Presidency, Terminate The Chinese Rail Contract

I recall that government of ex-President Goodluck Jonathan awarded a contract of over US$12bn for the construction of the Lagos-Calabar rail line to a Chinese firm just some few months before it left office.

To me and other right thinking Nigerians, we urge President Muhammadu Buhari to please terminate this contract and the amount involved be used in completing the Ajaokuta Steel Complex.

I believe if completed, the rails and other steel related parts that the Chinese would have brought into the country could be produced here after giving job opportunities to thousands of jobless Nigerians.

Thereafter, the rail project could be renegotiated at a highly reduced cost
