Engr. Yusuf Majolagbe, the Chairman of the Nigerian Institution of Environmental Engineers (NIEE), Lagos chapter, has praised his colleagues for ‘doing remarkably well’ with regard to the diversification of the transportation system in the state.
TOP MEDIA recalls that earlier this week, Nigeria’s commercial capital, Lagos, began the first commercial operations for its Blue Rail Line project.
Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, joined fellow Lagosians and state officials in celebrating the official launch of commercial operations for the Lagos Blue Line rail.
The long-awaited commencement date, which had been postponed multiple times, is expected to provide significant relief to the people of Lagos.
Speaking on Thursday, September 7, during the Memorial Lecture of the NIEE, in honour of the Late Engr. Chief Samuel Fadahunsi, held in Ikeja, Engr. Majolagbe noted that engineers are proud of civil servants who started from the scratch to put a lot into public service growth. He also applauded them, saying they are “being acknowledged” so as to spur them to do greater jobs for the further development of Lagos state.
Furthermore, Engr. Majolagbe explained that engineers in the Lagos State Public Service have done admirably in terms of infrastructural development, by “taking the lead” on bringing electric vehicles to the state, with Oando Clean energy. He as well lauded his colleagues for the “diversification in the transportation system”, which, according to him, ensured that the Blue Rail line was up and running in Lagos.
