<p class="">The minister, who is also the chairman of the committee, said that the project would be executed in a flexible manner to improve commuter service.</p>

<p class="">He said that work on the project would be done in a manner that would make it adaptable to the results of the feasibility and technical studies.</p>

<p class="">Fashola expressed delight that, while the personnel of Presidents and Ministers who launched the initiative had changed, the commitment to the project had remained unchanged.</p>

<p class="">He said that the committee had put in place, a system where meetings would now be held Quarterly.</p>

<p class="">“<em>Between 2013 and 2016, no meeting was held because of changes in government and personnel, but we have now put in place a system where we will be holding meetings quarterly,</em>” Fashola said.</p>

<p class="">Fashola paid glowing tribute to the founding presidents of the committee for their vision of choosing “<em>to go far as a team rather than going fast as individuals”.</em></p>

<p class=""><em>“Going together, therefore, means working as partners, recognising and respecting each other’s sovereignty and governmental processes as well as diversity of languages</em>,” he added.</p>
