I still don’t understand why $3.2 billion would be used to rehabilitate the narrow gauge rail line from Port Harcourt to Maiduguri, while the rest of the country is getting standard gauge rail.
Why not replace the narrow gauge with standard gauge from Port Harcourt to Jos with the same amount or just a little more? Why did the federal government award the construction of a Western standard gauge line from Lagos to Kano but not the Eastern line?
Railway should be in the Concurrent list. States should have the right to build railways just as they should have their own police to fight crime in their states.
Buhari, Rotimi Amaechi and the APC should know that Nigeria will collapse if it is not politically restructured urgently.
