I've been convincing my friend in Abuja for a while to give Train ride a chance and he finally did today. cheesy
He got a cab from Zuba park in Abuja to Itakpe railway station for 5k and boarded the afternoon train.

There's an increase in railway tickets since 5th December,2022.
Formerly from Itakpe to Delta State;
Economy class is 3k.
First class is 5,500.

But now:
Economy class is 5k.
First class is 9k.

Federal Government wehdone oh. undecided


Pic 1: The former stamp showed 3k but Economy class is 5k now.

Pic 2: New price list.

Price 3: The crowd at Itakpe railway station today. Everyone's travelling for the holidays. cheesy

Hi there. It is not possible from Abuja to Lagos.

There's no route for that.

Hi folake4u
Sorry i had to quote you here. Been following your dairies and i must say you keep us verrrry entertained!
Saw you are interested in real estate from one of your entries. My inlaws have a 3 bedroom semi detached duplex with bq located at gaduwa estate in Abuja they want to sell.
Please any tips on how to go about getting a buyer and also, if you would be interested in helping out, businesswise of course.
We are in lagos and its been difficult trying to get buyers from here.
I'd really appreciate any advice you can give.

I'm here again to share my 2023 train ride experience. Abuja - Itakpe - Agbor - Benin

One of my friends was curious and wanted to have an adventure and voila! cheesy

We boarded a vehicle from Abuja to Itakpe, Kogi State for 6k. We left Zuba Park at 10am and got to Itakpe at 1:30pm.

Getting to Itakpe railway station, we met some "agberos" disguising as police officers and holding guns met us and pleaded we pay them money to get "tickets". In their words, you don't need to go to the counter to pay, we as police officers have slot in the train and you'd be assigned to us, we will sit with you guys.
My friend who's a JJC in train ride almost listened to them and so I asked them a question "How will we get the tickets then? "What are we going to show the ticketing officers when we board?"

It then dawned on them that I was a pro in train rides and so they left me alone. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
They wanted to persuade my friend too but he knew better from my body language. grin

We went to the counter and paid 5k for train tickets and showed our Nysรง ID cards too.
The desk officer say I nor resemble corper. grin
Wahala.

And then, it was time to check in. You can't baord without showing your train tickets. It was then my friend realized that those police officers wanted to scam us. Looool.

NB: For prospective train travellers, I beg you in the name of whatever you serve, DO NOT GIVE MONEY TO ANYBODY except the desk officer in charge of train tickets.

The train departed at 2pm and got to Agbor at 5:30pm.

PS: If you're hungry, the train staff sell snacks varying from sweet potato chips, cheeseballs, gala, fried peppered chicken, biscuits, drinks and codedly Action bitters. wink

At every train stop, you'd meet hawkers selling food, you can be quick and buy food from them too cos the train stops at every station to board or discharge passengers for about 10mins.

5:30pm: We arrived Agbor station and already the taxis going to Benin were full and passengers paid 3k-4k for the trip. We saw a vehicle going to Agbor town and we boarded that, paid N1,500. The driver dropped us at a park headed to Benin and we paid N1200 each.

Finally entered my house 9pm due to bad roads. cheesy
