Economic Zones, State Capitals To Be Linked By Rail – Buhari

PRESIDENT Muhammadu Buhari has promised to link all the economic zones and state capitals across the country by rail.

This according to him, would help to facilitate businesses and human movement.

Mr. Buhari stated this on Thursday in Kaduna while commissioning two locomotives and 10 executive passenger coaches procured by the Nigerian Railway Corporation (NRC), to be deployed on the Abuja-Kaduna train service.

He also ordered that the concession for the narrow gauge to General Electric should be completed.

The president also promised to ensure all the other railway expansion projects are executed.

He said the railway laws will be amended to provide private sector in railways.
