A model of the Railway Plant

The Honourable Minister of
Transportation, Mr. Rotimi Amaechi, will on Saturday 9th of November, 2019
accompany the Vice President, Federal Republic of Nigeria, Prof.
Osibanjo, to the groundbreaking ceremony of the planned Railway Wagon
  Plant in Kajola, Ogun State.

The Ministry on behalf of the Federal
Government had in March 2018 signed an agreement with the Chinese Rail Contractor,
CCECC, to establish the Wagon Assembly Plant where rolling stocks would be
produced locally for the on-going Railway Modernization Projects.

When established, the plant is
expected to produce part of the Wagons which would be used on the Lagos –
Ibadan, Abuja – Kaduna, Ajaokuta – Warri Railway Lines operations and for other
railway operators.  

Upon completion and commencement of
production, the Plant is expected to employ nearly five thousand (5000)

 As demand increases for rolling stocks, the
capacity of the plant would be expanded to include in the first phase assembly
of coaches and locomotive.

The project would serve as a catalyst
for national economic growth and development as enshrined in federal
government’s Economic Recovery and Growth Plan (ERGP) and local capacity for
the production materials and products underpinned by the Presidential Executive
Order No. 5.
