Without any iota of doubt, the Nigerian transport system will always draw a long debate and generate different opinions among users, especially those who see the system as an irony of what a modern transport institution should be.
The minister of transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, has said that the country needs around $40 billion to complete its rail project, while adding that any ministerial change will not affect the project.
The minister of transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, has received Joe Ghartey, his Ghanaian counterpart in charge of railways development, who is on a visit to Nigeria to inspect the federal government's construction works.
Rotimi Ameachi, Alake of Egbaland, Oba Adedotun Aremu Gbadebo, and other dignitaries, joined Ogun state governor Ibikunle Amosun to ride on the newly constructed Standard Guage rail line, from Lagos to Abeokuta.
Fidet Okhira, the managing director of the Nigeria Railway Corporation (NRC) said the Lagos-Abeokuta part of the Lagos-Ibadan railway will be finished in 10 days, and the whole construction of the rail will be ready in February.
The Nigerian Railway Corporation has said the Abuja-Kaduna train service generated over 1.152,000,000 between 2017 and 2018. The disclosure was made by the Managing Director (MD) of the corporation, Fidet Okhiria.
