Minister of Transport, Rotimi Amaechi accompanied by the chairman of APC John Odigie-Oyegun, yesterday carried out final inspection on the Abuja – Kaduna railway, declaring that the project is ready for commissioning by President Buhari on July 26th.

Speaking at the Idu station of the rail line in Abuja, Amaechi said

“We are ready to go. From the things we have seen, we are set to go. This test run exercise has been on for over a month. We said it was going to run for two weeks but we allowed it for six weeks so that everybody can use it.”

According to him, the trains will be open for business immediately after the commissioning.

“We are targeting that from Tuesday after the president must have flagged off the Abuja-Kaduna rail, we will then begin to charge passengers.”

Amaechi who sought the opinion of the passengers before fixing the fare said, “They suggested 500 on economy and I will do that".
