The Governor of Oyo State, Seyi Makinde, and Minister for Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, on Monday, inspected the ongoing Lagos-Ibadan rail line project and expressed the fears again that April deadline might not be feasible.
While giving updates on the inspection via his Twitter handle, Amaechi said: “it is not certain that the project will be ready in April as earlier planned.”
However, he assured Nigerians that efforts would be intensified to ensure the completion of the project within the stipulated time.
He tweeted, “Today (Monday), Oyo State Governor is accompanying us on the monthly inspection of work on the Lagos-Ibadan rail line. We are going the whole nine yards.
“From the mega station in Ebute Metta to Apapa and all the way to Ibadan. A large chunk of this rail line is in Oyo State.
“Looking at the state of work in Apapa, completing the project in April doesn’t seem feasible, especially the extension of the rail line to the seaport.
