Lagos-Ibadan Railway: Omokri Commends Buhari For Completing Jonathan’s Project



President Muhammadu Buhari has been praised by Reno Omokri, a senior adviser to previous President Goodluck Jonathan, for finishing the Lagos-Ibadan railway project.


However, Omokri, a vocal critic of Buhari, said that the initiative was first mentioned by Jonathan’s administration.

He noted that Buhari’s government might have abandoned the project because it was not initiated by them, but they chose to finish it.

In a tweet, the former presidential aide wrote: “I must commend General Buhari for completing the Lagos-Ibadan railway project.

“Although this project was initiated and started by the @GEJonathan government, the Buhari administration finished it. They could have abandoned it, but they did not. For that, they should be commended!”

Buhari inaugurated the 157-kilometer double-track Lagos-Ibadan standard gauge railway yesterday.

In Lagos, the inaugural event was place.
