Amaechi to restore maritime and railway sectors

13 November 2015, 15:02

Abuja - The new Minister of Transport, Rotimi Amaechi, will help revive the ailing railway and maritime sectors, his All Progressives Congress (APC) party said on Thursday.

The endorsement comes a day after President Muhammadu Buhari confirmed him as the minister.

“Amaechi is coming in as the Transport Minister at a time when the railway system is moribund and the maritime sector in a chaotic state. We know what Amaechi is made of and we expect him not only to turn around the fortunes of the railways but also to do same to the maritime sector,” Dr Davies Ibiamu Ikanya, APC Rivers Chairman, said.

He said the party heartily congratulate our leader on his meritorious appointment as Minister of Transport while at the same time extending its heartfelt gratitude to Buhari for his confidence in Amaechi.

“We wish to assure Mr. President and all Nigerians that Amaechi, who has a track record of performance, will deliver even beyond expectations if given the necessary cooperation,” Ikanya said.

The party appealed to all Rivers people and the entire Nigerian population to accord Amaechi all the support and prayers he needs to enable him translate his magic wand exhibited at the state level to the national level for the benefit of all Nigerians.

It equally congratulated the 35 other ministers and called on Nigerians to give them every needed cooperation to deliver and make Nigerians feel the positive change promised by APC.
