LIVE BLOG: Premium Times Train Trip Kano – Lagos (The Return)

A Nigerian train coach named after former president, Goodluck Jonathan.

Did you enjoy our last Train Trip from Lagos to Kano? Here is the Return Trip.

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 Monday (today) and bring you live accounts of the train ride back from Kano to Lagos.
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.
