Chinese construction giant the China Civil Engineering Construction Corporation will build a rolling stock assembly plant in Nigeria to promote the country's railway modernization project. At a ground breaking ceremony for the plant recently at Kajola in the southwestern state of Ogun, Nigeria's Vice President Yemi Osinbajo said “It is a historic turning point in Nigeria's railway modernization plan. When completed, it is expected that the plant will produce some wagons for the Lagos-Ibadan and Abuja-Kaduna rail line and to satisfy the needs of other rail operators within the West African sub-region and indeed within the African continent. The plant would offer an important platform for technicians, artisans, and others to gain specialized skills for the production and maintenance of rolling stocks.”

The plant will have the capacity to produce 500 wagons per year and will undertake key production processes like welding, assembly, painting, drying and testing
