RE: Abuja Kaduna Train Services (AKTS) resumes.

Sequel to our earlier Press Release No. 10 dated 16th May 2022 on the above caption, the General Public is kindly invited to note the Nigerian Railway Corporation (NRC) is announcing a shift in the resumption date for Abuja Kaduna Train services (AKTS). The Corporation apologizes for the delays in the resumption of the service. A new date will be announced soonest.

The NRC will continue to cooperate and collaborate with the Federal Government in its uncompromising mandate of protecting the territorial integrity and the internal security of Nigeria for safe guarding the lives and properties of its citizens especially as it concerns the rail sub-sector. In same vein, we once again identify with the relatives of those in captivity on the account of the recent attack on AKTS to be rest assured that the Federal Government is alive to its responsibility for the safe rescue of all persons being held hostage.

We therefore appeal, particularly to the relatives of persons held hostage to be patient and cooperate with the Corporation and the Security Agencies as the Federal Government is exploring all possible ways and means to ensure the safe release of their loved ones from captivity, soonest.

The NRC expresses it profound gratitude to the security agencies for the continued support.

Thank you and God bless Nigeria.
