Muhammadu Buhari has disclosed that the Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, created a serious problem for him when he pledged to construct a railway linking the South-East zone to the Northern part of Nigeria.
Buhari made the disclosure during the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential campaign in Enugu, on Thursday.
He lamented that fulfilling the promise Amaechi made would be difficult.
He said: “Amaechi has made you people a promise and I don’t know how to fulfil it. But I can see how I will fulfil it by getting the Federal Executive Council members to approve it.”
The president said the promise Amaechi made was not presented to the FEC, adding that it would have been proper to get approval from FEC before making it open.
