60 Lagos-Ibadan Railway project Workers Infected With COVID-19 – FG (Updated: 1 year ago)


Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi has revealed that about  60 Lagos-Ibadan railway project workers have contracted COVID-19 while on the line of duty. 

The Minister who stated that the railway project would have been inaugurated in the first week of this month if not for the rise in the second COVID-19 wave, added that it was important to reschedule the proposed January 2021 inauguration date for the facility even though no life has been lost. 

The Ex – Rivers state governor said 

“First let us admit that over 60% of our staff, not the Ministry of Transportation staff, but the staff working on the rail project, have been infected by COVID-19.

“Luckily nobody has died and I pray nobody will die, but you see the kind of sacrifice everybody is making to get the rail to function.

“There are people sacrificing their lives to get to that point. We are of the view when we made that decision that Nigerians will not say 2020 was a bad year.

“As far as we are concerned, we need to learn how to live with COVID-19 and I really want to congratulate those who achieved that feat.” 

 He further said the inauguration of the project would be dependent on when there is a reduction of new cases in the country.
