Amaechi inspects Lagos-Ibadan rail project



Minister of Transportation, Mr Rotimi Amaechi, on Monday embarked on routine tour/inspection of the LagosIbadan rail project.

Amaechi was accompanied on the inspection

by the Oyo State Governor, Mr Seyi Makinde.

The minister noted that a large chunk of the rail line was in Oyo State.

The Nigerian News Agency , reports that the inspection kicked off from the Railway Mega Station in EbuteMetta to Apapa, Lagos and moved all the way to Ibadan, Oyo state.

The LagosIbadan rail project was expected to be completed in February 2021, but was recently extended to April due to some unforeseen circumstances.

However, the seven smaller stations on the LagosIbadan Standard Rail Gauge corridor are yet to be completed, an issue the minister tackled during his last routine tour of the project.
