    This administration is very wicked and insensitive. How a government will prefer commissioning of train coaches to visiting people of Benue that mourning their love one killed by Fulani herdsmen.

    • Onye Obosi

      are you well at all?
      stop boxing with your shadow.

      • Julius

        No, he won’t. He can’t help himself. His ilks see nothing good in anything, it’s negativity all their lives. Feel sorry for them abeg.

      With all due respect, many fellow citizens die across the country daily especially because of pervasive corruption in the land but, I don’t hear you call on Nigerians to go out on the streets to express support the government’s fight on corruption. As unfortunate as it is with regards to the senseless deaths in Benue, I think we should continue to support this Government to take us out of the nightmare we are in as a country.

        How can a clueless and insensitive administration take you out of the wood. Please stop blind support of this administration and truthful for once in your life.

        There is a whole world of difference between preaching against corruption and fighting corruption.

  • Du Covenant

    While this is a welcome development, I am worried to see the structures built as stations for these trains. With so many opportunities lost to build proper infrastructures for ourselves, these stations do not look solid enough to stand for decades to come. With our attitude towards maintenance in general, it is my desire we begin to make bold statements by building structures that stand for centuries as others have done in their countries. Continuity is definitely not in our DNA so, when we build, it should be big and solid not temporary anymore!.

    Development of north continues while the oil producing regions that foot the bills suffer in penury. Jonathan I blame you a lot because you squandered the opportunity to develop your region and other southern regions.

  • Steve

    I hope they spread this development to other parts of the country. Freight rail is one of the biggest revenue earners in the US, if only nigeria will develop and maintain its rail system, it will make a lot of difference for the economy.

  • Mizch

    Here they will not blame Jonathan for building a railway for the Northerners.

    • Eluba Inas

      Jonathan failed to build railway for anybody, so what is your beef?

      • ed

        He built the Abuja to Kaduna railway.

        • Musbau Hamzat

          The project started during Obasanjo

          • Eluba Inas

            And he never finished it. Buhari completed it.

  • Dan Arewa

    If you are not happy, go and hug an electric transformer.

  • thusspokez

    The seats on the train are too narrow even for two skinny men like Buhari and El Rufai.

    • Eluba Inas

      Are you serious that is your complain?

      • thusspokez

        What is your problem?

  • realist

    Why serious nations are commissioning state of the art trains that spent just 15 minutes are hour, our president is commissioning mere coaches. Is it not shameful?

  • ed

    The Northern Nigerian focus President is on the job. He will continue to talk about paper projects all over the southern part.

  • Bishop Fidel Obi Boateng

    Even at that a visionary leader would not try resurrecting the dead 15th century locomotive coaches, when as far back as twenty years ago, countries far poorer than Nigeria were on bullet trains, ie; Singapore, Malaysia etc. What a set back!

    • Musbau Hamzat

      Locomotive is the general name for machine that pull the coaches of train. whether new invention or old invention. electric power or coal, the general name is locomotives

      • Bishop Fidel Obi Boateng

        See the date i put up teacher and answer yourself.
