Abuja-Kaduna train: FG gives conditions for resuming operations

Transport Minister Mu’azu Sambo says appropriate technology would be installed before resuming train operations on Abuja- kaduna route.

He said during a familiarisation visit to the Idu and Kubwa train stations on Tuesday in Abuja, that there was the need to ensure necessary measures were taken to avoid reoccurrence of the March 28 train attack.

”First and foremost, it is very important to get those Nigerians that were kidnapped reunited with their families, otherwise it will be seen as if government is not sensitive.

”Whereas government is not only sensitive, but government is doing everything it can to make sure that those who have been affected by this unfortunate incident are reunited with their families.
