The president today and some of his team inspected the Abuja
Rail Mass Transit Line. See more photos after the cut and also read the short speech he gave.

“I emphasised the need for rail system in terms of
developing an effective mass transit in any nation,” Mr. Jonathan said.
“When we are talking about mass transit, you cannot talk
about it using taxis, small cars, even the luxurious buses. It will be too
expensive.
“We want our rail system to work and that’s why we are
emphasising intercity and intra-city, normal rail and intra city light rail
systems.
“Of course, this government is leaving on the 29th. The
incoming government will definitely continue because this is a noble project to
Nigerians especially residents of the FCT.
“We are quite appreciative of the level of cooperation. The
CCECC has been doing very well and of course, the ministry of the Federal
Capital Territory. They are doing wonderfully well.
“I’m quite impressed. I have been longing to come and
inspect the project for a very long time but for challenges in terms of my
commitments.
“I think, this period, I really need to so that when I am
having conversation with the incoming president, I will know exactly what to
tell him because I have seen it myself, I have seen the level of completion.

“Of course, you know the usefulness of this project in terms
of easing the movement of the people in the Federal Capital Territory. I have
to congratulate Nigerians for this project.”
