Minister of Transportation Rotimi Amaechi has apologised to Nigerians for the breakdown on the Abuja-Kaduna rail locomotives.

The train breakdown was recorded between November 18 and November 20.
Amaechi who made the plea at Moniya rail station during the routine inspection of the ongoing rail project in Ibadan, disclosed that they’ve invited the Chinese

He said;

Quote
“I want to apologise to Nigerians for what happened at the Abuja-Kaduna rail station.

“We now have new locomotives and we have called the Chinese because we never expected the mechanical fault at this early stage.

“On behalf of the Federal Government, the ministry, and the Nigerian Railway Corporation, we apologise to Nigerians and I have instructed the NRC to fix it or invite the Chinese.

“If this is happening now, then they should bring back our old locomotives, it will just affect turnaround times because we get the new locomotive to increase the turnaround time.”

The Minister also advocated for increased pace of work by the China Civil Engineering Construction Corporation. Amaechi who noted that the COVID-19 pandemic was no longer an excuse, said an increased pace of work will lead to delivery of the job on time.

You miserable and useless Ministers. Zero performance. You brought foreigners to install public infrastructure. Nothing informed you to ensure Nigerian engineers are trained to tackle any emergencies. You are interested in your pockets not in developing the country.
