Minister of Transportation Rotimi Amaechi has urged the China Civil Engineering Construction Corporation (CCECC) to speed up work on the Lagos- Ibadan rail line project.
He said that though the company had shown commitment to the project, much still needed to be done to achieve the target date of completion.
“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.”
The minister said the current pace of work may delay inauguration of the project which was slated for April.
“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.
