Ibadan Dry Port to commence May – Amaechi



From Stella Obi, Ibadan

MINISTER of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, has promised to seek the approval of the Federal Executive Council (FEC) for the commencement of Ibadan Dry Port before the end of May.

  This was made known by Amaechi on Monday, when he paid a visit to the Olubadan of Ibadan, Oba Olalekan Balogun, in Ibadan, as part of consultation towards his presidential aspiration to take over from President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023.

  Amaechi made the promise while responding to a request from Senator Kola Balogun (PDP-Oyo South Senatorial District), for the completion of the Ibadan Inland Dry Port.

  The minister said that all the bottlenecks surrounding the delay of the project had been resolved assuring the Olubadan and the public that the project would commence operation once approved by FEC.

  He also assured the Central Council of Ibadan Indigenes (CCII) that a railway station would be named after an Ibadan indigene, pointing out that it would not be within the Ibadan Railway corridor.

  The APC presidential aspirant said he possessed all that would take him to make Nigeria better if given the opportunity to become the president.

  Amaechi described himself as a detribalised Nigerian, adding that as a firm believer in the Nigerian project, his cabinet as the Governor in Rivers had a sizable number of non-indigenes and does not belong to any geopolitical bloc as far as his presidential ambition is concerned.
