Ameachi made the declaration during a meeting with the Minister of State for Aviation, Mr Hadi Sirika at the presentation of final report of the Inter-Ministerial Committee for the Draft National Transport Policy, Vanguard writes.
“What we assure Nigerians is that under the Muhammadu Buhari administration, we would do everything possible to ensure that we maximise the resources that the president by way of budget releases to each ministry,” he said.
“I agree with those who said we should stop criticising the last government and that we should do our own.
“We need to leverage on what we know. People are shouting intermodal transport; I went to the new airport in Singapore and I didn’t find one person at the airport. As you walk in, technology takes over.”

Also, the Chairman of the committee, Mrs Ufon Usoro, explained that the National Transport Policy is a practical and pragmatic response to the country’s need for an integrated, modern and efficient transportation industry.
“It is hoped that all transport related Government Agencies in the Federal, State and Local Governments will adopt and reflect the broad principles in this document into each of their respective transport plans, as appropriate, ” she said.
