I’m currently on one of the Standard Gauge Rail Lines that the @MBuhari Administration is completing (tracks finished, stations being built). We’re traveling at about 90km per hour, AC pumping,phones charging. It’s free cos it’s still test-run phase. I have about 3 hours to go :)
These photos (and above) taken in Agbor, Delta State, this morning. Agbor is home to the Railway Yard (Maintenance, Storage, Communications) of the 327km ITAKPE-AJAOKUTA-WARRI rail line. Also home to the biggest station on the line (under construction) #RailUPng #ItakpeWarriRail
This is AJAOKUTA Station under construction. Filmed today, on #ItakpeWarriRail Line. I boarded at Ujevwu community in Udu LGA of Delta State. We departed at 8.12am, and rolled into ITAKPE in Kogi State at about 2pm. 30+ years project, finally running! #RailUPng #PMBMeansBusiness

So yesterday, I read this article shared by our egbon @Olusegunverdict and I registered my personal opinion as a Nigerian.
Today, I hope to compile everything I said in a thread for easy accessibility.
#MyRebuttalToHisVerdict issa thread👇👇leggooo🕺🕺🕺
This may take a little time, the reason is simply because I might have to be away from my PC once in a while to attend to some network issues (Na that one dey feed my family for now😜😜😜).
But as much as I can update this thread, I will be quick to do so #MyRebuttalToHisVerdict
No, any view to any article or thread by anybody is not personal & that does not reduce the regards we have for those we look up to.
Just that during election season like this, we must all come to a conclusion that the best of men, are still men at their best. We can disagree!

“We’re doing rail. We will tell PDP, show us the one you did in 16 years.” #16vs4
“But you were a part of that [PDP] Government!”

Listen to how Amaechi fires back in this EXCLUSIVE, LEAKED video

RT if you want to see more leaked (BUT undoctored!) videos 🔥
Last week Amaechi took former DG SEC and World Bank VP Arunma Oteh to see the #LagosIbadanRail under construction. Here’s what she had to say: #TheYearOfInfrastructure #RAILUPng (1)

In Nigeria, please NEVER assume that educated folks (even Professors) understand the basic statement they are arguing about especially in politics.
This person on facebook said Buhari admin has no #PolicyDirection, so I did a little tutorial as basic as possible for her👇
THREAD
#PolicyDirection
Thank you for raising a few issues, & such issues are enough for conversation. So let's use the Latin maxim in law you stated: Res ipsa loquitor...Let FACTS speak:

Don't take my words for it, don't run EMOTION on it, let's use the maxim Law: Res ipsa loquitor
#PolicyDirection
So let's start from the basis with FACT that Nigeria poverty didn't start in 2015.
Now you said "lack of policy direction in combating poverty and making economy boisterous"....

Obasanjo was at loggerhead with Atiku..
Jonathan was as confused as his Sambo...

But Buhari gave Osinbajo free hands🙄🙄

President @MBuhari Administration is getting Nigeria back on track with Rail revolution. #PMBProjects #RailUpNg👇🏾
Nigeria’s Narrow-Gauge Rail System was conceived in the 1890s and built between 1898 & 1926, with a total length of 3,500KM. It consists of two primary lines; Lagos to Nguru and Port Harcourt to Maiduguri with spur lines to Eleme, Baro, Kaura Namoda and other places. #PMBProjects
These critical economic assets have since become decrepit, having suffered significant decline due to lack of investments in infrastructure maintenance.

ITAKPE – AJAOKUTA – WARRI RAIL LINE

327km standard-gauge rail line to link Itakpe in Kogi State to Ajaokuta and then on to Warri, Delta State (Itakpe to Ajaokuta, 50km; Ajaokuta to Warri, 277km) #RailUPng #GovtAtWorkNG

#Thread
2/ Conceived in the 1980s, construction commenced in 1987. Subsequent administrations failed to complete it and put it to use. President Buhari takes it as a priority project and is committed to completing it by 2019. #RailUPng #GovtAtWorkNG
3/ Originally envisioned as a freight-only line, to link key industries and ports in Nigeria’s iron ore and steel producing belt. Now being reconfigured into a Passenger and Freight rail line, to form the Central Line of Nigeria’s National Rail Network. #RailUPng #GovtAtWorkNG

I’ll be defecting to Abeokuta and back, bringing updates along the way about the progress of the #LagosIbadanRail. Stay tuned.

Live from Itakpe in Kogi State. This is one of the construction workers on #ItakpeWarriRail Line. “I praise the [Buhari Administration]. Before now we didn’t know there was a rail line in Kogi State. It’s Buhari that’s made it possible for us to see this. Make God bless am.”
Usman is a mechanical technician. He used to be a driver, then switched to technical work (which he says he learned from childhood, tinkering with cars.) He worked on the Obajana cement plant in 2015/16, and has now worked on #ItakpeWarriRail for 8 months.
Paul is from Kogi State. He is a Payloader operator, has been on the #ItakpeWarriRail project for about nine months. He’s looking forward to completing this phase of the project and starting work on the #ItakpeAbujaRail phase. #TheYearofInfrastructure
