Bola Tinubu, President-elect has vowed to speed up ongoing projects when sworn in on May 29th.
This was revealed by the Bola Ahmed Media Centre via its official Twitter handle on Monday.
The statement partly read, “The Lagos – Kano; Benin – Abakaliki; Port Harcourt – Maiduguri; Lagos – Calabar; and Kano – Maradi will be given special attention as his administration hopes to get them completed as soon as possible.
“Having been instrumental to the Lagos rail success story, Asiwaju understands that railways are less expensive in the shipment of large quantities of goods from one location to another part of the country.
“State Governments will be encouraged to build metro systems in their capital cities. These metros will link up with existing national rail lines and revolutionise urban transport in Nigeria.
“This will further boost commerce and contribute significantly to national GDP growth as envisioned in the Renewed Hope policy plan.”
The former Lagos State Governor who was declared winner of the recently concluded presidential election returned to the country after spending one month in France.
