The free-ride according to the minister is expect to last for a period of two months.
In his words, Amaechi said; “Arrangement was being put in place for passengers to enjoy free train for about two months between February and March,”
“The level of work would have been faster in Lagos but due to some challenges of right of way in the city,” he added.
In a similar development, Amaechi also revealed the plans of the vice president, Yemi Osinbajo for the Lagos-Ibadan rail project.
Amaechi revealed that Osinbajo would test-run the ongoing construction of the Lagos-Ibadan Gauge railway on Wednesday, February 6.
