Lagos-Ibadan Railway: 2018 No Longer Feasible, Fixes New Date For Completion by AutoReportNG: 6:39am On Dec 06
Mr. Rotimi Amaechi, the minister of transportation, has directed the Chinese Civil Engineering Company (CCECC), the contractors handling the Lagos-Ibadan railway, to ensure that the train becomes operational before February 2019.

Amaechi said this on Tuesday during the monthly inspection of the Lagos-Ibadan rail project in Papalanto, Ogun state.

He said the contractors must ensure that the tracks and bridges were completed and the train must make transport sense.

“There must be train on the tracks before February. It doesn’t matter when, but there must be a train on the track that makes transport sense,” the minister said.

“What I mean by transport sense is that it must be able to carry passengers from Abeokuta if not up-to Ibadan, we have agreed that everybody must work towards it.

“The next inspection is on Dec. 18 and that is two weeks from now.

“Before we used to have it once in a month but now it will be twice in a month to ensure that, that is achieved.

“So, we will be back here to ensure that what we have agreed to today will be implemented. The work is progressing rapidly, the weather is no longer an issue, the elements were an issue before but now it is no longer an issue.

“You should know that on the 18th, we would have started campaign, the president has emphasised that we must build infrastructure.”

He said out of 10 bridges, only two was uncompleted, adding that before the next inspection on December 18, one must be completed.

Amaechi said his role as director-general of President Muhammadu Buhari’s campaign won’t affect his work.

He said the president was determined to build infrastructure, stating that the monthly inspection would take place every two weeks to ensure progress on the project.

This news just made someone happy. Some people come here every day in search of stories that they can use to discredit this government, no matter how mundane, including Jubrilinisation. Fact is, the project is ongoing, and some of us are excited beyond words about the prospects. Long live Nigeria!

Amaechi should allow this contractor to do a solid job, the way they are forcing him to complete before the elections so as to use the project for political capital could be dangerous for the users, they should allow the cement to cure and set sad
