The Minister of Transport, Mr. Rotimi Amaechi, on Thursday met with the Lagos State Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, behind closed doors at the Lagos House in Alausa, Ikeja.

The minister, however, declined to brief journalists on the purpose of the visit.

 Amaechi, who arrived at the Lagos House at 10:55 a.m. drove himself in a black SUV and was accompanied by a four- vehicle convoy.

The closed door meeting lasted about an hour.

 But journalists in the Governor’s Office who had waited at the entrance of the meeting venue for over three hours, hoping to ask the minister some questions left the place disappointed.

 Shortly before Amaechi stepped out, the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Mr. Habib Aruna, had announced that there would be no room for question and answer session.

 Amaechi, who came out thereafter in company of the Secretary to the State Government, Mr. Tunji Bello and some of his aides, declined efforts by the journalists to speak on the purpose of the meeting.

 “I don’t want to be misquoted again,” Amaechi simply said and made his way into his car.
