The labour party and its governorship candidate in Lagos state, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour has accused the state government of shutting their doors to private investors by directly or indirectly requesting equities to approve partnerships or award projects.


Rhodes-Vivour speaking during a televised interview, claimed the All progressive congress led government in the state has out rightly failed to deliver its promises on rail transportation in the state, insisting that the Blue rail took sixteen years to come to fruition.


According to him, the government should refrain from playing politics of propaganda, by crediting itself with projects it did not execute, calling for an open policy in project approval, disbursement of funds and execution.

The Lagos rail network project was inaugurated in 2003 by former governor Bola Tinubu, who colour-coded the train system according to location.


The Blue Line was codenamed for Marina to Okokomaiko, Red Line (Agbado to Marina), Yellow Line Otta to Iddo, Brown Line Mile 12 to Marina, Green Line Marina to Lekki, and the Orange Line.
