The Lagos-Ibadan rail could be happening faster than many assumed think, as a new video showing the train in action as emerged online.
In a video shared by the senior special assistant to President Muhammadu Behari on new media, Tolu Ogunlesi, the train could be seen leaving Ebute Metta in Lagos for Ibadan.
It is expected that the new development would end traffic to the Lagos-Ibadan expressway traffic, which was signature traffic problem of the city.
Another clip showed the station under construction.
In the third clip he shared, the train could be seen moving as it cruised without the limitation of the Lagos traffic.
Many people had so much to say about the development as some commented on how the development will solve accommodation problems in Lagos.
Watch the video in the post below:

Honestly once this starts working fully, so many people having accomadtions in Lagos will leave Lagos for Ibadan, more business opportunities will come up in Ibadan, guess traffic too might reduce, besides why drive down to lagos from Ibadan when I can take a train and beat time.
