Lagos-Calabar Railway Project To Commence Before 2021 Ends - Amaechi


 

Nigeria's Minister of Transportation Rotimi Chibuike Amaechi has hinted that work on the proposed Lagos-Calabar railway will commence before the end of the year, 2021.


Mr. Amaechi made this on Friday in Calabar while delivering the 34th Convocation Lecture of the University of Calabar with the topic: “The National Question and the Challenges of Nationhood in Nigeria”.

The minister said that the President Muhammadu Buhari led administration was committed to massive infrastructural development across the country.


“In a few weeks from now, we are going to sign the loan agreement for the commencement of that project and before the end of the year, contractors will move to site.


“The President Buhari administration has embarked on railway construction and rehabilitation from Port Harcourt to Maiduguri, from Ibadan to Kano and from Abuja to Kauran Namoda among others.

“We are also renewing the Lord Lugard railway line that has been out of effective service for decades,” he said.
