The Nigerian Railway Corporation (NRC) has rescinded the earlier decision to shut down train services nationwide.
The corporation had in a statement by its spokesman, Yakub Mahmood, announced the shutdown of all passenger train services with effect from Monday due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
It said the board and management of the corporation approved the shutdown, which affects all train services including the Abuja-Kaduna service.
Mahmood, however, said on Saturday that the board and management had reviewed the situation and decided to provide passengers train services with certain conditions.
According to him, passengers would provide full names, address, date of birth and means of identity.
“We enjoin all passengers to please cooperate with any other measures put in place to protect ourselves from ourselves,” the statement said.
