FG Launches Freight Services On Apapa-Ibadan Cargo Rail

The Minister of Transportation, Saidu Alkali, on Tuesday, launched the first cargo freight from the Lagos-Ibadan rail corridor during his first official tour of the rail corridor.

The minister kicked off the tour at the Ebute Meta station before proceeding to Apapa for the launch, then travelled to Ibadan using the 157 km rail corridor, Channels Television reports.

Three coaches of 30 wagons were loaded as the inaugural freight movement was kicked off.

The Nigerian Railway Corporation (NRC) said it would start with three coaches per day with its Managing Director (MD) noting that the corporation had the capacity to scale up the numbers.

This effort is expected to decongest the Apapa port.
