Here’s video of Amaechi’s Rivers Monorail did by his Administration, Governor Wike vows not to complete it

According to reports, Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State said although his administration will strive to complete numerous projects abandoned by predecessor, Chibuike Amaechi, the abandoned monorail will not be one of them. See video of Rivers Monorail

“Rivers people have told me not to touch the Monorail left behind by the other government,” he said today in an interview on Channels TV. Insiders said the project initiated by Amaechi has gulped over $400 million dollars, with the project far from being completed. In contrast, Cross River state that has spent less than $40million has its own monorail almost ready.

The monorail is a system designed by Intamin, and is similar to the monorail that was constructed in Moscow Russia for $240 million dollars by the same monorail manufacturer.

According to experts following the monorail development, the Moscow system that connects to the Moscow subway is more extensive than the Rivers system with more frequency of traffic and sophistication.

“The two companies building the pylons and track work designed by Intamin in Nigeria were; ARCUS GIBBS Nig Ltd and TSI Nig Ltd. Between the two partners and contractors with Rivers State, at least 40 billion naira ($270 million dollars) was spent.

Governor Wike had alleged that an additional $135million was spent on other related works, including standard infrastructure adjustments to clear the way for the rail line.

In Calabar Cross River State, the same firm Intamin, building the Rivers monorail, partnered with the government there to build a monorail system for N5 Billion (36 million dollars)! The Calabar system is reportedly already functioning and is now conducting test runs.

  1. This is pure lie and film tricks. No mono rail is working in PH. It’s pure fake from the promoters to get public sympathy and nothing more. The project is a waste of resources and Amaechi used it to syphon money out of Rivers State. For 8yrs the project never went pass 1km.

  2. WIKE SHOULD JUST COME OUT WITH ALL THE DETAILS AND INFORMATION,IF HE HAS GOT ANYTHING TO HIDE, AND HAND OVER TO EFCC, OR JUST LEAK THEM TO THE PRESS, AND SEE HOW THINGS WILL UNFOLD.

    • I sure the Calabar monorail project is less than 1km (or just about) long. It is yet to be completed ( or maybe abandoned).

  3. @John Brown is obvious you are not from rivers or you have not been there, monorail working without the track right?. Stop misleading people.
    That monorail is scam, Mr honorable minister use that monorail and sale of power plants in siphoning money for APC campaign.

  4. Amechi should tell rivers state people why cost difference being so much. Wike tag the cost all around the project site for people to see why u abadoned it. Just forget. Amechi should complete and return the balance. Blacklist the contractor after interogation.

  5. What a propaganda video….sotey na Oyinbo passengers dey inside sef……..lol. The thing is on ground there for any interested persons to see and make up their own minds, I beg. We will call our own Amechigate……..lol

  6. Guys, for those of u who took line,hook & sinker what Wike said about Rivers Monorail, let me say that u have the right to believe whatever u want to believe. As for me, i don’t believe Wike, not with the little & scanty information he has released!
