Former Governor of Rivers State and now the Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, has in a recent interview described President Muhammadu Buhari as someone who does not like to show off, adding also that he is such a shy person.
Speaking in an interview with the Publisher of Ovation Magazine, Dele Momodu, the minister revealed that President Muhammadu Buhari led administration has named the yet to be commissioned Itakpe-Warri rail line project after former President Goodluck Jonathan.
According to Amaechi, the outbreak of Coronavirus in Nigeria is the reason why the president has not commissioned the project.
His words, “Now the project is ready for Commissioning but because of Coronavirus, everything is on hold.
“And you know the President is a shy person. He doesn’t like public show.
“What he said is that let’s just focus on our achievements and by the time we leave office people will see what we have done but some of us are insisting that we commission some of our projects. We have decided to name it after former President Goodluck Jonathan.”
Meanwhile, Lauretta Onochie, a social media aide to President Muhammadu Buhari has hinted that the current lockdown put in place by the government of Nigeria may be extended due to the rising cases of the coronavirus (COVID-19) infection.
