Premium Times Train Trip Lagos – Kano (Live Blog)

Join the live reports of the train ride. After decades in the doldrums, the federal government, last December, revived the Lagos – Kano train route, to ease the transportation burden across the country.

The journey averages 33 hours and, like the other major train routes in Nigeria, has witnessed an impressive patronage since it began last December.

This is the first of the many north-south train routes that would, hopefully, unite the country again – a sort of a re-amalgamation of the north and the south, a railway official told PREMIUM TIMES.

PREMIUM TIMES will join the trip on Friday (today) and bring you live accounts of the train ride from Lagos to Kano.

The main objective of this trip is to observe the teething challenges, if any, and how efficient and convenient the journey is for the passengers.
