To maximize trade and social engagements, which rail transport services can engender, do you know that the Buhari administration has concluded arrangements to extend the Itakpe – Ajaokuta – Warri rail line to Abuja?
This was disclosed by the Minister of Transportation, Alhaji Muazu Sambo during an intercative media session in Abuja on Monday, November 7, 2022 wherein he said all the necessary funding arrangements for the project has been concluded, thus paving the way for its immediate commencement.
Being a major cargo transport route, the Itakpe – Ajaokuta – Warri rail line will surely advance the course of movement of large consignments of agricultural and industrial goods between the North and South when it is eventually connected to Abuja. And this will be a big win for Nigeria’s economic development.
Yes, Nigeria is on track!
