- Abuja-Kaduna Train Service Won’t Resume Today– Minister
The Abuja-Kaduna train service will not resume today as originally planned, according to the minister of transportation, Mu’azu Jaji Sambo.
The comes on hours after it was revealed that the Abuja-Kaduna Train would resume operations today.
The resumption will be delayed by one week, according to the minister, who made this announcement while riding an inspection train from Abuja to Kaduna yesterday.
This will give the passengers more time to learn about the new method for buying tickets and other requirements.
The line is fully secured and prepared for operation, the minister added, but due to the new ticketing requirements, a brief extension of time may be necessary, possibly by a few days or even a few weeks.
He stated, “I want to be very clear about this: We have not stated that the train services will begin on Monday,” so it is unclear if they will or won’t.
Before you purchase a ticket, we now have a new system in place. You must profile yourself by giving a phone number and a national identification number when purchasing a ticket because that is where the security checks start.
So, whenever a train moves from one station to another, we always know who is on board.
You cannot board our train if you do not have a NIN. That is how easy it is. If you are a minor, an adult must pay for you and register you; additionally, an adult may only register up to four minors at a time.
“Now, we want to provide enough time for the Nigerian people to hear these and adapt to this new system? Because a lot of people will be upset if we start on Monday.
