Lagos-Ibadan railway: Omokri commends Buhari for completing Jonathan’s project

Reno Omokri, former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan has commended President Muhammadu Buhari for completing the Lagos-Ibadan railway project.

Omokri, a staunch critic of Buhari, however, stated that the project was intimated by the Jonathan’s administration.

He pointed out that Buhari’s government could have abandoned the project since they did not initiate it but decided to complete 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 had yesterday inaugurated the 157km double track Lagos-Ibadan standard gauge.

The inauguration ceremony took place in Lagos.
