”There Will Be Demolition Of Houses” – Amaechi Warns Nigerians Ahead of Railway Projects
Minister of Transport, Rotimi Amaechi today spoke on the railway projects the Muhammadu Buhari administration will be embarking on.
Speaking in Lagos on Monday at a town hall meeting organised by the federal government, Amaechi said, ”I can assure you that by God’s grace, before the end of the year, we will commence work on the Lagos-Kano rail line. All these developments, he cautioned, would be accompanied by their pains for the people.
”Know that this is development, because when we come, don’t forget there will be pains. There will be demolition of houses. If we don’t demolish, then there will be no rail lines.
“You don’t expect that I will come from Ibadan to Tin Can and I will not touch some houses. I am just saying this, so that when we begin to approach you to negotiate for you to shift the house a bit, just allow the rail line pass through.”
