By Victor Ahiuma-Young

ORGANIZED Labour has commended the Federal Government over massive investment in the rail system, saying it will boost employment generation among others.

Speaking through the General Secretary of the National Union of Textile, Garment and Tailoring Workers of Nigeria, NUTGTWN, and Vice- President, IndustriALL Global Union, African Region, Issa Aremu, he said: “I now travel happily from Kaduna to Abuja frequently, thanks to return of Railway, which started with former President Jonathan’s administration but has been given a big push by President Muhammadu Buhari’s commendable ambitious targets. We must commend the return of railway as enunciated by the President . The Abuja – Kaduna route will be boosted by additional rolling stock and will be able to handle one million commuters annually.

“With Lagos-Kano Standard Gauge Railway to be completed in 2021, hundreds of thousands of jobs to be created and million passengers per year and million tons of cargo to be transported every year, President Buhari is truly set to diversify the economy and reinvent development. By the same year, the Port Harcourt to Maiduguri line covering Aba, Owerri, Umuahia, Enugu, Awka, Abakaliki, Makurdi, Lafia, Jos, Bauchi, Gombe, Yola and Damaturu would be completed.

The Abuja to Itakpe line through Baro and terminate in Warri with construction of a new seaport at Warri, the construction of other railway lines, firstly from Kano to Maradi in Niger Republic passing through Kazaure, Daura, Katsina, Jibia to Maradi and Lagos to Calabar. The “Coastal Rail” through Ore, Benin, Agbor, Asaba, Onitsha, Sapele, Ughelli, Warri, Yenagoa, Otuoke, Port Harcourt, Aba, Uyo and Calabar would have been completed.”
