According to Rotimi Amaechi, “Where we have challenge now is at Ibadan. The contractor said they have to blast through rocks, which might slow down the pace of work there. They have already started doing that.


“However, come 6th of February, 2019, the Vice President, Prof Yemi Oshinbajo will take a train ride from Iju to Abeokuta to flag-off that segment of the Lagos-Ibadan rail project. Except if it clashes with his protocol arrangement, which I am yet to confirm, then he will be here that day.

“After the flag-off by the Vice President, we will run free train rides from Iju to Abeokuta for two months. The project is about 70% completed.”

On the issue of litigations confronting the project, the Minister explained that only from Lagos to Iju are there issues of litigations.


“From Iju to Abeokuta, we don’t have any issue of litigations. It is only from Lagos that such exist, and the Nigerian Railway Corporation (NRC) will sort their compensation soon,” he said
