When traveling Africa, you do not need to worry about…
President Muhammadu Buhari has commissioned the first phase of the Abuja Light Rail project and he was visibly delighted with this achievement- smiling all the way.
A post on his Facebook page states:
“This morning I formally commissioned the Abuja Light Rail System. The completion of this very important project is a dream come true, and clearly demonstrates our administration’s commitment to the realization of critical infrastructural projects.
“The Abuja Light Rail System is further evidence that we are a government that delivers on its promises. A modern rail service will greatly boost the FCT economy and enhance social life.
“Our commitment to the vision for a modern, integrated rail system for Nigeria is total. The 2nd phase of the Abuja Light Rail will connect more parts of the city, while our standard-gauge National Rail is also taking shape, with the Lagos-Ibadan leg currently under construction.
The exciting thing about Abuja light rail is that is links the city’s key hubs to the airport which helps to make it more of a modern international city. Good times for visitors and residents to Nigeria’s capital seem to have arrived especially in terms of transportation.
