President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday commissioned the Abuja- Kaduna rail services.
Speaking at the train’s main station at Idu, Abuja, Mr. Buhari said the federal government would link all states and commercial centres in the country with rail lines.
The president later took a train ride from Idu to Kubwa, a suburb of Abuja.
Construction of the Abuja-Kaduna rail began under the administration of former President Goodluck Jonathan.
The project was implemented to an advanced stage before the end of that government.
