The Lagos-Ibadan rail project was expected to be completed in February 2021 but was recently extended to April due to some unforeseen circumstances.

However, the seven smaller stations on the Lagos-Ibadan Standard Rail Gauge corridor are yet to be completed, an issue the minister tackled during his last routine tour of the project.
