Sambo lauds President Buhari for investing in infrastructural development

The Minister of Transportation, Mr Mu’azu Sambo, has commended President Muhammadu Buhari for investing in infrastructure, adding that no administration has invested more in infrastructural development than that of President Buhari.

A statement from Mr Eric Osegwe, spokesperson of the ministry said on Saturday in Abuja that Sambo spoke when he inspected facilities in Lagos.

The facilities included Tin-Can, Apapa ports and the Mobolaji Johnson train station, Ebutte-Meta, among others.

Sambo, however, acknowledged that despite the tremendous achievements of the Buhari administration, there was still a lot to be done.

The minister also promised to liaise with the Minister of Works and Housing, Mr Babatunde Fashola, to see how the Tin-Can and Apapa access roads could be fixed.

In his words, “I have seen all the subsequent governments in this country. There was no administration in this country that had invested in infrastructure like the Buhari government.

“Unfortunately, the things we have to do are not only those for the Ministry of Transportation.

“You saw when we got down at Ijora, the beginning of Ijora Causeway, we had to look at how bad the road is.

“So, we’re going to talk to our brothers and sisters at the Federal Ministry of Works and Housing, synergise with them and ensure that the road is more motorable once again.”

Concerning the kidnapped victims of the ill-fated March 28, Abuja-Kaduna bound train; Sambo said that the government was working assiduously to secure their release.

He further reiterated that despite the huge economic loss, it would be insensitive to run the trains while the victims were still in captivity.

He lauded an indigenous company, Sifax Group, for creating employment for the youths and for helping to decongest the ports.

Sambo promised to do all he could to support the maritime industry, saying, “if we get the maritime industry right, we will not depend on oil.”

Other areas visited were the NPA facility with a special interest in its ultra-modern simulation centre and the Ebutte-Metta train station.
