The Nigerian minister of transportation and former Governor of Rivers state, Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi has assured Nigerians that the work on the Lagos-Ibadan railway is close to completion and would soon be completed.
Upon gross inspection and evaluation, the minister directed the China Civil Engineering Construction Cooperation, CCECC to speed up the project. According to him, their target is to finish up the job before or by the end of April.

In his words:
"Most of the things that are left are minor, and cannot hinder the conveyance of goods. The engineering cooperation has promised to finish it.
I trust them, but I want them to reiterate that. I reaffirmed that they'd continue to work in accordance with our design specifications.
When we start the Ibadan-Kano rails, it'd be a different ball entirely, as everyone would stick to plans and there'd be no deviations.
From the looks of things, we can't ask the President to commission this, but once we give the CCECC a definite time, every other thing will fall in place."
