    Blue Line Rail Project: Test run to start  December – Sanwo-Olu

    Blue Line Rail Project: Test run to start  December – Sanwo-Olu   Blue Line Rail Project: Test run to start  December – Sanwo-Olu   The on-going work on the Lagos Blue Line Rail project in Marina as the final T-Beam is being launched by Gov. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, on Wednesday, Aug. 17, 2022. Inset l-r: Commissioner for Transportation, Dr. Federic Oladeinde; Managing Director, Lagos Metropolitan Area Transport Authority (LAMATA), Mrs Abimbola AkinGov. Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State on Wednesday says the test run of the Blue Rail Line train service project will commence December 2022. Sanwo-Olu said this in Marina at the launch of the last track beam (T-beam) for the blue line rail mass transit project.

    He said that with the launching of the last T-beam, the blue line rail project would be formally complete before December, after which the test run would start.  

    L-R: Lagos State Deputy Governor, Dr Obafemi Hamzat; Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu; Consul General of China in Lagos, Mr Chu Maoming; Chairman, CCECC Worldwide, Mr Liu Weimin and Managing Director, Lagos Metropolitan Area Transport Authority (LAMATA), Mrs Abimbola Akinajo during the final T-Beam launch for the Lagos Blue Line Rail project at Marina, on Wednesday, Aug. 17, 2022.    According to him, the government is committed to ensuring the project is completed in time, as the two trains bought in China for the project will arrive in October.

    He said that his administration was on a journey to ensuring the trains begin commercial operations in the first quarter of 2023, as earlier promised.

    Sanwo-Olu said that the achievement in the area of the setting of the last T-beam was in line with his administration’s commitment to bringing succour to residents and give them choices in mass transportation.

    “Today’s final T-beam launch indicates that we are gradually inching to the completion of the civil infrastructure for the first phase of the Blue Line traversing from Mile 2 to Marina.

    “The engineering work today completes a total of 1,967 piles foundation, while we have also completed three 306 platforms, 310 piers, 267 cover beams and erection of 984 T-beams.

    “We are not just making promises; people are beginning to see for themselves that all the milestones and the difficult tasks we are meant to achieve to ensure operation of the Blue Line are being achieved.

    “The Marina Station, which is the iconic terminal for the Blue Line, will be completed within two-and-half months.

    I am restating here that we will formally complete this Blue Line before Dec. 31, 2022,” he said.

    Sanwo-Olu said that the construction of the second phase of the Blue Line project would commence after the start of operation, which would extend the rail project from Mile 2 to Okokomaiko.

    He said that Blue Line stations would be built at Festac, Alakija, Trade Fair, Volkswagen, LASU and Okokomaiko.

    Sanwo-Olu said that talks were being held with the Ogun State Government for possible extension of the rail line to Agbara.

    According to him, the second phase of the Blue Line project will be an easy infrastructure to develop, because the marked alignment for stations and tracks are largely at grid level.

    “While we are at this, the Red Line is also on the way.

    This is a start-and-end project for our administration, with about seven stations concurrently being built.

    This will redefine mass transportation in Lagos.

    “To our citizens, I say the Blue Line is for real and you will ride on it in no distant future.

    “For the Doubting Thomases and people that do not like our face, their eyes cannot disbelieve in the infrastructure we are bequeathing to the citizens of our state.

    “They cannot disbelieve in our bold effort and commitment to improve mobility and deliver transport infrastructure that brings ease to our people,” he said.

    Mrs Abimbola Akinajo, Managing Director, Lagos Metropolitan Area Transport Authority (LAMATA), said that the first 13-kilometre stretch of the Blue Line construction was divided into four phases to enable the government fund the project from its Internally Generated Revenue (IGR).

    Akinajo said that to get to the current status, the construction work experienced disturbances and delays in the relocation of submarine cables, submarine natural gas pipelines, and removal of underground shipwrecks.

    “Just as we are laying the final T-beam for the rail tracks, we are also currently retrofitting the train stations at Mile 2, Alaba, Iganmu and National Theatre with light, in readiness for passenger operation in the first quarter of 2023,” she said.

    Mr Liu Wei Min, Chairman, China Civil Engineering Construction Corporation (CCECC) described the event as the most significant level of the project.

    Min expressed gratitude to the Sanwo-Olu’s administration for reaching the milestone, adding that the company would continue to work to meet the ultimate target in delivering the entire project with high standards and quality.

    Commissioner advocates effective urban transport system in Lagos

    Dr Frederick Oladeinde, Lagos Commissioner for Transportation, says effective and efficient urban transport system will promote trade and commerce in the state and Africa at large.

    Oladiende made the assertion at a maiden meeting of the Centre For Applied Research in Supply Chain-Africa (CARISCA) on Friday in Lagos.

    The commissioner,  represented by Mr Gbolahan Toriola, Director of Operation,  Ministry of Transportation, said a strong institution, partnership, legal framework and implementation is beneficial in achieving an effective and efficient urban transport system in the state.

