The Minister after embarking on a supervisory train ride from the Idu train station in Abuja to the Kubwa station stated categorically that all prospective passengers for the trains must have a valid national identity cards for security purposes.

“We want to know the identity of who is boarding the train.We are going to work with the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) to ensure strict compliance with the directive.”

He explained that the reason why the rail operations can not take off immediately is because they also had to take into consideration the religious obligations of the President, so that he can be invited to officially flag-off the operations.

  1. Abuja- Kaduna railway… a legacy of President Goodluck Jonathan. Shame Mr Amaechi did not have the courtesy to mention this. For the records!

  2. Like the efforts invested by this admin in continuity from the previous admin to get this rail service going. Keep it up and ensure best safety and security standards are put in place.

  3. Thanks to GEJ administration, a man like Ameachi who cannot complete a monorail of 1km. Taking vain glory ……..I laugh
