Jonathan released N34bn for dredging of River Niger but Pres Buhari will get it done with N100m- Rotimi Amaechi claims

Minister of Transport, Rotimi Amaechi says the Goodluck Jonathan administration released N34 million for the dedging of River Niger but that the Buhari-led administration would get the job done for N100 million only.

Amaechi disclosed this at the opening of a conference on Fast-tracking Port Reforms hosted by The Nation in conjunction with the Federal Ministry of Transportation in Lagos yesterday.

Ameachi in his opening remarks at the conference said
"When the River Niger was first approved for dredging by the previous administration, it was approved for N47billion and N34billion was paid to the contractor. Dancers were called in and there was a party. We are not dredging the River Niger with billions of naira. We are dredging the River Niger with just N100m. When we flagged it off recently, did you see us dancing? Was there a party? I just went to see the governor and told him that the project will start today and will be finished in one month. The governor said he will accompany me, and I said ‘ok’. So, I asked the governor to flag it off since it’s located in his state. People are wondering how on earth we are going to dredge the River Niger for N100m when the previous government awarded same contract for N47billion? But we are going to dredge the River Niger, using dredgers owned by the National Inland Waterways Authority (NIWA). NIWA has dredgers, but the previous government preferred to give contractors money to dredge the river with private dredgers while NIWA’s dredgers were lying idle somewhere in Port Harcourt. The NIWA MD told me the agency has dredgers, but it’s been hired out to somebody in Port Harcourt. So, we had dredgers, but the previous administration hired them out to some persons in Port Harcourt while paying a contractor billions of naira to use privately owned dredgers at a very high cost. I told the NIWA MD that I will look for money to fuel their dredgers, and work has started. That is why we are dredging the River Niger with just N100m,” Amaechi said

Its not possible for river niger to be dredged with 100m. Amechi you are a liar. To rent a 14x14 size of dredger is about 20-25m monthly not inclusive of disel for daily usage. How many months will it take them to dredge this river to the level needed. I just gave you guys am idea,make your calculation,100m is not possible.APC are Failures and full of PROPAGANDA.All their promises are now voice mail.

It really beggars belief at what Nigerians will believe. No wonder the criminals like Amaechi can say anything and gullible fools will lap it up.

For all you gullible fools, No Dredging company will leave their office to dredge the Niger for N100m. Even that amount will not transport their equipment.

Go and see how much Amaechi spent on 2 miles overhead rail that any right minded person will accomplish for less than half what he spend and he did not complete it.

Because they know that gullible fools will believe their rubbish, they feed them to you. N100m will not dredge a a village river let alone River Niger. *Are you shitting me?*

So it is cheaper to dredge river Niger than to host Wole Soyinka in your state

Anonymous said...

I'm sure you didn't even read the story. A govt agency already has the dredgers needed. We should he go ahead to rent again????

Its people like you that make some people like GEJ rob the county dry and in your foolishness still be praising them.

Ur argument makes less sense ok,bcs after every regime is an account of stewardship so if gej is the last handing over then its only right to involve him,futhermore any sum above certain sum of contract is taken to fec for presidential approval,the truth is that gej is a certified confirmed shameless unrepentant looter worse off militants n armed/highway robber.
Take strong note.
