The federal government has disclosed that Nigerians will have to pay between N3,000 and N6,000 as transport fare for the Lagos-Ibadan train route.
This was disclosed on Friday in Abuja by the Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi during the inauguration of the Governing Council of the Chartered Institute of Transport Administration of Nigeria.
He declared that he had received the mandate from President Muhammadu Buhari to inaugurate the Lagos/Ibadan rail project and the train services will be operational by January 2021.
So depending on the class of ticket, train tickets for the route will cost between N3,000 and N6,000 just like the Abuja-Kaduna route, Amaechi noted.
In his words, “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 look like.
