trainChairman of the Board of Nigerian Railway Corporation, NRC, Alhaji Bamanga Tukur, has assured that train services linking four states of Enugu, Ebonyi, Abia and Rivers would commence before the end of the year.

Speaking while inspecting ongoing projects on the Port Harcourt-Enugu rail line yesterday, Tukur said: “I believe with what I saw on ground, train services may commence before the end of this year so that Nigerians will begin to enjoy what we used to have before now. Our railway has come alive again; the Bridge No.15, which nature brought down, has been rehabilitated. It is a thing of joy that the transformation agenda of the president through the SURE-P, all the railway projects abandoned for years have been brought back to life with the help of the programme”.

Also speaking, the Managing Director of NRC, Mr. Adesiyi Sijuwade, said “train services from Port Harcourt, particularly Port Harcourt mass transit, starting from Diobu, Elewon, Trans-Amadi to Imo River would be running on daily basis when completed.

“Ultimately, train will then start moving to Umuahia, Aba and Enugu. Our intention is also to have the services to Gombe and when the insurgency stops, it would be extended to Maiduguri”.
