Eze Hails Amaechi for THISDAY Minister of the Decade Award



Minister of Transportation, Mr Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, has been applauded over the award investiture on him as THISDAY Editor’s Choice Minister of the Decade.

A chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Mr Eze Chukwuemeka Eze, in a press statement, described the award as a recognition of his unprecedented and unbeatable performance and achievements in the rail and general transportation sector wherein he holds sway.

Mr Amaechi was chosen from amongst the 43 Ministers serving under the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari, alongside other distinguished awardees who have made remarkable inputs in different areas of life.

In the statement, Mr Eze, a former spokesman of the defunct New Peoples Democratic Party, (nPDP), commended Nigerians and the organisers for beaming their searchlight to see the landmark achievements of the Minister, which he said are touching on virtually all facets of the economy.

He said with the award, Mr Amaechi is reinforced to deliver more dividends of good governance to Nigerians whose yearnings for a purposeful leadership is being met under the APC and Buhari government.

Describing the Minister as someone whom God has blessed which no man can curse, the gold fish who have no hiding place, a trailblazer, Mr Eze tasked Nigerians to continue to support Amaechi in his drive to reposition all aspects of the transportation sector for optimum output, saying, “Truly, Amaechi deserves the best from this nation.”

The APC stalwart, who was the first to name the Minister MR RAILWAY, said that the award and what the former Governor of Rivers State was doing for the country didn’t come to him as a surprise because what he accomplished in the South-South state of Nigeria during his administration as the Governor prepared him for greater services to the country.

While presenting the award to him, national chairman of APC, Mr Adams Oshiomhole, said the Minister is a pride to the ruling party and deserves the award, considering his impacts in the development of railway in the country.

According to the organisers, Mr Amaechi’s recognition was in line with President Buhari’s unreserved faith and confidence in him, which led to his reappointment as Minister of Transportation.

They further stated that the President’s confidence in Mr Amaechi was testamentary to his drive and commitment to reviving the ailing and almost moribund railway system in the country and giving Nigerians a better traveling experience.

The award was in commemoration of the 25th anniversary of THISDAY newspaper in the print media.
