Nigerians who suffered long after the Kaduna-Abuja train breakdown have received a response from the federal government.
Rotimi Amaechi, the Minister of Transport, has apologized.
Let us remember that the Abuja-Kaduna railway locomotives broke down between November 18 and 20, leaving many passengers stranded.
Ameachi placed the order at the Moniya train station on Monday during the routine inspection of the ongoing rail project in Ibadan.
He also said that he had called in the Chinese to fix it because the government never expected any mechanical failure at this early stage.
Ameachi said: “I want to apologize to the Nigerians for what happened at the Abuja-Kaduna train station.
“Now we have new locomotives and we have called in the Chinese because we never expected mechanical failure at this early stage.
“On behalf of the Federal Government, the ministry and the Nigerian Railways Corporation (NRC), we apologize to the Nigerians and have instructed the NRC to fix it or invite the Chinese.
“If this is happening now then they should bring back our old locomotives, it will only affect the response times because we get the new locomotive to increase the response time.”
