Upsetting Video Of The Train System in Nigeria

Do you know that Nigeria Railways network was the largest on the continent at independence? We had pride in using our railways back then, but due to poor maintenance and management which led to lack of investment from investors, private firm even the government, has made our railways have little or no impact in the transportation of TODAY

The Nigeria Railway Corporation (NRC) is 114 years old, but has nothing to offer at the moment but the Minister of Transport, Senator Idris Umar talked on how the federal government is trying to lift the Nigeria Railway Act of 1955, to allow states and private sector participation in rail business which will enable and facilitate private sector investment into the sector.

Do you know that the Nigerian Railway System actually commenced rail business activities with the construction of the first rail line from Lagos to Ibadan (193km) between 1898 and 1901? 

Do you think private sector should come to the aid of our railway system?
