By Olivia Isibor (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – The Minister of Transportation, Mr Rotimi Amaechi, has expressed happiness that President Muhammadu Buhari is not being swayed by the critics of his administration’s borrowing for infrastructural projects.
Amaechi stated this on Sunday during the inspection of the Lagos/Ibadan standard gauge railway prelude to its inauguration in Moniya, Ibadan.
In his words, “I am happy Mr president is doing what he wants to do and not listening to criticisms on this project, because America is borrowing trillions of dollars and we are borrowing less than N100 billion and everyone is talking”
“If you check out the loans, they are not like other loans. Other loans are lent straight to the government, but this we are paying straight to the contractors and people are still not satisfied.
“I pray that the president would continue, by not listening to anybody, once he makes up his mind that this is right for the country,” Amaechi said.
