It's too early to Judge Buhari's administration -Rotimi Amaechi

The Minister of Transportation Rotimi Amaechi has urged Nigerians not to be hasty in passing judgment of non-performance on the federal government.

Amaechi made this remark while fielding questions from journalists at the premises of Eko Hotel and Suites in Victoria- Island, Lagos, saying, “After all, we are barely eight months in office. What we crave of Nigerians is to be patient with us as there are silver linings in the horizon.”

Earlier during the interactive session with Ports Concessionaries, which held under the auspices of the Shippers Council of Nigeria and the Nigeria Ports Authority, Amaechi said the gathering was to afford him the opportunity to cross-check information at his disposal.

He said the federal government was not   pleased with the running of the ports even after it had  been concessioned and that he was particularly worried at the way the funds accruing to the government were  reportedly being spent.

“Almost ten years after NPA surrendered its cargo handling functions to private terminal operators, there seems not to be any remarkable difference even though it is a known fact that the maritime sector generates a lot of money every year without a corresponding contribution to the budget,” he said.
