A presidential media aide, Lauretta Onochie, has drawn the attention of Nigerians to the evil works of some saboteurs of President Muhammadu Buhari's administration.
In a video she shared via her Twitter page on Thursday, May 13, Onochie reported that some vandals have destroyed the recently constructed rail lines linking Abuja - Kaduna and Itakpe - Warri.
The media aide to the president, who noted that this was a heart-breaking development, claimed it was done by detractors of the Buhari-led government.
She stated that while the federal government is striving to better the lives of Nigerians, some evil fellows are bent on rubbishing its laudable efforts.
"This is heart-breaking. Vandalisation of Abuja - Kaduna and Itakpe - Warri rail lines. Critical infrastructure! The government is working to serve the people.
"Some people are sabotaging the efforts of the government to serve Nigerians.Saboteurs everywhere. Who did it to us?"
Meanwhile, the government said it was set to embark on the construction of another set of railway lines in addition to the ones already completed or currently under rehabilitation.
This much was revealed by the minister of transportation, Chibuike Amaechi. He revealed this during the ministry's annual press briefing on its programmes, projects and activities and those of its agencies.
The minister explained that the projects were, however, currently facing some little problems. One is financial as there are no funds yet for the project. Nigeria, he said, is waiting for Asian power China to approve funds for the constructions.
“We have awarded the following contracts and we are about to start and we have even tried to solve the financial problems.
“The ones we are about to start include Ibadan to Kano, that we are waiting for funds from China."
