Bro,
You are a PIPE dreamer to think Buhari will build this line. Just think for a moment how much it will take to construct a railway bridge over the waters from PH to Bonny. Then from PH to Maiduguri. Yet the total amount they hope to borrow is $3 billion dollars? grin grin grin grin

Lol... this is just 2023 election money that they are spoiling for how to get Chinese loans for railway and simply use it for elections.

Recall when Buhari removed a whopping $1 billion dollars from the foreign reserve prior to 2019 presidential elections claiming he would fund the military with state of the art weapons to win Boko Haram. Ask yourself where is that money or the weapons? Answer: The money was all diverted to fund the 2019 re-election! As they will do with this $3 billion grin
the "Bony" own na him shock me ooo grin

To be commissioned in the year of Satan 2060... Politics! Just trying to divert attention from the fact that his administration has more projects going on in Nigeria republic than in the east from where the financing is coming from...
Which financing is coming from the east?

Funds from the sale of 1 gallon of oil gotten in Abia and Imo?

Iffa tear you slap, efulefu.

Imo and abia are producing more than your state, ofcourse you lot control the NNPC and will be juggling numbers to sooth your warped narrative.. Igbo speaking parts of Rivers produce massively too, most of the onshore oil produced in Rivers State... Gas is the future! South east has the biggest gas reserves around!! You are already positioning yourselves to claim that too... It's only Lagos that wanted to become an oil producing state with a stolen jug of crude.. oil thieves everywhere

But expanding this railway of a thing to Niger Republic is something else

What is wrong in expanding rail lines to neighboring countries like other developed countries are doing?

Ameachi is actually trying.

before you quote me please answer this, Apart from joining APC(Hausa party) and dinning with "NORTHERS", tell me why you hate AMAECHI?

Compare his Admiration to Wike's Administration
Compare him with every other Minister in "Buhari's Cabinet"

Calling APC "Hausa party or someone dining with Northerners" is unaccommodating statement and has no place in 21st century. I closely observed that the extreme hatred of SS & SE people for APC and PMB has nothing to do with human conscience or party affiliation but extreme hatred for North/Islam/Hausa-Fulani who are not the cause of your mayhem. I've learnt that this hatred is propagated from Politicians and religious groups which have no fundamental basis. The hate doesn't stop only on PMB but extended to Yoruba who gave cause for PMB's triumph. I've never seen this kind of hatred even in adventure films.
GEJ got the required votes percentage in almost all northern states which took him to victory in 2011, he failed woefully the following election because of the terrible state of security in the North in 2015. PDP has been in power since 1999-2015 but has nothing concrete to show in those 2 regions which will convince them to stay tune wth the party but they're brainwashed with ethno-religious bigotry because they're neither accommodative nor cosmopolite enough to live with others in diversity. They brainwashed them to think that PDP is a Christian party but in reality Northerners have total control of the party with their slaves being instructed to answer to their plan. I bet u if anybody from SS or SE think PDP belongs to them a Northerner is going to run under PDP come 2023 and the slaves will campaign for him. The way u mock SW ppl for being slave jst because they support PMB we'll come here & revenge, and I assure u Northern APC Politicians despite all these formalities will support SW Presidency under APC 2023.

That line stops at the Nigerian border and does not go a single inch into Niger Republic.

Stop following online disinformation from malcontents.

Unfair criticism. The Port Harcourt - Maiduguri line is being rehabilitated, as there is actually an old line there, albeit narrow gauge. The Lagos-Ibadan line etc are brand new lines, and so had to be built standard gauge in line with modern convention.

Narrow gauge lines are still operated all over the world, and it would have constituted gross wastage of public funds to abandon the current Port-Harcourt - Maiduguri line to build a standard gauge line at perhaps triple the price.

In fact, ''In some countries, narrow gauge is the standard; Japan, Indonesia, Taiwan, New Zealand, South Africa, and the Australian states of Queensland, Western Australia and Tasmania..''

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Narrow-gauge_railway

Why are they replacing Western Line narrow gauge from Lagos to Kano via Ibadan; and rehabilitating the Eastern Line narrow gauge from PH to Maiduguri via Enugu?. To even make matter worse its single line

Amaechi I am not impressed at all. Taking us back to 1945

The countries you mentioned using narrow gauge built them in 20th century and none of them will build narrow gauge in this 21st century

Do you know that from ABA to PH on narrow guage, a distance of 50km takes 6 hours at present and you want build a modern economy, except if it's for cargo only as PH to Maiduguri will take minimum of 5 days

I see now, you have been busy posting false information on this topic all day, not sure what is your motivation.

If narrow gauge is acceptable, why is government borrowing billions to update the Lagos Kano to standard gauge?
Why not complete the national lines from east to north, and west to north before going to extend the railway line into Niger republic?

Answer the question, or simply shut it!

Good point.
Also, have you wondered why the projects in the east are PPP, 'costing the government no money ', but guaranteed to enslave the people for years to come.
Remember, despite all the bridges built in Lagos and other parts of Nigeria, the second Niger bridge at Onitsha is probably the only PPP.
