The Lagos State Commissioner for Waterfront Infrastructure Development, Ahmed Kabiru Abdullahi, has also come out to oppose President Muhammadu Buhari, on his approval of $1.9 billion for the construction of Kano-Niger Republic rail network.
Abdullahi, making his stand know on Saturday, via a post on his Facebook page, directly addressed to President Buhari, said there was no need for such a project.
According to him, “What we need now is to link the Abuja-Kaduna rail to Kano, Daura and Katsina, while he also proposed other internal projects to be put into consideration by President Buhari.
Such other rail projects he listed include, “Abuja-Ibadan-Lagos; Lokoja-Enugu-Port Harcourt; Lagos- Port Harcourt and Abuja-Minna-Sokoto.
With these, if embarked upon, addressing President Buhari, he said: “This will make you the fatter of Nigeria’s Infrastructure development.”
Below is Abdullahi’s address to President Buhari on his Facebook page.
Dear Mr. President,
We don’t need a train to Niger Republic! What we need now is to link the Abuja-Kaduna rail to Kano, Daura and Katsina, instead!
