Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, has advanced reason Lagos-Abeokuta free train ride was put in abeyance blaming it on the rail contractors.
The former governor gave the reason on Friday just as he apologised for the inconvenience this may have caused the public.
According to him: “It was suspended by the Chinese and the excuse they gave me was that they cannot allow it run because of safety, since they have not completed the second line but they are almost through with it.
“It is almost completed from Iju to Abeokuta. I want to apologise to Nigerians that they suspended it when they left the country, which I didn’t envisage, they will go back soon.”
