Lagos-Ibadan Railway April Completion Date Unrealistic - Minister
The Federal Government says the Lagos-Ibadan railway project would not be completed in April this year as earlier projected.
Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Ameachi, disclosed this today while inspecting the project, alongside the Minister of State for Transportation, Gbemi Saraki, and Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo state.
Nigeria Info Correspondent Joy Kalio reports that Amaechi observed that the current state of work on the over $1.5bn project showed that the April completion date is no longer feasible.
Amaechi, Saraki, Makinde and senior officials from the Federal Ministry of Transportation, among others, inspected the Lagos-Ibadan railway from Apapa in Lagos, up to Ibadan in Oyo state.
