The first daughter of the late former Vice President of Nigeria, Dr. Alex Ekwueme, Mrs. Chidi Onyemelukwe has expressed gratitude to President Muhammadu Buhari for naming the Nigerian Railways’ Operations Control Centre after their late father.
In a statement released yesterday in Abuja, Onyemelukwe noted that the revival of Nigeria railways by the Buhari’s administration is a realisation of one of Ekwueme’s dreams for the total overhaul of Nigeria’s infrastructure since their time in office in the Second Republic.
She once again on behalf of the family used the opportunity to thank the president for the posthumous honour.
She described the honour as well-deserved considering Ekwueme’s contributions to Nigeria’s socio-political development, noting that such honour will serve as an inspiration to present and future leaders.
She enjoined the country’s leaders to always give selfless service and put the country first in their activities.
Onyemelukwe also applauded the minister of Transportation, Hon. Rotimi Chibuike Amaechi for executing the agenda of the federal government towards the revival of Nigeria’s railway
