ABUJA, (CAJ News) – THE Rivers State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC), which welcomed flag-off of the Abuja – Kaduna rail line, has urged government to shift attention to the Calabar-Lagos railway.
The party said this would go a long way to promote commercial activities in the South as well as reduce youth restiveness and militancy in the region.
APC Rivers Chairman, Davies Ikanya, welcomed the flag-off of the 300 kilometre Abuja-Kaduna line on Tuesday.
He congratulated President Muhammadu Buahri and the Minister of Transportation, Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, for the exercise.
“We celebrate their determination and commitment, which made the completion of this epochal project initiated by the administration of General Olusegun Obasanjo at this point in time a reality,” said Ikanya.
He described the flag-off of the rail line as an evident demonstration of how serious the administration of Buhari was to decisively tackle the infrastructure decay in the country.
“With this feat achieved in less than a year of his ministerial appointment, everyone can now see the wisdom of President Buhari in
appointing Amaechi to head the Ministry of Transportation at this time.”
