Abuja-Kaduna train service to resume in two weeks – FG

The Federal Government has finally assured that the Abuja-Kaduna train service will resume operation in less than two weeks.

Mu’azu Jaji Sambo, the minister of transportation, said this on Thursday in Ibadan, at the Railway station in Moniya, at his first inspection visit to the 157-km Lagos-Ibadan standard gauge railway.

He assured of the safety of railway passengers across the country, as well as security on board the train.

Accompanied by the Minister of State, Prince Ademola Adegoroye, the Managing Director of the Nigeria Railway Corporation (NRC), Fidet Okhiria, and other officials of the ministry, the minister assured that the federal government would improve security on the railway corridors.

He added, “It is not necessary for me to share that date publicly, I don’t think that will help in running the service.

“Nigerians are interested in the service, in less than two weeks, before the month is over, so just be patient.”
