THE Federal Government has said all the thirty-six state that make up the federation of Nigeria will soon be connected to rail services soon to enhance commercial activities, the Minister of Transportation, Mr Rotimi Amaechi,  revealed.
He made the disclosure while speaking to journalists after the inspection of the ongoing Lagos-Ibadan Standard Gauge Railway Line in Lagos on Tuesday.
He said: “As you know, every month we must meet to review the challenges that we have encountered from the project and the achievements the contractor have made.
“So far; today we have assessed them, and we are maintaining that by December 2018, we will commence commercial services on this rail. 

“That is the directive of President Muhammadu Buhari who has insisted that we must ensure the whole country can be accessed by rail.
“Yesterday, I inspected the works done from Itagbe to Warri; and from Abraka and Agbo.’’
Speaking further, Mr Amaechi said the contract was first awarded in 1987 but was abandoned by successive administrations adding that there is now a ray of hope as Nigerian roads will not last longer as the rail services across the country commence.
