Minister of Transportation, Hon. Chibuike Amaechi, has hinted that the Federal Government has acknowledged the importance of playing brotherly role among all Africans to help build the sub-region economically.
Amaechi, made this known, while receiving a member of the World Meteorological Organisation Roberts O. Masters, who paid him a courtesy visit, on behalf of the world agency, to ascertain the position the Federal Government on citing the African version of the World Meteorological Organisation in the country.
While responding to the request made by Masters, he said Federal Government is ready to play a leading role in Africa, stating that Africa was actually lucky to have a country like Nigeria in the region.
According to Amaechi: “I am actually happy to see you make this visit in having the Nigerian Government’s consent in vying for this office. I know, as much as you do, that this country is playing a leading role across all sectors, in Africa, and I am assuring you that this will not be left out. I am going to present this issue before the Federal Government and to ensure that such office is cited here.
