Why we are resuming Lagos-Kano train service Sept 3 – NRC

The management of the Nigerian Railway Corporation (NRC) has announced plans to resume the operation of passenger train service from Lagos to Kano on Friday, Sept. 3.

The Corporation’s Lagos District Manager, Mr Jerry Oche, confirmed the development in a statement.

The corporation had put the scheduled resumption of the Lagos-Kano narrow gauge train service on hold, following a washout at the Osogbo end of the rail track.

The affected track links Offa, Ilorin and Osogbo.

Oche  in the statement issued through the Deputy Public Relations Officer, Mrs Khadijah Aroyewun-Adekomaiya said in the statement that the passenger train would leave Iddo Terminus in Lagos at noon and the service would be available every Friday.

He said: “This service is convenient, safe and relatively cheap. All major rules and regulations guiding the trains remain, especially in the area of nose mask usage and hand washing practice.”
