President Muhammadu Buhari, on Thursday, summoned the Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, over the $16 billion Eastern rail project and others.
Addressing State House Correspondents after the meeting, Amaechi admitted that there were “issues around transport” that he had to discuss with the President.
According to the Minister, Buhari’s blood pressure will rise if he does not brief him about issues in the railway sub-sector. 

He recalled that an approval had been given for the Eastern flank of the railway modernisation, “which has to do with from Port Harcourt to Maiduguri, cutting across Aba, Owerri, Enugu, Umuahia to Makurdi, Abakiliki, Awka and Lafia, down to Bauchi, Gombe, Yola and to Damaturu, and ends at Borno.”
He stated: “That is why I was summoned. Do not forget that the President sleeps and wakes up thinking about the railway, and if his BP will not rise, I must see him and tell him how far we have progressed. Once he hears that progress is being made, he feels a bit happy.
The Minister emphasised that the money was not available for the Eastern railway project, but said the government was considering a Public-Private arrangement.
“There are approvals, but we have to look for the money, the money is just not there. It is not easy, it is a total of about $16 billion, and you do not pluck $16 billion from the sky”, Amaechi said.
