When Will We Stop Celebrating Mediocrity? by PlutoLA(m): 8:01am On Jan 31, 2015
I often hear many pro-GEJ ppl listing revamping of railway in some parts of the country as one of his achievements.
Did you know....

Nigeria and Mexico approached China for credit facility to rebuild their railway systems (and other infrastructure). They both got the credits. Look at what each country did with the money.

If Mexico could afford to install bullet trains and Nigeria was loaned $12billion compared to the$3.75 billion Mexico was loaned,why do our trains look like smth from the 90s? And why are we celebrating this?

We are used to it bro. That's our theme. The amount Kenya used in building one of the best airports in Africa is a lil diff from what we r used to refurbish(mainly painting) our MMIA. Govt has bn giving money to dantata and co since '99 for lokoja - abuja road, I rili dnt knw what they r trying to build there for so long...

Guy I guess you dont remember. It was back in 2013. As a matter of fact Mexico was loaned $3.75billion (at first they cancelled the contract but later renewed it) and Nigeria was given $12billion dollars,both for purpose of building railway systems. Now both have completed the projects and the pic us up there for you to compare. You could google it for more proof

I am not asking for bullet trains. All I'm saying is with that much money,the government should be able to procure better looking trains,not the ones similar to wat my father rode in his time

But you forget to also mention a part of Mexico been a nuclear energy country that has two nuclear reactors; which gives them the capacity to power modern trains that require high power voltage.

The Mexico nuclear program is dated back to 1958, so when comparing this scenario of Mexican trains with that of Nigeria, we shouldn't forget also to put the power generation capacity into contest.