    The News Agency of Nigeria reports that CARISCA is in partnership with School of Transport and Logistics of the Lagos State University (LASU) Ojo in  ensuring sustainable urban mobility.

    The topic of the programme is: “The Impact of Urban Transport Systems on Fast Moving Consumer Goods Supply (FMCGs) Chain”.

    “The efforts of the state in driving a sustainable model for public transportation cannot be said to be without challenges, but with partnership with relevant stakeholders,  work is ongoing  round the clock, in a bid to tackle the situation.

    “With the ongoing transportation reforms and infrastructural investment going on in the state, in the next 25 years, Lagos will experience a growth that will align with global standards.

    “We align with the principles of urban mobility and other international convention, in order to achieve a sustainable urban mobility and transportation network,” Oladiende said.

    He added that the objective of the state was to encapsulate the growing national consciousness on issues of road infrastructure, policy, technology, road safety and affordable transport network, that would trigger significant reduction in operational cost.

    “The government is working tirelessly to proffer urban transportation solutions in terms of policy, guidelines, infrastructure, technology and operations that are sustainable and in line with global standards,” the commissioner noted.

    Prof. Charles Asenime, Dean, School of Transport, LASU, said that the attitude of some Nigerians, particularly drivers, had also contributed to the bad traffic situation in the state.

    Asenime said that if the Lagos government and other stakeholders could sort out the traffic situation in the state, it meant such could be replicated anywhere in the country.

    Also speaking, Prof. Gbadebo Odewumi, former Dean, School of Transport, LASU, said that the government still needed to pay more attention to transportation in the state.

    “The Lagos State Transport Management Authority (LASTMA) needs to be more empowered to shield the operatives from the regular attacks they had been exposed to, particularly from law-breaking motorists,” he said.

    Mr Tonye Preghafi, Chief Innovation Officer, Red Star Express Plc, said that many FMCGs companies were using data analytic to solve problems, generate insights and actions, to solve customers sales.

    Preghafi, then urged organisations to always use innovative technology for e-commerce and to drive consumer sales.

    “Availability is the new innovation, having products on the shelf is better than any new product innovation,” he said.

    How academics, others see JAMB cut-off marks

    The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB), during its policy meeting held on July 21, pegged the minimum cut-off score for admission into the country’s universities at 140 for the 20222023 academic session.

    It put that of Polytechnics at 120, and Colleges of Education at 100. Two years back,  it had approved 160 as cut-off mark for 20202021 university admissions. 

    The board also approved 120 as cut-off marks for Polytechnic and 100 for the school of Education and Innovative institutions.

    Last year, it announced 140 as the cut-off mark for all federal, state, and private Universities; 100 for polytechnics; and 80 for colleges of education in Nigeria for the 2021 admission.

    The News Agency of Nigeria reports that, in announcing this year’s cut-off marks, the examination body said that of the over 1.7 million candidates that sat for the examination, only 378,639  scored 200 and above.

    The trend of the cut-off marks over the years, dropping in the case of universities to 140, of the total 400 marks, has elicited mixed reactions.

    Some describe the lowering of the cut-off, the benchmark for placement of candidates into the country’s institutions of higher learning, as worrisome, with implications for education standards.

    Others, however, think otherwise, saying it is not the sole determinant.

    Prof. Oluwole Familoni, immediate-past Deputy Vice Chancellor (Academics and Research), University of Lagos, believes that low cut-off marks would not encourage competition.

    He said that there was a need to ensure that candidates are challenged to get the best for the universities especially, as well as other tertiary institutions.

    This, according to him, will ensure that the best are admitted and fit for purpose, during and after graduation.

    Prof. Ibrahim Bakare, Chairman, Academic Staff Union of Universities, Lagos State University, Ojo (ASUU-LASU), believes the recent JAMB cut-off is a reflection of the performance of the candidates.

    Bakare, also Director of Consult, LASU, said that low cut-off had serious implications on the quality of students being produced at the moment.

    “This implies that the government needs to do a lot in motivating the teachers first in our secondary schools, and providing an enabling environment for private schools to compete well. 

    “Government should also train and retrain our teachers in public schools and adequately equip the laboratories to enhance the performance of the students.

    “More funds need to be allocated in real terms to the education sector, without delay, and the welfare of teachers should also be improved, if the performance of students are  to be enhanced,” he said.

    Bakare said that teachers’ rating, proper quality assurance mechanisms and teaching techniques required immediate attention of the government. 

    “Teaching environment must also be conducive to facilitate a smooth learning process.

    ” State of emergency should be declared in our education sector in Nigeria,” he said.

    But Chief Adeolu Ogunbanjo, Deputy National President, National Parent Teacher Association of Nigeria (NAPTAN), posits that cut-off marks can be seen only as a guide to university admission, but not in totality.

