You don't get it.. I'm not even an APC apologist. But judging by the pattern of atiku's online campaign, he probably hired 'Cambridge analytica' the same company Gej hired in 2015 and helped massively push that 'blood and baboon' quote and pictures everywhere on the internet to try and discredit Buhari all to no avail.

This guys are not cheap at all, I mean they easily will cost atiku tens of million of $$$ and while they are obviously good at what they do as they helped Donald trump and brexiteers win massively, their methods of alienate, sow discord, spread hate and consolidate certain voter base simply cannot win federal elections in Nigeria!

They failed with Jonathan and will drive atiku to failure as well if he doesn't do something soon and fast! I no even pity Atiku, everyone around him are super vultures but the money he has is mostly on the sweat and blood of Nigerians anyways.. So waste away! grin

Burst my brain again please ! Hifive!

See some fools here typing from their papa's compound saying is good development, am sure most of u don't knw the thousands of truck that always ply that road every hours,Ameachi now expect my father with 8 trucks to sell it and start another business. It can and never work,thunder fire APC....

Wat will happen to dangote trucks that always go to Lagos to transport raw material from Apapa port to various states where is company is located ??Highest tax payers in the Land..

Wat will happen to NUPENG,fuel tankers which happens to be the most effective union in Nigeria, u expect those tankers owner to be selling cloths....

It will just never work, as far as Lagos and Ogun is concern and exist within Nigeria, nothing can stop movement of trucks,fashola did it Nd doesn't work for one week....Just one week strike from NUPENG (tankers owner) will lead to scarcity of petrol across the nation Nd will reset dea brain. ....

So because of ur fathers 8 trucks Nigeria should not move forward abi, your family of less than 10 is more important than over 200 million Nigerians...sure, we must move further, fuel must be transported by train, if you like become a criminal & blow up rail ways with ur NUPENG tanker friends, the police will surely give you the messy end you deserve.


Some Nigerians are just selfishly & shamelessly wicked

Good, but will APC be in power by July 2019? Surely if it will be commissioned it will be by another party. One day after 29th May 2019, Nigeria will experience the next level of suffering and poverty if APC remain.

I had detailed also why rail can't work in Nigeria:
- the dispatch operator doesn't want to work and wants to go to UK Canada usa so the train will be delayed or cancelled.
- the track maintenance staff are non chalet so grass grows on the tracks causing a derailment. S/he too wants to go UK us Canada Australia so doesn't care about the job.
- then the bribery: if u want it cargo to load first u pay more.
- and then tendency to make simple things complex.

Look at banks. none of the banks in nigeria have a proper recruitment system except first bank. Basic things aren't there.

Have u seen how ppl drive in Nigeria? It's not bad roads that cause accidents it's savage driving.

A ppl who refuse to take responsibility for national development but always blaming the presidency as if the presidency is the rough driver or the tout or the wicked man seeking bribe....
The whole system is messed up.

Well, it isn't totally a bad idea but given the fact that Nigeria rail system is a tree network, instead of a matrix or rail lines, areas that do not have functional rail lines would suffer. For example, Onitsha, a commercial centre does not have any rail line crossing it. Will traders go as far as port Harcourt to trans load their goods to trucks?


This should not be for every location.

I'm sure they have thought about it.

They can move from Sagamu down to Lagos.

Upwards is a no go area.

This will be wonderful , if only the rail are working effectively . It will reduce the burden on our road as well as reduce the rate of accident on that road .
Exactly..A good move in the right direction.If APC had focus on this developmental issues instead of using the whole of 3 years on blame game , I am sure they wont have to work three times extra to convince Nigerians to re-elect them...hmmmm!! now election is just by the corner and they are running here and there to get things in place for them to be re-elected and after the election..they will relax and the blame game resumes.

I am very sure this is dead on arrival. The way Nigeria is structured interms of transportation today, Lagos Ibadan express road seems to be the most important road in the country but can you see how the bombshell is dropped on us. A lot of damage will be done to the economy of this country by the bottleneck that will be created by this 'VERY GOOD PROJECT". Just putting up infrastructure which is just an avenue for those close to the project to smile to the bank is not the solution to our problem.

For a project like this, every stakeholder should be aware and should by now have a comprehensive plan targeted at reviewing the impact and opportunities on their activities. Nations don't just become great, it is a lot and lots of work. Looks more like this announcement is just for political reasons.

well deserved!!!.
it's alarming that we keep complaining of how bad the nation is, no examining how worse each and everyone of us is, i swear patriotism has gone to river to drown in this nation. No one is patriotic, no one is ready to sacrifice and everyone just wanna satisfy his selfish interest. with that type of mindset i fear for the future of the nation.

It appears you lack comprehension ability but let me not blame you because you are one of the victims of the faulty system.
Could you point at where I condenmed the policy? Look dude! My emphasis was on how long it has taken them to consider such a policy after many lives have gone.
Next time do not rush to comment without comprehension.
I am in total support of the policy but it is painful that a black man does not pay attention to things that matter.
Don't be surprised that the policy will never be implemented, it's a mere talk.
Do you know that the likes of Atiku and Buhari have become the best our major political parties can project as their flagbearer because we are cursed?

.Na so PHCN no take work till today because of sabotage from Generator sellers and distributors of PMS so that these buys can continue to feed thier families..Abi?....for development to take place some businesses will have to go for the general good of the country..when that time come them go find alternative means to survive.ur papa as well as the the Dangote truck drivers will find alternative to survive. Just like NITEL whose workers had to pay the ultimate price for the Telecommuication to strive..now you are using GSM and can load ur fone with data isn't it? there must be a way at the end of the day for everyone.But that Nigerian should continue in this way just becos few are using it to put food on thier table..that i strongly object to,...for proogress to take place some people will have to be affected.even in war.. people use that terrible situation to thier benefit and feel sad when the war is over..so let us progressive mind for ones
