Amaechi Tells APC Govt, ‘It’s Time To Stop Blaming Jonathan For Our Predicament’
Transport Minister, Rotimi Amaechi has urged the Muhammadu Buhari-led government to focus on delivering good governance rather than blaming ex-President Goodluck Jonathan relentlessly for the country’s woes.
“I agree with those who said we should stop criticising the last government and that we should do our own,” Amaechi told The Nation.
The minister, who harped on the urgent need for the revitalisation of the country’s infrastructure, said fingering Jonathan in every predicament of the country won’t take the current administration anywhere.
“We need to leverage on what we know. People are shouting intermodal transport; I went to the new airport in Singapore and I didn’t find one person at the airport.
“As you walk in, technology takes over.
“They also said in the next few years, they would introduce driverless cars. We should also think outside the box about how to improve our transport sector and think less about how sun and moon affect the sector or building more bus stops.
“We should see how much investment we can put in the area of ICT. Intelligence transportation should not be ignored,” Amaechi added.
