The Nigeria Railway Corporation, NRC, has refuted speculations going around that the Abuja-Kaduna rail service will resume on 24 November.
The Managing Director of NRC, Fidet Okhiria, disclosed this to the News Agency of Nigeria, NAN.
Okhiria labelled the news has false and should be disregarded.
It will be recalled that the Abuja-Kaduna rail corridor was stopped due to a terrorist attack on 28 March, which led to the loss of lives and the kidnap of some passengers.
He said the federal government is making every crucial action to ensure it resumes before the end of November but a date has been fixed for the resumption.
”I wish to inform the general public that the news is false because a definite date has not yet been fixed.
”It is true that the Minister announced that we will resume services on that route this November and efforts are being made by all necessary quarters to ensure we resume before the end of November.
”I wish to reiterate the commitment of the Federal Government and the corporation to securing the lives and properties of our highly esteemed passengers and Nigerians,” he said.
