Written by on August 5, 2021

The Federal Executive Council (FEC) has approved the sum of 11.17 billion dollars to link all Nigeria’s coastal cities by rail in the next six years.

Lai Mohammed, Minister of Information and Culture, briefed State House correspondents after the virtual FEC meeting presided over by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo on Wednesday at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Mohammed said that the Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, presented two memos that had to do with Federal Government’s commitment to expanding and consolidating on the rail project.

He said the project was an old project which was inherited by the current administration.

Mohammed said that under the former administration, approval was given but nothing was done.
