In a bid to ensure smooth delivery and also to
keep track of the day to day activity of the
Lagos-Ibadan Railway, the minister of
transportation, RT. Hon. Rotimi Amaechi was at
the site of the Lagos-Ibadan Railway Site. The
location is unknown but it seems to be within
Ogun State and somewhere around Iju in
Lagos.

With the way things are going, it will take a
miracle for this project to be delivered in
February as instructed by the minister as there
are still lots to be done. Take Lagos for
example, we can report that only 20% of the
project has been covered as even the head
office in Ebute Metta is still undergoing
clearing. According to Tribune Newspapers, the
minister was quoted to said, "I am not
impressed. There is nothing new. The pace is
as if nothing happened.”

However, the contractor revealed that some of
the equipment to fast-track the project were
offshore, which the minister urged them to up
their ante.

“There are mixed feelings in the sense that
getting to Abeokuta, you will see that there is
an improvement. The problem they have now
is the civil works between Agbado and Iju,
which is critical to me. The closer we are to
Lagos, the better for the project. That is what
we are battling here.

“The equipment we are talking of are not off
the shelve equipment. Getting more hands is
not the problem but getting the equipment for
more hands to use is the problem. What we
saw from Agbado to Iju is not a matter of
more hands, its a matter of equipment. These
are equipment you apply for from overseas
and they ship it down. So if the equipment
arrives, probably they will finish the job.

It will be recalled that The Lagos Ibadan
Railway project was fully funded by the Chinese
Government and there are expected to deliver
before mid-2019.

These are some of the pictures from the
inspection.
