Gov Sam-Olu to flag off much-expected Lagos Blue rail transport



By Hannah Nathan, Warri

Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu is said to be flagging off the much-expected Lagos Blue rail transport from Marina to Mile 2.

Sanwo-Olu is currently on the inaugural ride of the rail with some passengers.

Earlier, the state government warned residents to avoid crossing the track of the Blue Rail line which was set to start full commercial operations on Monday, September 4.

Sending the directive via Twitter recently, the Chief Press Secretary to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, Gboyega Akosile, advised the residents to rather use the overhead bridges as the rail line is electrified.
Akosile tweeted: “Dear Lagosians, please be reminded as we kick off the commercial operations of the Lagos Blue Line Rail transport on Monday, that the rail line is electrified.

“Don’t cross the rail lines because it is dangerous. Use the overhead bridges that have been provided by the government. Thank you.”
