Lagos-Kano Rail To Generate 250,000 Job Openings - Amaechi

Kaduna - The Minister of Transportation, Mr
Rotimi Amaechi, said on Friday that the Lagos-
Kano Rail project would be completed in the
next two years.
Amaechi, who said this while inspecting the
Abuja-Kaduna rail project in Kaduna, added that
it would generate employment for 250,000
Nigerians.
He said the ongoing rail project from Lagos-
Kano and Lagos-Calabar would generate more
employment than the Abuja-Kaduna rail
modernisation project.
He further stated that a training institute would
be established by the Chinese company to train
Nigerians on operations, maintenance and
communication.
``For the Lagos-Kano and Lagos-Calabar rail
project, we expect to generate like 250,000
employment opportunities both formal and
informal.
``We are negotiating with General Electric in
America to construct a narrow gauge from
Lagos to Kano and they cannot run that without
training Nigerians.
``If the communication system goes down how
do we revive it, so they would also teach
Nigerians how to maintain it.
`` If we want to replace it, how do we replace
it, so the key thing is transfer of technology
and that will be the focus of the ministry.''
He said government would ensure that the rail
service was affordable for the masses.
