President Bola Ahmed Tinubu officially commissioned the Red Line Rail Mass Transit project in Lagos State during a ceremony held on Thursday.
The event saw the President being warmly received by Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, his wife Ibijoke, Deputy Governor Obafemi Hazmat, state commissioners, and aides at the commissioning of the red line train project.
Governor Sanwo-Olu welcomed President Tinubu alongside Governors Usman Ododo (Kogi), Abiodun Oyebanji (Ekiti), Dapo Abiodun (Ogun), former Lagos Governor Akinwunmi Ambode, and other dignitaries.
The Red Rail Line spans 37 kilometers with 13 stations strategically positioned to integrate key bus terminals at Oyingbo, Yaba, Oshodi, Ikeja, Ebute Metta, Iju, and Iddo, providing seamless connections to the international and domestic wings of the Murtala Muhammed Airport.

Governor Sanwo-Olu, in a statement shared via his official social media X handle on Thursday morning, emphasized that the commissioning of the project marks more than just an enhancement of the city’s mobility.
He underscored its role in reshaping the urban landscape and setting a new trajectory for development.
The governor highlighted that by interlinking critical points across Lagos, his administration is unlocking doors to opportunities, fostering growth, and laying the groundwork for a sustainable future.
He wrote: “Embarking on the Lagos Mass Rail Transit (LMRT) project is more than just enhancing transit; it’s about weaving the fabric of our city into a tighter, more connected community. Every track laid, every station built, brings us closer to a Lagos where distance no longer dictates destiny.
“The LMRT project is a beacon of progress, illuminating the path to a future where our city moves smoother, faster, and more efficiently. It’s not just about the journey from point A to B, but about how each journey brings us together, making Lagos not just a place to live, but a place to thrive.”
