“Move Back From Rail Tracks” – Amaechi Begs Agege Traders

“Move Back From Rail Tracks” – Amaechi Begs Agege Traders (Updated: 2 years ago)


The Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, has urged Lagosians trading along the rail line to move far away from the rail tracks as it is unsafe for them.

The former governor of Rivers State made this call after assuring Nigerians that the Lagos-Ibadan Standard Guage Rail line should be ready by December.

Amaechi was on his monthly routine inspection tour of the project, from Ebute-Meta in Lagos, in company of other management staff of the Nigerian Railway Corporation (NRC) to Ibadan, Oyo State capital.

According to the minister, a market at Agege encroached into the rail line and started giving way after sighting the rail coming.

“As for people trading along the rail line, please move far away from the tracks. It is unsafe to peddle around the tracks. We saw a market at Agege encroaching into the rail line. As soon as we start running, they have to give way,” he wrote on his Twitter after the inspection.

On what next after the project, the minister said that apart from Ibadan to Kano rail line, the ministry had sent to the cabinet for approval of the award of two railway contracts.
