The Rivers State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has hailed the revolution in the rail sector engendered by the Muhammadu Buhari Administration through the Ministry of Transportation ably led by Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi. The party in a statement signed by the State Chairman, Dr. Davies Ibiamu Ikanya, expressed the hope that the Administration would in time fully revive and reposition the transportation sector as well as the entire Nigerian economy.

The commendation came ahead of the signing, on Thursday by the Federal Government, of contracts for the Port Harcourt – Calabar coastal rail line project expected to be completed in 2018 and the impending signing of contracts for the Kano – Kaduna railway project before the end of the week.

“We heartily congratulate the Muhammadu Buhari Administration for this revolution which it is executing through the Ministry of Transportation headed by our Leader, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi. We are convinced that this is just the beginning of greater things to come from the Ministry and the Buhari Administration,” Rivers APC said in the statement issued on Thursday in Port Harcourt.

It noted that the Kaduna – Abuja railway earlier commissioned by the Buhari Administration has already created 700 jobs, while the Lagos – Ibadan railway project will start before the end of the year, and will be completed in two years time. “If this is not revolution then we will like to know what revolution is. Truly, we have moved away from the PDP corruption economy to production economy,” the party said.

Rivers APC expressed happiness that Amaechi has taken his revolutionary trends to the national level and reassured Nigerians that they will witness greater feats before the end of the Buhari Administration. “The feats of Amaechi in Rivers State speak volumes and we are happy that he has not disappointed us and the entire country. We congratulate President Buhari not only for his faith in Amaechi but also for given him the conducive environment to operate and achieve all these feats,” the party said.

It also congratulated Nigerians on the discovery of high grade nickel in Kaduna State, describing it as “a major discovery for the Ministry of Solid Minerals, which is also planning to start the production of iron ore, lead, zinc, bitumen, coal, and gold in the next two to five years. The diversification effort is already gathering pace.”

Rivers APC urged Nigerians to continue to have faith in APC and President Buhari to turn around the fortunes of our country and not to be not be overwhelmed by the present economic challenges, which the party described as temporary.
