Lagos-Kano train service resumes Friday

The Nigerian Railway Corporation said that it would resume the Lagos-Kano Mass Transit Train Services on Friday.

The Deputy Director, NRC Public Relations, Mr Mahmoud Yakub, disclosed this to the News Agency of Nigeria on Monday in Lagos.

Yakub said that the service was delayed because the rail track was washed away by rainfall.

“We are starting our service back on Friday, by God’s mercy,” he said.

Also, the Lagos Railway District Manager, Mr Jerry Oche, said the service of the Lagos-Kano was suspended due to washout at Oyun River in Kwara State.

“As I speak to you, the train is in Ibadan and it will go back to Kano on Friday.

“We have completed the rehabilitation of the track and our train operation will commence on Friday if the strike does not continue,” Oche said.

The RDM, however, apologised to the commuters for the suspension of the services, adding that NRC was working hard to make the train service a world class.
