The minister for transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, has commissioned the train service that was completed by the previous government of Goodluck Jonathan.
At the inauguration of the Port Harcourt – Aba Mass Transit Train Services in Port Harcourt, Amaechi said he never knew that Nigerian had a good railway system.
He said: “In fact, I think we have a problem; most people don’t believe that the railway transport is functioning in Nigeria. I didn’t even know, until I started this tour, I never knew that the railway was functioning, it was even from his (MD’s) speech that I learnt that there are some coaches or services that go to Kano or Port Harcourt or elsewhere.
According to the transport minister the federal government is to create seven more rail corridors of standard gauge railways in the country.He stated that the initiative was a public-private-partnership which sought to modernise and enlarge railway transportation across Nigeria.“This initiative is aimed at remodelling and redevelopment of our major railway stations within the country.
“Under the rail modernisation programme, government will open new railway lines to achieve an efficient rail network.“The Ministry of Transportation has carried out feasibility studies to create seven additional rail corridors of standard gauge railways under the public-private-partnership initiative,” he stated.
However, it seems to be the same new train service between Makurdi and Port Harcourt that the former vice president Namadi Sambo commissioned on behalf of Jonathan in Makurdi on January 24, when he said that Jonathan had redefined the railways, aviation and road transport.
