This significant milestone was marked with the presence of Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, who became the first passenger to embark on the inaugural ride as services officially commenced on Monday.
Governor Sanwo-Olu embarked on this historic journey, boarding the train at the Marina terminal with a destination set for Mile 2. The sight of the governor as the first passenger added a touch of ceremony to the occasion, signifying the importance of this development.
This highly anticipated development was announced earlier by the Managing Director of the Lagos Metropolitan Area Transport Authority, Mrs. Abimbola Akinajo. She had revealed that the Lagos Blue Line Rail would commence commercial operations on Monday, September 4th, with the honor of hosting Governor Sanwo-Olu as its debut passenger, marking a new era in Lagos' public transportation system."
