Buhari spoke, yesterday, during the APC presidential campaign rally held at the main bowel of Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium, Enugu.
Buhari, who said it would be difficult for him to convince the Federal Executive Council (FEC) members for approval of such projects, however added that he would do his best to make them appreciate the need for it.
“Amaechi has made you people a promise and I don’t know how to fulfill it. But I can see how I will fulfill it by getting the Federal Executive Council members to approve it,” Buhari assured.
He said the promise Amaechi made was not presented to the FEC, noting that it would have been proper to get approval from FEC before making it open.
President Buhari, who thanked the people of the zone for trooping out to the event, advised them to always have faith in Nigeria as they did not have any other country, stressing that “we all must join hands to build a stronger country as we do not have any other country.”
He reminded the people that his government was determined to fix infrastructure in the country, adding “if we get the roads done, get the rail line done, and get other infrastructure done, we will be making progress.”
Buhari later presented Senator Ayogu Eze to the crowd as the party’s governorship candidate in the state.
Earlier, Amaechi while addressing the people, promised the revitalization of the eastern rail line.
He said the next capital project “we shall approve is Port Harcourt-Maiduguri rail line which will run from Port Harcourt to Onitsha through Awka.
“The other one will run through Port Harcourt,  Umuahia,  Enugu,  Makurdi  to  Jos.”
He said “restructuring can only be achieved if you vote for Buhari’s re-election so that an Igbo man can become the next president after Buhari.”
