Containers, Tankers Start Movement By Rail by titiloyeblog: 11:30am On May 07, 2019

Beginning from today (Tuesday) containers and oil tankers would start moving goods from Lagos ports through the newly acquired Railway wagons to the north.

The goods would move to the dry port in Kaduna in the North.

The transport minister Rotimi Amaechi had ordered some wagons for the Lagos-Ibadan railway for the purpose.

This measure was designed to ease traffic and gridlocks caused by heavy-duty vehicles from Lagos and roads.

The move to curb the perennial traffic jam in Apapa axis, the Nigeria Railway Corporation resolved to deploy the eighteen newly imported wagons for haulage from Apapa seaport.

The Managing Director, Nigeria Railway Corporation, NRC, Engineer Fidet Okhiria, disclosed that the newly acquired 18 wagons are to boost the inland container dry port business by moving cargos from Apapa seaport to dry ports in Kaduna and other states.

The NRC has the capacity to evacuate 20 footer and 40 footer containers from Apapa port to, Ijoko and Abeokuta, both in Ogun state and Omi-Adio railway depots, in Oyo state, for onward transfer by parked trucks.

The trucks would evacuate the containers by road to their various destinations which most often is either the inland dry port in Kaduna or Kano.

From Lagos to North and then since the bulk of businesses doing the importing is in the south. It moves from Lagos to Kaduna and back to Ogun state. Let's keep fooling ourselves.

Another opportunity for tinubu's account to shine!

His boys will be chasing the train coaches and hanging on the platform asking for "Owo mi da" N500 per coach. If you no pay, they signal their colleagues about 5km ahead that the train "driver" no gree drop o...

Then they will just throw iron rods, sticks and even Yoruba stew and fresh slippery ewedu all over the tracks and BOOM...the "defaulting train" will derail and topple over. Then you will see "railroad-gridlock" and govt will begin to think of another way to tackle it!

No be Lagos?

Step by step Mr. man. At least Lagos to Ogun up to Kaduna maintained their old narrow guage lines. What happened to our own, Aba to Meiduguri?

Indeed. When was the Kaduna inland port launched? This is why Paul preached that the liberty with Christian do ought to be appreciated.

Are you aware that River Niger will soon be dredged? The only thing holding that up is the 2nd Niger bridge.
This means that my cargo can sail directly to Onitsha and offload. We dont really need cargo train compared to the north with no river channels.
For now, I offloaded my last container Feb in Calabar. I don't understand the fuss about Lagos port.
