Coronavirus Outbreak May Delay Lagos-ibadan Rail Project – Amaechi by Islie: 8:10am On Mar 06, 2020
The Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi has disclosed that the outbreak of Coronavirus may delay the completion of the Lagos-Ibadan rail project.

The minister said the delay may not be unconnected to the fact that the bulk of the workforce handling the project is stuck in China.

According to him, the Chinese government prevented some of the workers from returning to Nigeria because of the virus.

Ameachi disclosed this during a morning show monitored on television by our correspondent on Thursday.

He said: “If not for coronavirus, I would have said that we are nearly finished with the Lagos-Ibadan rail.

“The bulk of the workforce is still in China. The government of China did not allow them to return and that has delayed the work on Lagos Ibadan.”
The minister also explained that the government was still test-running the rail tracks.

He also noted that the government would deploy 10 coaches each to the Lagos-Ibadan and Abuja-Kaduna rail lines to ease passenger movement.

“We are still test-running the tracks. Commercial activities are yet to commence fully.

“To test-run the tracks, we brought in two coaches, each coach takes about 25 passengers. So the two coaches take about 50 passengers.

“We have got signals from the passengers and the engineers that the tracks are ready to run, but we need to complete communication, signaling and station buildings. Once that is done, we are good to go.

“We are bringing in 20 new coaches and four new locomotives, 10 coaches will be deployed to Abuja-Kaduna and the other 10 to Lagos-Ibadan.”

That is what happens when you are overly dependent on everything foreign.

With the large population we have in Nigeria, yet we can't upskill and deliver. Do the chinese have 2 heads? Useless leaders. Mschew.

We have engineers in Nigeria.

We have many universities that churn out engineers yearly.

We have many professors of engineering.

But let's wait for the Chinese stuck in China before our rail project can be finished.

Yea yea I know, they are financing it, blah blah blah...warever...
