President Muhammadu Buhari has arrived Lagos for the commissioning of some capital projects in the state.
He was accompanied by the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila and they were both received by the Governor of Lagos state, Babajide Sanwo-Olu and other government officials.
The President is expected to commission the 156km Lagos—Ibadan standard gauge railway line in Lagos. It is the first double-track standard gauge rail in West Africa.
It is also the first Nigerian railway line project to be started and completed by the same administration since Nigeria gained independence in 1960.
The project construction began in March 2017 and the test-running process commenced in December 2020.
The Ebute Metta Station, known as the Mobolaji Johnson Station, is the largest railway station in West Africa with a holding capacity of 6000 passengers.
