Transport Minister Amaechi Says APC Never Promised To Fix Nigeria In A Year

The Minister of Transport and Director General of the campaign organisation of President Mohammadu Buhari during 2015 general election, Chibuike Amaechi, yesterday, said the All progressives Congress (APC) government never promised to fix Nigeria’s problem within a year, urging Nigerians to wait till the end of four years.

Rotimi Amaechi said this just as the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed cautioned Nigerians making statement that could cause religious disharmony, warning, “no nation has ever survived religious war.”
The duo spoke in Ilorin, Kwara State capital during a North Central town hall meeting for the people of Kogi, Niger and host state, Kwara, by the federal government.

“We did not promise that the challenges will be solved in one year. If we promised that the challenges would be solved in one year, you would have given us one year, but you gave us four years mandate; so, wait till the end of four years,” Amaechi said.

While giving stewardship of his ministry, the transport minister said the failure of the National Assembly to approve the Federal Government’s borrowing plan from China was holding the government back, urging the people from the three states to prevail on the National Assembly to approve the loan. He said the loan, if accessed, would enable the federal government to embark on the revitalisation of rail projects which would create more jobs for Nigerians.
