FG receives coaches, locomotives for Lagos-Ibadan, Abuja-Kaduna railways

The Federal Government on Monday announced that it had received some coaches and locomotives to be deployed on key rail lines in Nigeria.

It said the coaches were the last set which were ordered in March. It was also gathered that the locomotives and coaches, which arrived Nigeria from China, would be deployed once operations begin.

The government disclosed this via a tweet by the Nigerian Railway Corporation through its official Twitter handle, by the NRC’s spokesperson, Yakub Mahmood.

Mahmood said new locomotives and coaches for the Abuja-Kaduna rail line had arrived in the Federal Capital Territory.

He, however, noted that the trains would only be deployed for use when the government lifts the ban on interstate movement.
