LAGOS Oct 10 General Electric has a
"keen interest" in acquiring a Nigeria railway concession worth
around $2 billion, the U.S. company said on Monday.
Nigeria has been looking for partners to upgrade its ageing
rail network but GE did not specify which concession it was
"Given the size and scope of the proposed project, it is
likely that the debt and equity commitments required from
lenders, consortium partners and other co-developers will be in
the range of $2 billion or more," GE said in a statement.
