The minister said that one would encounter no less than 17 checkpoints with many security operatives before getting to the Nigerian border.

“I asked at the regional meeting that why is it that we saw four checkpoints on the way to Togo and Lome.

“The security officer at Lome apologised, saying they usually had two checkpoints but due to Nigerian elections, they increased the checkpoints to four. Amaechi apologises to Nigerians over suspension of free Iju-Abeokuta train ride.

“In Nigeria, election or no election we saw 17 checkpoints. The government security officers said that they did not know where the people came from but it would be handled,” he said.

The minister also asked Nigerians to be patient with President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration as he is working on fixing the Badagry road with help from two contractors.
