Lagos-kano Train Service Resumes Friday by Blue3k2: 6:19pm On Nov 05, 2018
The Nigerian Railway Corporation, NRC, said that it would resume the Lagos-Kano Mass Transit Train Services, MTTS, on Friday.

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

Mr 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.

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

”The train which was supposed to come from Kano to Lagos on Sept. 1, was held back due to the washout.

”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.

NAN reports that the washout of the train tract happened on August 31 in Kwara State.

The looming strike is a big if. Hopefully after the G.E starts managing it things get better for commuters.

Who will use slow local train for transportation from Kano to Lagos. You want to spend a day on the train? It should be left for transporting agricultural produce like tomatoes and others from Kano to Lagos.

We are waiting for Amaechi to start Kano kaduna standard guage rail and by extension Kano Lagos rail for commuters.

Thats way to slow to travel. I though GE was going to bring faster locomotives for the nattow gauge. I cant remember where I read that though.
