NRC Will Start Operating at Night

By 2024’s second quarter, the Nigeria Railway Corporation NRC intends to start operating at night.

The NRC’s managing director, Fidet Okhiria, made this revelation on Monday in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria.

He started, “What is limiting us is the night operations, and that is not the way trains should operate. The train is meant to operate at all times. People may like to travel in the evening, but because of the security situation in the country, we limit ourselves to the daytime.

“We intend to bring back passenger and freight trains from Port-Harcourt to Aba, Lagos to Kano, and Kaduna because of the dry ports,” Okhiria said.

This simply implies that the corporation will start operating six rail journeys each day on the standard gauge train throughout the board, according to the NRC DG.

He said, “We are going to increase the number of train trips to six on Lagos-Ibadan, Warri-Itakpe, and Abuja-Kaduna, which means the trips will be three times to and three times fro, making six trips in a day.

“The trips will commence before the second quarter of 2024. Right now, they are running four trips—two up and two down across the board.
