President Muhammadu Buhari will tomorrow commission the 156km Lagos—Ibadan standard gauge railway line.
The rail line is the first double-track standard gauge rail in West Africa, and the first Nigerian railway line to be started and completed by the same administration, since 1960.
The construction started in March 2017, and test-running commenced in December 2020.
The Mobolaji Johnson Station in Ebute Metta is the largest railway station in West Africa with a holding capacity of 6000 passengers.
President Buhari is committed to developing a modern national railway network that will connect every part of Nigeria, and promote trade, travel, tourism, commerce and national integration.
