Transport Minister, Rotimi Amaechi inspects the trains
The Federal Government has planned to increase train ticket for Abuja-Kaduna route, after Thursday’s commissioning of additional coaches by President Muhammadu Buhari, according to Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi.
“There are two things I know the president likes, I have mentioned one, the second one, is after commissioning even the passengers agree that the cost of transportation to Kaduna via the railway is a bit too cheap.
“So there will be a need to increase the price of the cost and then there will be more comfort. More comfort in the sense that when you have excess seats multiply by the number of passengers that will come, then anybody that wants to racketeer will have to eat the tickets himself,” the minister said on Tuesday.
