Speaking on Thursday in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital, Amaechi submitted that the Buhari administration deserves a lot of gratitude from Nigerians for investing massively in infrastructural projects, particularly the train project.
He spoke during the launch of the wifi-enabled Mass Bus Transit System execute by the administration of Governor Dapo Abiodun in Ogun State.
The Minister said despite many criticisms that have come the way of the President over the railway project, Buhari has continued to be tenacious and Nigerians need to show appreciation.

According to Amaechi, “What you (Nigerians) owe us is not only gratitude, I know you won’t, some of you, but most of you will, if you are APC (members), what you owe us is the gratitude of the tenacity of the President, who despite the criticism of borrowing money is continuing to construct the railway, that is what you owe us. Because the moment you say to a man you are doing well, he will do more.
“In Fact he approved that we should redirect the initial design of the railway from Lagos through Apapa to Epe to Lekki deep sea port so that we don’t have a logjam as we have now in Apapa at the Lekki deep sea port which will conclude construction by September and then commission it in September.”
