Rotimi Amaechi, Minister of Transportation, has expressed confidence that the Federal University of Transportation Daura, in Katsina State will be launched in September.
Amaechi stated this yesterday after inspecting the level of work at the university, alongside Magdalene Ajani, his Permanent Secretary, Fidet Okhiria, the Managing Director of Nigerian Railway Corporation, and other management staffers of the ministry.
”They (the contractors) said it remains seven buildings and that they will be ready before September.
”I have asked the permanent secretary to invite them for a meeting so that this school can start functioning from September.
The minister, while also inspecting Dala dry port, commended the contractors for the work done so far.
Amaechi, however, urged them to ensure speedy completion of the project to enable President Muhammadu Buhari inaugurate it on time.
”If you say I’m not impressed that will be wrong. They promised me that they will complete the project by today.
”Have they completed the structures? Yes, but I didn’t see the landscaping. So, I said until they complete the landscaping, I will not be able to bring the president here.
”If they complete the landscaping, we can then bring the president to come and inaugurate the project, but it appears they have finished the structures,” he said.
