After 11 years of construction, the Mohamadu Buhari led administration finally commissioned the Abuja light rail which was initiated by the previous administrations. The Abuja light rail entered the history book yesterday as the first of its kind in West Africa.

The commissioning by the Nigerian president marked the beginning of operation of the world-class light rail in the Nigeria capital city. It will also reduce the traffic jam on the major roads as most people may decide to take the light rail instead of the normal buses and cabs.
