President Bola Tinubu has arrived in Abuja after a three-day working visit to Lagos State.

Tinubu will begin another round of project inaugurations upon his arrival in Abuja, ahead of the commemoration of his one year in office.

Lagos Gov. Babajide Sanwo-Olu and other dignitaries were at the Murtala Muhammed airport, Ikeja, to see him off.

A Nigerian Air Force aircraft with registration number 5N-FGN transported the president.

Just before the president departed, the Lagos State Council for Arts and Culture troupe was also at the airport to perform.

The president had arrived in Lagos on Saturday to flag off the implementation of his administration’s legacy project — the Lagos-Calabar Superhighway, estimated to cost about N15 trillion.

During his visit, the president inaugurated a concrete-paved road to the nation’s major ports in Apapa and Tin Can Island on Sunday.

Persecondnews obtained a statement from Mr. Bayo Onanuga, the Special Adviser to the President on Information and Strategy, stating that the Dangote Group financed the reconstructed road using its tax credits.

During his visit, Tinubu also virtually inaugurated the refurbished Third Mainland Bridge.

The Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Mr. Nyesom Wike, has named the Southern Parkway in honour of the president upon his arrival in Abuja.

On Wednesday, the president will attend the National Assembly Dialogue Series, after which he will unveil the National Assembly Library Complex.

Tinubu will leave the National Assembly to re-launch the commercialization of Abuja Light Rail, also known as Abuja Metro, and symbolically join the train ride to the city centre.

Persecondnews recalls that the COVID-19 pandemic affected the Abuja Metro’s use in 2020, despite its completion in 2018.

Wike built access roads to its various stations and refurbished the Abuja Metro for commercial service.

After the train ride, Tinubu will inaugurate the Wuye Flyover-Link Bridge and the Defence Intelligence Agency Headquarters.

On May 31, he will inaugurate the NASENI-Portland Compressed Natural Gas Reserve Engineering Centre at Utako.
