Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, Minister of Transportation, has accused former President Goodluck Jonathan also collected loan from China to execute projects in the country.
In an interview with Channels TV, Amaechi said the loan being referred to by the PDP chieftain was actually taken by ex-President Jonathan.
He said: “There’s a gentleman who went to AIT, and said ‘oh I should resign’ and I wonder which university he graduated from, certainly not University of Port Harcourt,”
“He said I should resign. Resign from what? Are you saying those projects weren’t executed? Is there no Kaduna-Abuja railway?
“By the way, he said he is PDP; that loan was taken under President Goodluck Jonathan’s government.
“The loan he’s talking about — the Kaduna-Abuja railway — was signed by the President Goodluck Jonathan government.
“Don’t forget that we told the whole world when commissioning that project, that 80 percent of that project was executed by President Goodluck Jonathan’s government.
“The loan was taken by President Goodluck Jonathan’s government, and for that reason we had to name the train station and infrastructure in Agbor after President Goodluck Jonathan’s government for that laudable achievement.”