    He said that the institutions still conducted their own internal examinations, by way of the  Post  Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination.

    “Note that students securing admission into any university must have a combination of secondary school certificate examinations result, JAMB score and the particular university internally conducted examination.

    “I think and I want to believe that the wisdom Prof. Ishaku Oloyode used there, was to ensure that university admission is  now flexible to ensure that it takes more students, particularly now  that a lot of things are disturbing education in the country.

    “But lowering the cut-off to 140 does not mean that a student who aspires to study Engineering can do so; however we don’t mind the step, as parents,” he said.

    Mr Andrew Agada, Principal, King’s College, Lagos is of the view that the candidates’ performance in the examination could have been part of the reason for the cut-off marks announced.

    He noted that some time back, it used to be higher for universities and the other tertiary institutions. 

    “Universities used to be 180 at least, but getting to this level right now, means something must be fundamentally wrong somewhere,” he said.

    Agada lauded one of his students that participated at the examination and came out with a total score of 355. He noted that it was no mean feat, adding that it was a thing of honour to the college and needed to be celebrated.

    Mr Sunday Fowowe, National President, Association of Nursery and Primary Education Instructors in Nigeria (ANPEIN) expressed concern at the cut-off marks for this year.

    Fowowe said that the poor performance of candidates in this year’s examination were possibly due to the questions being above the curriculum or syllabus given to them to study.

    “Also, maybe laziness on the part of the candidates, for which they didn’t study well for the examination, could also be a factor.

    “As researchers, we are compelled by this development to carry out a survey about those that scored less than 180, that will secure admission into the various universities.

    “We must do a four-year longitudinal study of their performance in their future departments, to see if there is a correlation between JAMB  performance  (scores) and  undergraduate academic performance,” he said.

    To Dr Nasir Fagge, a former President of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU),  there is a need for a review of the law establishing the JAMB.

    According to him, the idea of allowing the examination body to decide general cut off marks for the country’s tertiary institution must be jettisoned, if the system is to achieve its mandate.

    “This is one of the things we have been engaging the government on, in the past.

    Where in the world will you have a particular outfit to determine what is best for institutions of learning in terms of admission?

    “The practice is foreign to university autonomy. 

    “The job of the board should end with conducting the examination.

    All it has to do thereafter is to collate the results and handover to the respective institutions of higher learning, to decide what they want.

    “These institutions will then form a committee that will do other checks, come to an agreement and then hand it over to the Senate for final decision.

    “The act  of deciding who is admitted into any university for instance, should lie solely with the Senates of the various universities. 

    “They should be able to look at the general performance of the candidates and determine where to peg their cut-off marks and not JAMB.

    “In my opinion, I dare say that this sort of practice by the examination body does not encourage merit and capacity,” the unionist said.

    LASU Foundation seeks help for student transportation

    Prof.

    Yunus Dauda, ​​Program Director of Lagos State University Foundation (JUPEB), has asked the Chairman of the Badagry Local Government, Mr. Olusegun Onilude, to help transport the students to the campus of Badagry.

    Dauda made the appeal as he led a team on a courtesy visit to the chairman of the council secretariat in Ajara, Badagry, on Saturday.

    JUPEB is the Joint Universities Preliminary Examinations Board.

    Dauda said one of the main challenges LASU faced was transporting students to campus.

    “The institution has tried several times to acquire a Macopolo Bus for the students, but due to various limitations we were unable to do so.

    “We will appreciate if the president can help, by any means, as this will reduce the stress students are going through.

    “Management will be grateful if the president can help the foundation get the bus to make it easier for the students,” he said.

    He praised Onilude for supporting the institution and urged him to do more.

    “On behalf of LASU Vice Chancellor, Prof.

    Ibiyemi Olatunji-Bello, we are here to thank the Local Government of Badagry for supporting the institution.

    “Something I admire about the president is his simplicity.

    There was a time when we had some challenges, he attended to us immediately.

    “This has shown that everything I have heard about him is wrong, and this means that if we have people like him at the forefront of affairs, this country will come out ahead.

    “What I saw in the president is not what is commonly seen in politicians today, that is why we are here,” Dauda said.

    In response, Onilude said that since the institution was part of his constituency, he would be worried about his problems.

    “I also appreciate you coming in person, some would have just done it on paper.

    “When someone comes in with a problem, we have to listen; If we can't solve it, we must offer some solutions.

    “We will continue to work together as long as you need our services.

    “I personally have a relationship with LASU where I did two Master's degrees (MBA and Educational Management).

    I can't rule LASU out on me and because it's our state university, we need to show concern about it,” he said.

    Dr. Gbemisola Saibu, deputy director of the LASU Foundation, urged the president not to stop doing good.

    The Nigerian News Agency reports that the JUPEB program is intended to provide students with the opportunity to spend a year in a regulated academic environment and receive the required training, after which successful students will be admitted to the second year of a appropriate program.
