National Media Tour of Projects In FCT-DAY 1(pics) by Countryman93: 6:55pm On Sep 20, 2012
The National Good Governance Tour of Projects started with the FCT today. The team visited various projects executed by President Jonathan under the Ministry of Federal capital Territory so far. Projects visited include the ongoing construction of Abuja Mass Transit Railway project, Abuja Airport Road 10 lane project, the National Space Research and Development Centre, New passport office, a rolling stock depot and maintenance base for the Abuja Metropolitan Railway project at Idu Abuja.

The pictures below show the on going Abuja mass transit rail project which will serve as a big accelerating engine that will effectively promote the development of the national economy. The organization and management of the metro operation is systematically planned from Abuja Station to Kubwa Station. A rolling stock depot and maintenance base is designed to Idu Site, providing comprehensive maintenance services to all railway lines within Abuja area. It covers 30.6hectare floor space and 77,297msqr. building area including an operation control centre

Wow! Nice projects. If only they can successfully complete it in record time, it will ease the transportation problems of Abuja residents.
Countries all over the world have efficient railway system. The military just came in and ravaged whatever was left of the railways bequeathed to us by our colonial masters. I commend Jonathan for paying serious attention to this all important mode of transport

I heard the Abuja Mass Transit rail stuff is being financed through a loan. How true is it?

ubandire: I heard the Abuja Mass Transit rail stuff is being financed through a loan. How true is it?

OGA, the railway was awarded before GEJ came in to office and was abandoned. However, GEJ came in and decided to revive all railway tracks which were abandoned due to paucity of funds.
This was pursuant to the realization of his transformation agenda and campaign promises.
He started by awarding phase 11 of Lagos-Kano railway to Chinese construction giants CCCEC. He also started refurbiishing the Minna-Kaduna line which was successfully test runned last month and aired live on AIT. There is one that runs through Itakpe-Kogi. I have forgotten the exact route.

The Abuja metropolitan railway is one of those undergoing serious refurbishment by this government. It has reached 35% completion stage. FG has paid about 22m dollars to the contractors handling the project. The project is expected to cost 800 million dollars.
Recently, the FG secured a NEXIM bank loan of 500m to finance the project. The facility will go a long way in completing the railway.

There had better be more info than this. I am actually pro using the ministry of information as a sort of propaganda tool for informing citizens of what the government has achieved or is doing, if not I really don't get the point of that ministry. What is the point in keeping people in the dark? Let us know what is being done on all levels and blow the government's trumpet based on achievements so we can judge for ourselves if it is worthwhile and if the government is working or not, and give informed feedback as citizens.

The ministry should have a better organised and continuously updated website of what other ministries and itself as well as federal government are achieving backed with data, images, project information, progress updates, etc. If not, again, what is the point of having a ministry of information?

What I don't like though, is the idea of Jonathan doing this himself or getting involved - if he is. He is not campaigning for presidency, he won already, now we want to be hearing about results.

Site needs improvement and more publicity - http://fmi.gov.ng/

This is great! The FG is really doing their best to ameliorate the transport sector. Those pics are quite convincing that work is in progress.

Splendid and I must confess I am genuinely impressed by the steps of transformation taken by the GEJ Administration. However, more needs to be done to win the support of and affection of Nigerians if he is to win a 2nd term in office.

Nice one,I sincerely believe that this media tour could be an eye opener,at least now we can get to see the projects for real and not just talk talk talk.by the way the railway tracks really look sturdy and standard,am looking forward to the completion,in a populated metropolis like Abuja,rail transport will be far much faster and favourable for people to get to work,i hope the route it covers will pass through town.But the question I keep on asking myself is,the Military and their engineers that designed and built Abuja,were they so dumb as to forget to include rail transport in their modern city plans,up GEJ joor.At least with this loan secured from the Chinese I really believe they Intend to see this project completed.

It is one thing to start a project, it's another to complete. I will not be in a haste to celebrate this until it is completed.
Congrats to Maku though for drawing our attention to projects in progress.

Abuja railway system has been in Abuja Masterplan ever since. It has it's tracks well cut out. It was not Jonathan that designed Abuja Masterplan neither the railways. What this regime has succeeded in doing is the restoration of abandoned jobs. Anyway, they deserve commendation too. It is not easy to continue with some big projects started by previous governments.

But seriously this govt is working. Let's shun sentiments. In every area of governance they hve something going on. I feel the subsidy withdrawal thing gave them a bad name. The policy was just ill timed. Aside the subsidy thing, they look impressive. Railways that have been forgotten for ages are being revived. See new metro line tracks under construction. Power is a bit stable more than before. GEJ might just be it finally

That cannot enforce traffic rules(just vist wuse and see the madness going on there everyday. Commercial bus drivers park in the middle of the road right before policemen who watch helplessly as these rascals block other road users as they call passengers)

someone called me a pessimist.......but i dare ask why would you take credit for work you did not start or initiate orevn finance, someone here just said the railway project by CCECC was abandonded...and revieved by this admistration thats a BIG LIE

Let the admistration continue to monitor and ensure that this projects are completed but let no one come here and lie about what did not happen.
