Minister of transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, has defended the planned construction of Transportation University in Daura, Katsina State.

Daura is the hometown of President Muhammadu Buhari and the construction of the N18 billion project is scheduled to start in 2019, reports TheCable

Addressing journalists in Abuja on Tuesday, the Minister said that Daura is also part of Nigeria and should not be deprived of projects because it’s Buhari’s hometown.

“The president did not even know I will choose Daura . The reason, Daura is part of Nigeria . If we sited it in Sokoto, it is still part of Nigeria . So why is the emphasis on Daura ?” he asked.

“If I had chosen Port Harcourt , Enugu, that is the same way I would have chosen Daura. The people of Daura should not be deprived of these things because the president is from there.”
