Abuja-Kaduna Rail Line Currently Makes N1m Daily
By chisom nwani

The Abuja to Kaduna rail line now generates one million Naira daily, Minister of Transportation Mr Rotimi Amaechi disclosed. In an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Tuesday in Benin, Amaechi said that the feat was because of the

increase in passengers that patronise the rail. He attributed the passenger surge to the security challenges faced by commuters along the route. “We are spending N56 million per month, we are getting back only N16 million. Now there is an

improvement; we now make N30 million, (that is) one million Naira per day. “The improvement started last month because of increase in passengers because of the kidnapping on the road,” he said. The minister said that government was using the

previously generated revenues on the maintenance of the coaches and other logistics. Amaechi said that government would address the issue of touting at the Idu rail station with the expected arrival of 10 more coaches by October.

He, however, disclosed that the arrival of the new coaches would require more resources for maintenance in order to meet customers’ expectations.NAN recalls that the Abuja-Kaduna rail line commenced commercial operation in July 2016.
