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.

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.
