FG government has started testing new trains imported from China, Transport Minister Rotimi Amaechi declared late Friday. 

Declaring this on his Twitter page, Amaechi said that the trial of the new trains on the recently concluded Itakpe to Warri railway lines has begun. 


Numerous individuals adulated Amaechi's endeavors as they remarked on the new streams he posted on his Twitter page. 

It has been very nearly three months since the Nigerian Railways (NRC) suspended its traveler trips between Abuja to Kaduna, Lagos to Ibadan and different sections of the alliance. 

The commission's appointee spokesman, Yakubu Mahmoud, made the declaration in an announcement discharged on Saturday, March 21, 2020. 

"The Nigeria Railways Board has chosen to suspend the main traveler departure from Monday, March 23, 2020." 

The choice was made because of the spread of Coronavirus. "Passengers will be advised at whatever point the choice is changed." 

It has been close to 30 days since President Muhammadu Buhari affirmed the installment of N123 billion for the Ibadan-Kano railway venture. 

Amaechi said there is a likelihood that the railway task will begin before August ends. 

The task, carried out by the Chinese government, will cost $ 5.3 billion. 

The project will be completed by China's Civil Engineering and Construction Corporation (CCECC). 

 


Reporting this in a meeting with Channels on Democracy Day, Amaechi lauded the Chinese government, which he said was assisting with modernizing the bureaucratic railway framework. 

As indicated by the minister, when the train began operating, the government was losing N46 million every month, but now it is making a benefit of N109 million to N110 million every month. 


Amaechi included that when the Ibadan-Kano trains would begin operating with the cargo sending.

there would be huge profits that would make it easier to pay the debts incurred.
