Rotimi Amaechi, minister of transportation, is currently in China to inspect some of the locomotives (trains) built for Nigeria by the China Civil Engineering Construction Corporation (CCRC).
Yesterday, I test-ran and took delivery of more trains in China to service the Abuja-Kaduna and Lagos-Ibadan rail lines. For those complaining that the trains are not enough, especially for the Abuja-Kaduna route, we heard cries, the trains are coming!
The 1st batch of new trains built for us by CRRC- 2 motored cars and 4 Locomotives. I have taken delivery & they would soon be in Nigeria. Work is ongoing on the 2nd batch of trains. The plan is to connect & unite the entire country by rail. Together, let’s ride to the #NextLevel
