At a ceremony at Government House in Awka, Anambra state governor Peter Obi recently signed an agreement with Globim Corporation chairman Dr Jude Igwemezie for the construction of the Onitsha metropolitan monorail in Nigeria. The project is to be a public-private partnership (PPP). The planned monorail is to run from Onitsha to Nkpor and Obosi.
Governor Obi was quoted saying that the monorail would solve the problem of road traffic congestion and enhance the movement of people in the area. Commissioner for special duties and transport Robert Okonkwo said the feasible study (carried out by Globim) confirmed that the project was feasible and viable.
