The Nigerian Railways Corporation (NRC) has suspended its passenger train service from Abuja to Kaduna on Monday and Tuesday because of the Eid el-Kabir public holidays.

Yakub Mahmood, the Deputy Director, Public Relations of the NRC, made this known in Lagos on Saturday.

Mr. Mahmood said the period would also be used to carry out comprehensive maintenance of the train.

He assured passengers that the Abuja-Kaduna train service would resume on Wednesday.

“The corporation highly regrets any inconvenience this may cause our esteemed passengers,” he said.

The Abuja-Kaduna passengers train was inaugurated by President Muhammadu Buhari in July.

It connects Idu in Abuja to Rigasa in Kaduna.
