The Minister of Transportation, Chibuike Amaechi, has assured Nigerians that the work on the Ibadan-Kano railway would be completed in no time.
Upon inspection of the project, he directed the China Civil Engineering Construction Corporation (CCECC) to speed up work on the Lagos-Ibadan rail line project. According to him, the company is dedicated to finishing the project by the end of April.

He said: “Most of the things remaining are minor and it cannot delay the movement of goods. They have promised to finish by the end of the month. I believe them but I want them to reiterate that. I reaffirmed that the contractors must continue to work in accordance with our design specifications.”
“When we start the Ibadan-Kano rail, it will be a different ball game and we will ensure they keep to plan. For Ibadan to Kano, everybody must go according to work plan both in terms of payment, construction, inspection and everything.”
“If you look at the level of work we cannot ask the president to commission this, but ones we give CCECC definite time I know they will speed up. There are some minor things they still need to put in place but it’s taking them time to do that. Some of those things should not take more than a day or two to put in place; so am not so worried.
