Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has commended the Federal Government represented by Rotimi Amaechi for continuing with the revival of the railway transport system started by the previous administration.

In an address during the flag off of Aba-Port Harcourt railway line in Port Harcourt by the Minister of Transport who also happens to be the immediate past governor of Rivers, Rotimi Amaechi on Wednesday, Wike, represented by the Permanent Secretary Rivers State Ministry of Transport, Mrs. Stella Ebere Wigwe said that rail mass transit will enhance the durability of Nigerian roads under pressure due to excess vehicular movement.

The Rivers State Governor, who remarked that rail transportation, is an affordable, safe, and fast means of moving bulky goods will also provide jobs for the teeming population of unemployed Nigerians and help reduce pressure on our roads.
In his address, at the flag-off ceremony which held at the Port Harcourt Railway Station, the Minister of Transport, Rotimi Amaechi said that political party affiliation had no place in infrastructural development.

“There is no party in development, just as we say the naira has no colour. There is no PDP, no APC”, Mrs Ebere said
