The Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, has apologized to Nigerian Citizens for the breakdown on the Abuja-Kaduna rail locomotives which occurred between November 18 and November 20.
Amaechi made the plea at the Moniya rail station on Monday during the routine inspection of the Ibadan’s ongoing rail project.
Ameachi also said that he has called the Chinese to fix it because the Federal government never expected any mechanical fault at this early stage.
The Minister said, “I want to apologize to Nigerians over what happened at the Abuja-Kaduna rail station.
“We now have new locomotives, and we’ve called the Chinese because we never expected the mechanical fault at this early stage.
“On behalf of the Federal Government, the ministry, and the Nigerian Railway Corporation (NRC), we apologize to Nigerians, and I’ve 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 just affect turnaround times because we get the new locomotive to increase the turnaround time.”
