Contractors Successfully Completed 123 Km Of 156 Km Lagos-ibadan Rail Project by Ravon: 8:16am On May 11
The Minister of Transportation, Mr Rotimi Amaechi, said 123km of the 156 km stretch of the Lagos-Ibadan standard gauge rail project has been completed.

Amaechi made the disclosure on Friday during his routine inspection of the project along Kila, Olodo, Ilugun corridor of the track in the outskirts of Ogun State.

He said the project had been completed up to Kila village, a settlement on the outskirts of Ogun towards Oyo State.

“We are already moving towards Ibadan, the track laying is now in Kila, a town on the outskirts of Ogun.
“In less than a month from now, we should be in Ibadan with the rate the work is going,” he said.

The Minister also said that he would inspect the Apapa port and its connection to the standard gauge rail to address the challenges of traffic gridlock in the area.

“We will be visiting the ports tomorrow to address some of the issues we have there.

“It’s imperative that the Apapa ports must be connected to the standard gauge rail to ensure proper movement of cargoes,” Amaechi said.

The source reports that the minister had during one of his inspection tours on April 8 blamed the China Civil Engineering Construction Corporation (CCECC) for the slow pace of work in the ongoing project.

According to him, the Federal Government plans to commence transportation of cargoes from the seaports through the standard rail gauge by December.

All hail Amaechi. All hail Buhari. I live around the railway corner, I see Amaechi more than I see my next door neighbor. He is always inspecting.

Politics is investment, you invest your votes and you reap infrastructure and appointments. South-West gave Buhari 60% votes n 2015 and 55% votes in 2019. Now we are reaping our investment. The North gave Buhari 70% votes in 2015 and 75% in 2019. The North is reaping its investment. South-South and South-East gave Buhari about 5% votes in 2015 and 2019. The SS and SE too are reaping their investment.

I'll also tell Fashola to finish work on the 2nd Niger bridge.
