Today, President Muhammadu Buhari will be in Lagos to inaugurate two projects. The first is the Mobolaji Johnson railway station in Ebutte Metta, which is part of the 157-kilometer Lagos-Ibadan standard rail project. At the Apapa Port’s Energy Nature Light Terminal, there’s also the Deep Blue Project, or the Integrated National Security and Waterways Protection Infrastructure.
Buhari will be in Lagos for the commissioning, according to Bashir Ahmad, the president’s digital and new media advisor.
“Construction began in March 2017, and test-running will begin in December 2020,” Ahmad stated on his Facebook page.
“The Ebute Metta Station, known as the Mobolaji Johnson Station, is the largest railway station in West Africa with a holding capacity of 6000 passengers.
“President Buhari is committed to developing a modern national railway network that will connect every part of Nigeria, and promote trade, travel, tourism, commerce and national integration.”
