Despite the fact that this project yet to be completed, President Buhari would be commissioning it today.
Oshodi transport interchange is being handled by Planet Projects Ltd, the details of the cost involved in the implementation of the project is not known, Lagos does not run an open budget system. The Oshodi transport interchange is an ambitious project creating new solutions, but the commissioning of the projects by the governor when it is just about 60% complete makes it more like a personal venture rather than a public project financed with tax payers money.
