Amaechi made the comment while speaking to journalists after an interactive session with Ports Concessionaries in Lagos, Daily Trust reports.

“After all, we are barely eight months in office. What we crave of Nigerians is to be patient with us as there are silver linings in the horizon,” the minister said.

Amaechi had reportedly said during the meeting that the Federal Government was unhappy with the way the country’s ports were being run.

“Almost ten years after NPA surrendered its cargo handling functions to private terminal operators, there seems not to be any remarkable difference even though it is a known fact that the maritime sector generates a lot of money every year without a corresponding contribution to the budget,” he said.

Amaechi, a former governor of Rivers State, was sworn in as transport minister on November 11, 2015.
