FG vows to recover stolen railway properties

The federal government has vowed to recover all illegally occupied Nigeria Railway lands and properties nationwide.

The Railway Property Management Company Limited (RPMC), a subsidiary of Nigeria Railway Corporation, disclosed this to journalists recently in Gombe.

The managing director of RPMC, Timothy Zalanga, said the government has set up a task force to actualize the objective.

He stated that the task force would conduct a nationwide audit to recover lands whose records were lost over the years.

“Railway is back to serve Nigerians, and the overall interest of Nigerian people is bigger than that of an individual.

“We, therefore, advise anybody that has built on the track or somewhere within the limit of a right of way to remove the structure because we will not sacrifice the interest of a larger majority of Nigerians on individual bias,” he said.
