The Federal Government on Wednesday assured that no region and state capital would be left out of its rail development master plan.
Statistics from the Nigerian Railway Corporation (NRC) have shown that the Abuja-Kaduna railway has carried 1.5 million passengers in 1,000 days of operation.
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.
