Cattle Movement By Rail To Resume Soon – NRC by ItsTutsi(m): 11:43am On Jul 10
The railway corporation said rail services for the movement of cows and other goods would resume with the Warri-Itakpe route.

The Nigerian Railway Corporation (NRC) says herders and traders can soon move their cows from northern Nigeria to the country’s southern region using rail services.

NRC Managing Director, Fidet Okhiria, disclosed this on Channels Television’s The Morning Brief breakfast show on Wednesday, hours after President Bola Tinubu announced the creation of a new ministry for livestock development.
He said the movement of cows and other goods would resume with the Warri-Itakpe route. The NRC, famous for passenger traffic, had in 2017 suspended the movement of cattle by train following technical hitches.


However, Okhiria said in a matter of one or two months, herders would be able to move their cattle on the Warri-Itakpe train services. Itakpe is a town in Kogi State in North Central Nigeria while Warri is located in Delta State in the South-South geopolitical zone of the country.

He said the NRC would modernise the movement of goods in the country “so that when they come by road from the north, they can move them by rail to South-South Warri”.

Okhiria said the NRC has brought in some wagons that can mobilise livestock and they are being assembled in the Kajola area of Oyo State in the South-West.
“We’ve built 15 wagons for livestock and maybe in the next month or two months, they would be deployed from Itakpe to Warri to drive the economy,” the NRC boss stated.
‘Efficient Rail Services Boost Economy’

He said investment in railways should be for the social and economic benefits of the people and not profit-oriented in naira and kobo.
“You are not developing transportation because you want to make profit in terms of naira and kobo but the profit will come indirectly if we can move goods and link cities,” he said.

According to him, the indirect earnings might not be directly to the government but it would flow into the economy.
Okhiria said investment in rail infrastructure should be for the public good and to make lives comfortable for the masses to have a robust and vibrant economy.

Nigerians can't move freely on bad roads that litter the country, but cows will soon be enjoying rail transportation. No problem, but hope there will be AC for the cows

Matter of fact, rail is preferred for heavy cargo movement.
All these heavy duty trucks and tankers plying the roads significantly contribute to the terrible condition of our roads.

The North has finally been tamed.

They want to continue to live as though they are in the 1500, but things have changed.

What they do not understand is that, ranching is even more profitable than herding... But they've been too emotional about the whole thing.

Hope you are hearing it now ?

Not when Ebonyi fully developes its intra-state railway you’ll start to ask is it self sustainable ?🤦

As if many little countries in Eastern Europe with population of Ebonyi don’t have intra-state trains within their state even though there is not much profit.

As if govt shouldn’t invest in economy through infrastructure

As if a people don’t deserve infrastructure until they are rich.

Re: Cattle Movement By Rail To Resume Soon – NRC by RhinoChest: 12:36pm On Jul 10
Good initiative by NRC.

It should be extended to other food items too.

As the facilities improve, there should be chilled wagons to move perishable food across the country.

Great leaders don’t run from problems, they embrace and find solutions to it.

God bless NRC leadership.

God bless the president

Re: Cattle Movement By Rail To Resume Soon – NRC by MasterTeeUSA: 12:56pm On Jul 10
Tamed as how...they got exactly what they wanted. The Myetti Allah called for this weeks ago. They want the govt to assign funds to the Ministry, invest in land acquisition or work with the Govs, build the ranches and set up the system, then they will use it. They dont want to do all these or take on the Govs. I am sure that is their positon. Every year now, funds will be assigned to this Ministry for them to use. Like farmers, if they lose cattles, they wil want compensation, subsidy for feeds like fertilizers, subsidy for veterinary care and so on. The North won.

ONE THING THEY FORGET IS THAT THIS IS NOT MILITARY EAR.



U CANNOT JUST MOVE INTO OTHER PEOPLE SPACE LIKE CRIMINALS.


IF THE PRESIDENT WAS A WARRI MAN, HE CAN TAKE THAT DECISION.



AS TINUBU IS HELL BENT ON SUCKING FULANI BLOKUS, I THINK YORUBA LAND AND SW REGION IS THE BEST PLACE FOR THE COWS TO ARRIVE BY RAILWAY.



SE IS A WARZONE, FULANI CANNOT GO THERE, WE WILL NOT GIVE THEM ANY WARNING BEFORE WE FINISH THEIR COWS.



NA LIKE THIS WE GO DEY ARRIVE AND DISAPPEAR.

No. TRANSPORTING cow or beef is a different matter from cows FORAGING for food. So we still need to find a solution that one.

Looks like the only probem you people have in this your country is cow..always devising the best for cows, meanwhile no plans for humans. spits
