The Emir of Kano, Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero has commended the Honourable Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi for keeping his word ahead of tomorrow’s ground breaking ceremony of the Kaduna-Kano standard gauge rail line in Dawakin district, Kano.
The Royal Father who stated this in the ancient city of Kano in an exclusive interview with Aspheric TV expressed delight at the pace of infrastructural development, particularly rail transportation in Nigeria since Amaechi assumed office a few years ago.
Describing Amaechi as a gentleman, Alhaji Ado Bayero recounted his encounter with the former Rivers state governor this way:
“I will like to seize this opportunity to thank the Minister of Transportation for being a gentleman. I met him a couple of times and he promised me three things, not on a personal level but officially.
“He promised that the rail line to Katsina will extend to Niger Republic and that it would be done within a short period of time. I was there to witness it. At that function, he promised to commission one or two projects in Kano. A month or two later, he fulfilled that promise. He also pledged that the President will do the commissioning and that has been fulfilled with the commissioning slated for Dawakin tomorrow. That’s what I call a gentleman; someone who will make a promise and fulfil it,” he said…..Details later
