Egbaland To Enjoy Itself History, As FG Inaugurates First Phase Lagos-Ibandan Rail



The Federal Government of Nigeria is set to inaugurate the first phase of the Lagos – Ibadan standard gauge in the western part of the country from Iju, Lagos to Abeokuta, Ogun state on Friday.

The paramount ruler of Egbaland (Alake of Egbaland), Oba Adedotun Aremu Gbadebo in his appreciation stressed that Egbaland will enjoy repeat of itself history.

Oba Gbadebo, who arrived the venue of the inauguration in Iju Lagos in company of his high chiefs, told newsmen that since 1900 when the 3,500km narrow gauge line from Lagos to Kano was inaugurated, nothing had been added to the line.

But with the inauguration of the 156-kilometer Lagos-Ibadan standard gauge, which covers about 85 kilometers, the paramount ruler said history was repeating itself.

Vice President Professor Yemi Osinbajo is expected to inaugurate the rail line from Iju station this morning.

According to Oba Gbadebo, the development would transform the entire economic landscape of the Southwest.

He said the narrow gauge, which was inaugurated in over 116 years ago, had become obsolete, requiring a modern railway system to cope with the present era.

The monarch added that the roads would last longer if goods and cargoes were moved by train.
