Igo Aguma Defection: Citizens Quest’s Boss Educates Aguma On The Original Railway Plan For Port Harcourt City
Igo Aguma Defection: Citizens Quest’s Lady, Obiaruko Ndukwe Educates Aguma On Port City Railway Plan.
The 2020 DMOMA Awards Lady of Excellence who is also the Citizens Quest NGO boss, Chief Obiaruko Ndukwe has reacted to the defection of the former APC stakeholder, Igo Aguma to PDP.
Dez Mayorz Media reported earlier that Igo Aguma has joined PDP.
Hon Igo Aguma made shocking appearance at the Port Harcourt City PDP LGA campaign and said that PDP soup is the sweetest soup ever, commends Gov Nyesom Wike high profile Projects, said nothing concern Port Harcourt City with railways when they have Flyover. And that they won’t allow railway lines to pass through Port Harcourt City.
But, DMOMA Awards’ Lady of Excellence, Obiaruko Ndukwe bemoaned his utterance, refers his speech as a speech made by unIntelligent ignorant leader.
She went straight to educate Hon Igo Aguma on the real plans for Port Harcourt City which is centred on Railway lines.
Says Igo Aguma is exhibiting act of ignorance for comparing Gov Nyesom Wike’s flyover projects to Buhari’s (Rotimi Amaechi) Railway Projects.
She schooled Igo Aguma and every other Nigerians on the original plans of Port Harcourt City by the British, which is purely for train City that will serve as inter-modal transportation between train carrying coal from Enugu to ships waiting in Bonny via the River.
Below is her statement:
On the exhibition of ignorance by Igo Aguma while comparing Wike’s Flyovers in Port Harcourt and Buhari’s Railway project of the Eastern Corridor through Rivers State to Maiduguri, you can’t but admire the submission and brilliance of Ignatius Chukwu, senior journalist @Business Day Newspaper:
“A little history: Records say Port Harcourt was decided and built by the British purely for train. It was to serve as a city of inter-modal transportation between train carrying coal from Enugu to ships waiting in Bonny via the River. If it was for slaves, trekking and boats did it, but coal was massive cargo requiring train. You can see that train from Bonny to PH and South East to Borno is a mere reenactment of a long dream on commerce. Let our leaders train a bit, do seminars, etc.”
It is evident that those who claim to be Leaders in the political space are mostly ignorant of the economics of most sectors of government!
Even my elementary knowledge of Train Transportation tells me that heavy duty commerce like Coals, Fertilizers, Cement Agricultural produce and others were ferried through the Railways. It is expedient then, that with increased economic activities especially through the seaports of which Rivers State has one at Onne and a new one coming at Bonny, the Train Transportation should be revolutionized with improved services for optimum use.
While the construction of Flyovers is commendable, the blunt truth is that they are limited in terms of service delivery considering the high traffic situation in the city, as well as the weight of goods to be ferried to and from the Seaports.
Or will the Flyovers link up Onne Seaport and Bonny Deep Seaports to transport Goods?
A clear line should be drawn between ignorance and intelligence! Politics should be played towards the election year, while real governance is all year through!.
