The Nigerian Railway Corporation (NRC) has announced that it has postponed the resumption of the Lagos –Kano rail service which was scheduled to resume on the 13th of August, citing a damaged rail track on its route.
This was disclosed in a statement by Mr Fidet Okhiria, Managing Director, NRC, on Thursday in Lagos.
The NRC boss said the “damage to the rail track was caused by a downpour around Power Line, Oshogbo, Osun, during the week.”
He added that a team of experts from NRC had already been sourced and were working round the clock to fix the damaged track. He stated that a new date for resumption of the Lagos-Kano Train Service would be announced soon.
