Nigeria Railway Corporation To Start Trip On Aba-Port Harcourt, Lagos-Kano-Kaduna By Second Quarter

Plans have been finalized by the Nigeria Railway Corporation, or NRC, to begin night operations by the second quarter of 2024.

This was revealed in a recent interview with NAN by Fidet Okhiria, the Managing Director of NRC.

But he claimed that the main obstacle to starting night operations is insecurity.

“Night operations are what are limiting us, and that is not the way trains should operate,” he said. The train is designed to run continuously. Although many would prefer to go in the evening, we are only able to do it during the day due to the nation’s security conditions.

Because of the dry ports, we plan to resume passenger and freight trains from Port-Harcourt to Aba, Lagos to Kano, and Kaduna.

“On the Lagos-Ibadan, Warri-Itakpe, and Abuja-Kaduna train routes, we are going to increase the number of trips to six. This means that there will be three trips per day, three times to and three times from.”

“The travels will start before 2024’s second quarter.” They are currently making four journeys overall, two up and two down, according to Okhiria.
