Transformation in the Transport section continues. Inter-connectivity between states continues, this will improve and reduce cost of transportation of goods and services. Today, we have Abuja - Kaduna, Lagos - Kano, PH - Enugu and others. More to be rolled out
“The consultants who carried out the feasibility studies have submitted their reports. Part of the report contains the involvement of the private sector to drive the project. This is because we want to develop these lin...es under public, private partnership arrangements. We have already, received a lot of expression of interests even ahead of advertisement for the purpose from various companies in the country and indeed, in other countries of the World.
“The idea is that, if we have this in place, the trains can move from Abuja to Lagos, and from Lagos to Abuja in a maximum of three hours. We are intending to compete favourably with the other transportation system in carrying passengers from Abuja to Lagos. When fully actualised, a train will leave Abuja to Lagos and Lagos to Abuja, every hour. The feasibility studies had been completed, it is not a question of story. The trains will start running within the next three years, say by 2018.”.... Minister of Transport, Senator Idris Umar
The minister explained that, the federal government had completed the rehabilitation of the Western rail lines under its revivalist strategy in the rail transport sector.
THIS WAS HOW IT ALL STARTED AND MANY NEVER BELIEVED IT... VOTE PDP!
