The Federal Goverment has assured succour to host communities adversely affected environmentally or otherwise by the construction of the Lagos-Ibadan rail modernization project.

In furtherance to that, he directed the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry, Dr. Magdalene Ahani to ensure that the communities are visited to ascertain the level of impact and possible interventions.

The Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Transportation, Dr. Magdalene Ajani, some Directors of the Ministry Chairman, Governing Board, NRC, Ibrahim Alhassan Musa, Managing Director, NRC, Fidet Okhiria , the new Managing Director, CCECC, Zhang Zhichen, and the Consultants, (TEAM) were among dignitaries present at the inspection.
