The Ogun State Government says it plans to extend the Lagos Blue Rail Line project into the border towns of the state.
Disclosing this was the State Commissioner of Finance and Economic Adviser to the Governor, Mr Dapo Okubadejo. He said this on Monday at a media event organised to highlight the state 2024 budget held at the Olusegun Osoba Press Centre, Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta.
Okubadejo said, “2024 is focusing on the provision of infrastructure at the various economic development clusters while extending the Lagos Blue Rail Line Project into Agbara and ensuring the well-extending of the Lagos Red Rail Line Project to Ijoko and Ifo/Kajola in line with the execution of the state’s multi-modal transport plan under the Lagos-Ogun Joint Development Commission initiative”.
According to Okubadejo, the budget consists of N287.37 billion for recurrent expenditure and N415.66 billion for capital expenditure.
“Our target as a government is to be the most economically viable state. We are set to open up our Economic Development Clusters with significant economic activities; we need to have a master plan, be careful with debt and continue to be very strategic in our collective effort to develop the state to an enviable height among its peers,” he said.
