While speaking with journalists during a tour of the Federal Government rail project in Papalantoro, Ogun State, the minister of transport, Rotimi Amaechi, on Tuesday, said the Nigerian government will soon commission two rail locomotives and 10 coaches to ease transport among Nigerians ahead of the Yuletide celebration.

According to Premium Times, the minister said the government had received delivery of the locomotives and coaches.

He said; “The president will be commissioning it this December. We want to make sure that those travelling from Abuja to Kaduna are able to use the new coaches and locomotives.”

The former governor of Rivers state who examined the level of work done by the contractors, expressed worry over the rate at which the project is being executed.

He, however, assured Nigerians that the December 2018 deadline set for the completion of the project still holds, saying the contractors would need to intensify their efforts.

The minister also assured that none of the contractors is being owed by the government.
