Responders to the tweet however varies their thoughts on the project as some appreciated while others are keen on the maintenance
Good job folks. However, I am not sold on any new gigantic and fabulous-looking projects. I am sold on MAINTENANCE or SUSTAINABILITY.

Another also implored that the railway act be considered and signed into law to explore the full potentials of the project
Great achievement indeed but the Railway Act needs to be urgently amended to allow private investors and concessioning of train stations/trains.. which would fully explore the potential of this project and provide more jobs. @NGRSenate @OvieOmoAgege @DrAhmadLawan
