The Managing Director of the Nigerian Railway Corporation, NRC, Mr Fidet Okhiria, has said that the corporation will begin six train trips daily on the Standard Gauge Train across the board in 2024.
Okhiria disclosed this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, in Lagos on Monday.
“We are going to increase the number of train trips to six on Lagos-Ibadan, Warri-Itakpe, and Abuja-Kaduna, which means the trips will be three times to and three times fro, making six trips in a day. The trips will commence before the second quarter of 2024. Right now, they are running four trips—two up and two down across board.
“What is limiting us is the night operations, and that is not the way train should operate. Train is meant to operate at all times. People may like to travel in the evening, but because of the security situation in the country, we limit ourselves to daytime.
“We intend to bring back passenger and freight trains from Port-Harcourt to Aba, Lagos to Kano, and Kaduna because of the dry ports,” Okhiria said.
