Minister of Transport, Rotimi Amaechi has challenged the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to tell Nigerians what it achieved for the country in the 16 years it ruled it.
Amaechi, who spoke at a Special Town Hall Meeting on Infrastructure, organized by the Ministry of Information and Culture in Ibadan, said: “we are ready for the PDP candidate to confront us with what they achieved in 16 years and compare them to what we have done in just three and half years.
The minister urged Nigerians to resist the PDP by voting for Buhari and ensuring that they guarded their votes during the 2019 general elections.
“We are open for the debate, our achievements on infrastructure are there to showcase,” he said.
The minister disclosed that the government was working hard to ensure the completion of Lagos-Ibadan standard gauge rail project by February 2019.
“We are working day and night on this project and we have started laying the tracks from Papalanto.
“I want to thank the people and the communities along the rail track for their cooperation because they have never given us trouble.”
The minister said that after completing the Lagos-Ibadan section of the project, the focus would turn to the Lagos-Kano standard gauge.
