That's what the useless Obasanjo could not do for the SW people....... I disdain obasanjo for his hypocrite and stupidity. Buhari must return and jail him.

Progress.
The good thing about this project in addition to evacuating the congested port and easing travel to and from Lagos, is that it's sited in a region where development is highly appreciated and always rewarded with votes in return.

Not those who will swear with their lives that no such project is going on, insisting they just passed there recently and no such project exists. cheesy
South West is 4+4


As an individual, there is hardly any government project of importance that I don't go to the project site to see things for myself.

It is a big shame when you see youths deny the existence of these projects that are right under their noses due to hate and bigotry.

I must commend OP for being a true Nigerian. It's Nigeria's project and there is nothing wrong with visiting to see things for yourself instead of going on social media to remark like slaves of politicians and aliens.

For instance, the Warri-Benin-Ore-Omotoso-Ajebamidele-Sagamu-Lagos road has never been this good over the past 20 years. While construction is ongoing and progressing well, comprehensive remediation works had been done to fill dangerous potholes. This is really commendable.

Everybody shld go to the poll and choose their leader in 2019.. Whatever happens eventually, we accept it? Sell your vote to highest bidder, enjoy the moment.. But remember, their is a price to pay
Some of the prices we are paying for our indecision in 2015 includes:
Recession

Insecurity
Kidnapping
Bandits
Fulani Herdsmen
Marginalization
Unemployment
Poor education
Bad governance
Harassment
Lawlessness
Unlawful detention
Nepotism
Corruption

Lagos Ibadan expressway and Lagos-Ibadan railway are core projects that must be completed in the SW The SW cant afford to let these projects stalled or uncompleted due to a change in government. Wisdom is profitable to direct. Self interest is key in politics. APC must win the presidential election massively in the SW.

Kudos to you. That's how our attitudes towards governance should be.
Hopefully others learn as well.

If you are from the SW and you vote any other than Buhari, you are a dunce. Seriously: lag - ibd rail, support for Dangote refinery, lag - one expressway and the port access roads are for real. Forget the ignoramus they are building up who says he will sell NNPC, enrich his friends but is too afraid to face Oby Ezekwesili without Buhari present .

AutoReportNG:
The Lagos-Ibadan Railway is one project that the South Westerners can't wait to see come into actualization. It is a project that cut across three states namely, Lagos, Ogun and Oyo states. The project will help to curtail the traffic and also make life easier for Nigeria. People in Ibadan, Abeokuta can get to Lagos in minutes and return to their home without the hassle and struggle of traffic. The minister of transportation has been following the project like his pet project, according to him, he can't wait to see the vision and the project become a reality.

Just as the minister for transportation, Mr. Rotimi Ameachi has mandated Nigerians not to "siddon look" and read all news on dailies and social media, he said he has mandated all securities around all construction sites to allow Nigerians to take pictures and verify all constructions across the country.

People seem to be holding him for his word as a man named Otunba Sula has gone to verify the Lagos-Ibadan railway Abeokuta Station at Oke Mosan. According to him, he went to check things for himself and also give a first-hand reportage of the real issue, read his account below...

So I visited this site just this morning (Sunday) and it was busy as usual. The scale of work is awesome and there's huge progress made already.



I wanted to see the work done on the Lagos/Ibadan rail around Abeokuta Station for myself so I paid a visit.

I caught soldier units all around, all I had to do was courtesy & smile at them and they allowed me through.

Apparently, they don't allow just anyone in to not disturb the flow.



It's incredible how they've surmounted the challenge (in little time) of building a tunnel for a rail path under the Abeokuta-Sagamu dual carriage highway.

Not so far from that tunnel is a huge bridge (actively undergoing construction) and an even smaller tunnel.



I'm uncertain what this huge 'machinery thaing' does exactly but I bet it has something to do with laying rail tracks (perhaps specifically over bridges). I've seen a smaller one along this same rail path over the old Abk/Ibd express road.



And here comes the tracks.. It's a long way down... My unprofessional phone camera could only try.





I must have walked no less than 2 kilometers along the rail path from the highway.
