Written by on April 26, 2022

The 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.

Amaechi made this discloser while on Monday when he paid a visit to the newly crowned Olubadan of Ibadan, Oba Olalekan Balogun, at his Alarere Palace in Ibadan, as part of consultation towards his presidential aspiration to take over from President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023.

He 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.

According to him, all the bottlenecks surrounding the delay of the project had been resolved assuring the Olubadan and the general public that the project would commence operation once approved by FEC.

However 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 said he was 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.
