Minister of Transport, Rotimi Amaechi, says he agrees with Nigerians that have called on the Buhari-led government to stop criticizing the Goodluck Jonathan administrtaion and focus on how they can work towards improving the loves of Nigerians.
Amaechi who was strongly opposed to the last administration and worked for their exit, said this when he spoke at the inter-ministerial committee for the finalisation of the Draft National Transport Policy (NTP) recently.
“I agree with those who said we should stop criticising the last government and do our own. We need to leverage on what we know. People are shouting intermodal transport. I went to the new airport in Singapore and I didn’t find one person at the airport. As you walk in, technology takes over. They also said in the next few years, they would introduce driverless cars. We should also think outside the box about on how to improve our transport sector and think less about how the sun and moon affects the sector or building more bus stops. We should see how much investment we can put into ICT. Intelligence transportation should not be ignored. What we want to assure Nigerians is that under the Buhari administration, we would do everything possible to ensure that we maximise the resources which accrues to each ministry”
