The Nigerian Railway Corporation (NRC) has apologised to passengers that boarded the Abuja-Kaduna train, which broke down due to failed locomotive along the route on Friday.
The Managing Director of NRC, Mr Fidet Okhiria, in a statement on Saturday, pledged that NRC would ensure that there was no recurrence of such incident in the future.
He also assured Nigerians that the failed locomotive would be fully operational on Monday.
“The locomotive’s turbocharger failed and we apologise for that. We are working hard to avoid such occurrences in future and by Monday, the train service would be operational,” he said.
It would be recalled that on Friday, an Abuja-Kaduna train broke down, leaving several passengers along the route stranded.
