Oct 30, 2013 – Lagos Light Rail Mass Transit Project Update 2013: Surulere Lagos Station Under Construction By Chinese Firm

The current governor of Lagos State Nigeria is doing some pretty amazing job in this sunshine state.

As we speak a new light rail transit system is being constructed in Surulere area of Lagos by a Chinese construction firm.

According to sources, the purpose of the project is to help relieve the crazy traffic on the road.

Hope our people will have the boldness to ride it when the project eventually completes sometimes in 2015.

This will be like underground subways in Toronto and other countries.

Kudos to Fashola. Eko oni baje o

  3. The problem with Nigeria is maintenance.
    What is the guarantee that the next governor of the state will maintain what fashola started

  4. Tamitope,Governor Fashola is doing a good job, however, that does not give you the odacity to call the president names, that is stupid and a complete insubordination. You have the right to criticise his policies but not to abuse him in person. This shows how narrow minded some Nigerians can be.

  5. It is true jawe dat stupid jonathan and his stupid wife…they are doing nfn..his wife is just using are grammar to kill people’on behalf on 2omillion i donate my family’ instead of on behalf of my family i donate this 2omillion.

  6. The maintenance is ..”Vote 4 continuity” d nex Gov shuld b 4rm APC…..then continuity wil continue, maintenance $ more will Happen to Lagos state…..”Just Vote APC esp Anambra Election in corner….

  7. I have often said it to those who care to listen, Fashola is the only governor in Nigeria that is putting the resiurces of his state to good use, to benefit the people. I think the ex and current 419 governors of the other states are watching. Nemesis will catch up with them. I wish and pray that Fashola becomes the president of Nigeria to move the country forward.

  8. If all Nigerian governor nd politicians react like fashola Nigeria will be a better place bcos he is the best governor I have ever experience. Fashola may God strengthen u with ur gud wrk. Nd as 4 the woman who want to give fashola a kiss to show appreciation pls dnt do dat bcos dat will be a public assault, most especially u are a married woman, if u kiss fashola dat means if u see jesus u will rape him 4 all the gud things he has done in dis world, thank u wit sincerity is the best way to appreciate

  9. fashola is setting a marking scheme for the governors coming after him, with his standards we will judge other governors if they have done well or not. personally for me, when his tenure ends as the governor of LAGOS state, he shd do so with his head raised HIGH, cos he has done a magnificent job. not saying he hasnt got his own dirty laundry. KUDOS to the man.

  10. Over the years i have paid attention to Gov Fashola’s Adminstration , particularly his accomplishments, to me he’s arguably the bset governor in Nigeria. I was in Lagos in January when i visited Nigeria from New York. I could not believe my eyes with what

    Gov. Fashola is arguably the best governor in Nigeria. He has taken his state (Lagos state) to another level. I have been paying attention to all the good job he has been doing. Early this year(2013), when I visited Nigeria from New York, I could not believe my eyes with what I saw. The Lagos i saw early this year was not the same Lagos i used to know 20 yrs. ago when i left Nigeria. Fashola has changed and revolutionized the entire state through good roads, decongestions of traffic especially (Oshodi bus stop) and many more. Lagos state has workable traffic lights like here in New York and Trees lining the streets of Lagos. And now cowning all with Light Rail Road. Gov. Fashola, you have led by example. . Surely, you have earned my vote as the Nigerian president. And I am looking forward for the day you declare your candidacy. Mr. Evulukwu, from New York.

  11. My dear Gov Fashola,
    May the Almighty God ih Heaven continue to bless you in the spiritual and in the pyhsical.I have always cried when I see countries in europe with light rails and funtioning distance train system and a 24 hours electricity and we in Nigeria have nothing at all. Nigeria in resources wise is richer than the whole of western europe combined but our wealth is being centred in the hands of a few.

    Nigerian leaders deposit their stolen money in european banks and after their tenure,they never are able to get all those money back It is either they get killed or threatened by those their european culprits who tell them that if the cry out,they will be well exposed so they just shut up and get what they are given from what they stole from Nigeria.

    What a shame. The europeans steal money too but not to so much excess like our mad Nigerian leaders. The european leaders believe first in making all their citizens comfortable before they even dare steal a dime but Nigerian leaders steal and ignore their citizens.

    The europeans would have helped them developed Nigeria all those while if they did wanted but the europeans saw that our Nigerian leaders were dummies who were acting like kings so they the europeans played along with them.

    Thank God that Jonathan became President and most of his Governors and Ministers are all Nationalist.

    Let Buhari and his men disappear from the political scene of Nigeria before God Almighty destroy them by his Holy Arkangels.

    They plunged Nigeria toooooo much into the dark and now that God is enlightenning Nigeria again,they Buhari and his culprits want to be a hindrance again. They will never succeed.

    Let all Nigerian Governors and Minsiters do like Fashola and Nigeria will be second to none country on earth and let the lawmakers in Nigeria immediately introduce a bill so that Nigeria should become a Socialist state whereby its citizens get welfare benefit monthly merit like here in Gewrmany and all western european countries.

    Nigeria has enough wealth to become a welfare state so no excuse at all not to introduce and pass the bill.

    Our lawmakers should also introduce a bill banning children from selling or hawking any kind of product until they become 16 years of age.

    School has to be mandatory till 13 years of age and after,the child can then learn a trade. Nigeria leaders should be banned from seeking medical threatments abroad. They should equip our Nigerian Hospitals with the state of the art medical equipments and train our doctors to be come specialists in all the medical fields because Nigerians area very brilliant and intelligent people with love in their heart. I believe in the goodness of Nigerians.
