The Honourable Minister of Transportation, Rt. Hon. Rotimi Amaechi on Friday revealed that the Lagos-Ibadan rail project slowed down during the elections because officials of the project contractor, the China Civil Engineering Construction Corporation (CCECC) left the country ahead of the general elections in Nigeria. This is even as the Minister explained that gaps have been noticed on the project, and is being worked on by the contractor.
According to the Minister, “I was not aware of this until now. They just told me that they usually travel if there is an election in any country that they are working in.
