The Nigerian Railway Corporation says it has rehabilitated 117 engines and coaches.
Represented by the Director of Operations, Niyi Ali, the managing director attributed the successful restoration of train services in parts of the country to the “ingenuity of the corporation’s engineers and technicians”.
In his remarks, the Niger Commissioner for Transport, Abubakar Ahmed, appealed to the federal government to rehabilitate and upgrade the Baro railway line.
“We are aware that the federal government is dredging the Baro River and the road there is terribly bad. So we are calling on the federal government to rehabilitate and upgrade the Baro railway station to aid the movement of people and goods,” he said.
He said that the state government is working with the railway corporation to enhance rail services in the state.
