Saraki Wants to Rubbish Amaechi with Lagos/Calabar Rail for Not Begging Buhari to Stop His Trial

According to Vanguard, it was gathered from insider sources that besides geopolitical interests, the removal of the Lagos to Calabar rail project from 2016 Budget was done partly to spite the minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, who was the chairman of Governors Forum.
Why go after Amaechi? The believev in Bukola Saraki's camp is that Amaechi distanced himself from the embattled senate president who's his former colleague and others like Senator Danjuma Goje. 
Saraki thought Amaechi, due to his closeness with President Buhari and APC National Leader, Bola Tinubu, would help him beg both men to stylishly stop his corruption trial at the CCT.
“Amaechi was told by associates in the Senate that Goje was not happy with him [because] he had teamed up with the Buhari people against his former colleagues in the Governors’ Forum,” a Presidency official conversant with the issue said. 

The source further revealed that on account of the information, Amaechi had to visit Goje to solicit his help on the passage of the budget proposals of the Ministry of Transportation. 
A presidency official stated that the Calabar-Lagos railway project alongside the Lagos – Kano rail project was included in the draft budget of the Ministry submitted to the Budget Office.

The official challenged the House of Representatives and the Senate to produce the report of their respective submissions to the NASS if they insist that the project was not included in the budget.
