Passengers and passersby have expressed relief and satisfaction as the Nigerian Railway Corporation, NRC, on Thursday, resumed mass transit train services along the Ijoko-Iddo, Ogun, Lagos State, respectively.
Recall, NRC suspended daily train services, including mass transit train operations on the narrow gauge from Ijoko, Ogun to Iddo and Apapa in Lagos State in September 2019.
The corporation had informed its customers that the suspended train services would resume on November 15, 2019, but failed to meet the target based on some logistic constraints.
The District Manager of NRC in Lagos, Mr Jerry Oche, had earlier on Wednesday, said that the operation, would resume on Thursday, January 23,2020, with one return trip daily from Kajola in Ogun to Iddo in Lagos.
According to him, “We hope to resume the Lagos mass transit tomorrow, Thursday. We will start with just one return trip tomorrow. A return trip for us is to and fro.
