Shortage of diesel is causing the Abuja – Kaduna train service

The Nigerian Railways Company, NRC, has apologized for the delay in the Abuja-Kaduna train movement on Monday.

Pascal Norley, Director of the Abuja-Kaduna Train Service (AKTS) issued a statement following complaints from passengers.

Nunurli explained that the delay was due to a shortage of diesel supplies.

He said the AGO received fell short of the required standard and was flatly rejected after a legal lab test.

The manager said testing is being done on all fluids “used on rolling stock, including locomotives, to ensure the correct specification is used.”

The statement confirmed that operations will return to normal because the administration was at the helm of the situation.

Abuja-Kaduna train service resumed on December 5, 2022, after more than eight months of calm in the aftermath of a terrorist attack.

About 14 people were killed and at least 63 people were kidnapped on 28 March 2022 in Katri, Kaduna State. The last batch of 23 captives was released in October after 7 were released in July.
