Railway: Amaechi Accuses Chinese Firm Of Breaching Contract

Rotimi Amaechi, Nigeria's Minister of Transportation has accused a Chinese firm, Chinese Railway Rolling stock Corporation of breaching a contract on the railway construction. It was learnt that Nigeria was to take delivery of 10 additional coaches that will be deployed on the Abuja-Kaduna and Lagos-Ibadan rail lines in June, they are part of the 64 coaches being manufactured for Nigerian rail lines by the Chinese Railway Rolling stock Corporation.

However while inspecting the pace of work at the CRRC, Amaechi accused the Chinese firm of breaching a contract with the Federal Government by failing to meet the delivery date as agreed. He was quoted in a statement issued on Monday by the Federal Ministry of Transportation as saying, “We need the coaches by June latest. We need coaches that can carry men from one point to another and we need a minimum of 10 coaches now out of the 64. I requested for 10 coaches now because we need to improve on the Kaduna-Abuja line.

“If the 10 (coaches) don’t come, there is nothing I can do but they have to come because they have to manufacture for us to use in Kaduna-Abuja and again Lagos-Ibadan, which will soon be ready. We also have to ensure that we get coaches that we can use pending when they finish the construction of the 64 coaches.”
