The Federal Government on Wednesday approved $1,959,744,723.71 for the construction of a rail line that will link Nigeria to Niger Republic.

The approval was given at a meeting of the Federal Executive Council presided over by the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.).

The Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, told State House correspondents at the end of the meeting that the sum approved for the development of the proposed rail line linking Kano-Dutse-Katsina-Jibia and to Maradi in Niger Republic is inclusive of Value Added Tax.

Why do we want to service another country when we've not finished serving in house?
Please Mr. President do we have a valid train service that can service all routes in Nigeria-namely North East West South? If we don't have then it's a waste of resources doing the aforementioned rail line.

Having seen the handwriting on the walls, North is preparing for breakup. Developing and planning  links to their neighboring countries; wise steps. This is another project out of thousands, that is why Fg is tactically delaying the call for breakup.
