turnaround times because we get the new locomotive to increase the turnaround time,” he said.

Amaechi called for an increase in the pace of work by the China Civil Engineering Construction Corporation (CCECC) adding that Covid-19 pandemic was no longer an excuse.
The minister said although the CCECC were doing well, they need to increase their pace to enable the ministry to deliver the project on schedule.

The Permanent Secretary, Federal Ministry of Transportation, Mrs Madeleine Ajani, said there was a significant improvement in the ongoing work from what it was in October.
Ajani said the ministry was not shifting their date of the commissioning but would rather put more pressure on the CCECC to enable them to achieve their targets.

She explained the need for Lagos to have standard gauge train due to the population adding that in less than one and a half hours that the train would move from Lagos to Ibadan.
Ajani said that the establishment of the Standard gauge railway would also decongest both the road transportation and movement of cargo from the ports while people living in Ibadan could come and work in Lagos on a daily basis
The Managing Director, Nigeria Railway Corporation, Mr Fidet Okhiria, said there was an improvement in the construction output by the contractors adding ”hopefully by December some of the stations would be completed’’.

“We also need to have more stations so that passengers will not need to wait for the train to leave Ebute-Meta Station before getting to Agege station which means that the two trains can be in a section.

“This can be done with the help of signal and communication hence train should be able to communicate with train as well as station should be able to communicate with station simultaneously.

“The delay in the rail construction along Apapa ports corridors is due to the Oando pipeline along Apapa corridor,” Okhiria said.

He disclosed that the train would start operating from Lagos to Moniya in Ibadan by Dec. 7.
According to Okhiria, 24 coaches, four passenger locomotives, nine freight locomotives and shunting locomotives had arrived Lagos while two of the freight locomotives would be transferred to Warri for a project.

Good man.

Ameachi is that man who has shown without doubt that he is the best Performing minister in this administration. Big up to him. Meanwhile, NIgeria is about to be sanctioned by the UNITED KINGDOM PARLIAMENT. It said Those who murdered NIgerians at the end SARS protest at lekki will not benefit from trade and travel to UK.

Even though Buhari has a bunch of incompetent politicians in his cabinet, I consider Chibuike Amaechi the best among them based on performance.

It seems the ministry of transport is the only performing ministry under this clueless administration.
