Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that following the outbreak of coronavirus and it's spread across the world, Nigeria is set to feel a major impact on key projects being executed by contractors from China.
As a result of this, Rotimi Amaechi, the minister of transportation, revealed that the outbreak may delay the Lagos-Ibadan rail completion.
The minister on Thursday, March 5, said the delay in the rail project may not be unconnected to the fact that a high percentage of the workforce are trapped in China.
The China Civil Engineering and Construction Company (CCECC) is handling the execution of the Lagos-Ibadan double gauge rail line.
Amaechi noted that the Chinese government because of the virus prevented some of the workers from returning to Nigeria which has delayed work on the project.
