In another tweet, the NRC mentioned that major repairs have been completed on the damaged portions of the Kano-Lagos narrow gauge, indicating the imminent restoration of express train services on the route.

The tweet highlighted that the narrow-gauge train services would be fully back in operation for the benefit of the Nigerian masses and the easy transportation of goods and services in the country.

Previously, Fidet Okhiria, the Managing Director of the N.R.C, had disclosed plans to lay tracks on damaged portions of the Kano-Lagos narrow gauge corridor.

He also mentioned the successful relocation of locomotives and wagons to Minna, destined for Kaduna, in preparation for restoring operations on the Kano-Lagos corridor.

The NRC had initially projected the commencement of express train services on the Kano-Lagos corridor before the end of December 2023, but this timeline was not met.

An official statement from the N.R.C regarding the resumption date for express train services on the Kano-Lagos narrow gauge railway is expected in the coming days.
