In December 2023, the governor unveiled the Lagos Rail Mass Transit Red Line Ikeja Overpass alongside his Kwara State counterpart and Chairman of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum, AbdulRahman Abdulrasaq.

He said it would be unveiled by Tinubu before the end of the first quarter of 2024, adding that when operational, the Red Line will convey about 500,000 passengers daily.
