Rotimi Amaechi Breaks Silence, Gets Fed Up With APC’s Blame Game, Releases Powerful Statement Ahead Of 2019

The Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, has taken a swipe at his party, the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, for always blaming former President, Goodluck Jonathan’s administration.

The Minister disclosed this in Abuja, when the report of the Inter-Ministerial Committee for the Finalization of the Draft National Transport Policy, NTP, was submitted to him.

The Minister noted that: “The present administration should focus on achieving its campaign promises ahead of 2019, and stop criticizing Jonathan’s administration.”

“I agree with those who said we should stop criticizing the last government, and that we should focus on our campaign promises ahead of 2019.

“We need to leverage on what we know. People are shouting inter-modal transport; I went to the new Airport in Singapore, and I did not find one person at the Airport. As you walk in, technology takes over.

“They also said in the next few years, they would introduce driver-less cars. We should also think outside the box about how to improve our transport sector, and think less about how sun and moon affect the sector or building more bus stops.

“We should see how much investment we can put in the area of ICT. Intelligence transportation should not be ignored”.

He added: “What we assure Nigerians, is that under the Buhari administration; we would do everything possible to ensure that we maximize the resources that the President by way of budget releases to each Ministry.”

On the implementation of the policy, he said: “I assure you that we would take the next step you want us to take.

“Usually, people take Experts contribution for granted, but the fact is, Experts know better, and if we do not come to you, who would we go to?

“We will go through it and I will direct the Permanent Secretary to give a copy to the Minister of State for Aviation, while I read a copy. Once we are through and we share our views, we will take it to cabinet for approval.”
