The Federal Ministry of Transportation is yet to respond to the controversy surrounding its Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with an obscure British company, MPH Rail Development (UK) Limited, for the development of the Port Harcourt–Enugu–Calabar–Abuja Standard Gauge Rail Line.


Investigations reveal that MPH Rail Development, formerly known as Mordecai JB Limited, was incorporated in September 2019 and changed its name in 2021.


The company, led by Andrew Jason, has less than 1000 pounds in share value but appointed Dacosta Osinowo, former Lagos State House of Assembly Speaker Adeyemi Ikuforiji, and two other Nigerians as directors in 2023 and 2024, despite their apparent lack of experience in handling projects of this magnitude.


Social media platforms have been flooded with discussions questioning the government’s decision to entrust such a significant infrastructure project to a company with limited resources and no proven expertise in the rail sector.


Attempts to get a reaction from the Ministry have been unsuccessful, as they have not responded to messages
