he Nigeria Railway Corporation (NRC) has suspended the 8am train service from Ujevwu in Delta State to Itakpe in Kogi State.
TheNewsGuru.com (TNG) reports the suspension is effective from January 17 due to technical glitches.
However, Mr Fidet Okhiria, NRC’s Managing Director said that measures were in place to rectify the issues at the earliest possible time.
“This is to inform the general public and most especially our esteemed passengers that due to technical hitches the 08:00hrs train from Ujevwu station will not run from tomorrow Jan.17. The 14:15hrs train will, however, continue to run.
“Be assured that every effort is being made to ensure that this disruption is for a minimal period of time. We regret any inconveniences this may cause our esteemed passengers,” he said.
