Lagos Rail Project Costs Over ₦100bn – Sanwo-Olu

Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has revealed that the rail projects embarked upon by the state government will gulp over ₦100 billion.

He disclosed this during an interview on Sunday Politics, a political programme which aired on Channels Television on Sunday.

“It is a lot of money, it is well over N100 billion,” he said in reaction to the cost of the rail projects being constructed by the state government.

“I don’t criticise my predecessors but indeed for whatever planning or reasons, he never funded it. When we came back last two years, the contractor has since moved from about 55 per cent to about 93 per cent in terms of the physical construction of phase 1.”

The governor also accused the administration of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) didn’t give the state government the right of way for the construction of the light rail.
