Abuja Mass Transit

For an update on the metro system being planned and built in Abuja, click here. [warning: Business Day's journalism is C-, compared to This Day's consistent E/F rating].

I'm not sure about having a diesel-based train system. A light-rail system would surely have been better (quicker to build, easier to maintain etc.) But then again, how would the electricity problem have been solved, short of building a dedicated power station?

Slowly but surely, Abuja is going to be one of the best cities to visit north of South Africa..

I agree. Lagos is also in need of a metro rail system. I know the logistics of executing such a project would be a nightmare, but it would solve a lot of the traffic problems in Lagos.
