The Federal Government has said that travellers will pay at least N3,000 to transport via the Lagos-Ibadan railway line.
This was stated by the Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, at the inauguration of the Governing Council of the Chartered Institute of Transport Administration of Nigeria (CIOTA) in Abuja on Friday.
The minister said that the railway line will commence operations before it is inaugurated in January 2021 by President Muhamamdu Buhari.
Amaechi said: “I have received the mandate of President Muhammadu Buhari to inaugurate the Lagos/Ibadan rail project by January 2021 which will make Nigerians see the way the standard gauge railway looked like.
“Today I approved the charges on passengers from Lagos to Ibadan, we just transfer how we charged from Abuja to Kaduna.
“We charge N3,000 per Economy seat, N5,000 for Business class and N6,000 for First class, the same is applicable to Lagos to Ibadan.
“It should have started running by now before Mr President inaugurates it by January.” (Agency report)
