How Diesel Shortage Delayed Abuja-Kaduna Train Service - NRC

Mr Pascal Nnorli, Manager, Service (AKTS), disclosed this while apologising to passengers in a statement.

Train services resumed on the route just last month after an eight-month suspension due to a terrorist attack, which claimed the lives of many and led to the abduction of several passengers.

The government had promised to improve its service delivery upon resumption.

Speaking on the latest development in Abuja, Nnorli said the delay was due to a shortage in the supply of diesel.

He also apologised to passengers for the corporation’s retarded services along the Abuja-Kaduna route on Monday.

“The management of the sincerely apologises to our esteemed customers who may have experienced a delay in our service on Monday, Jan. 23.

“The delay was caused by the supply of diesel/AGO, which fell short of the specification required to operate our rolling stock, which was out rightly rejected after statutory laboratory test.

“The compulsory laboratory test is carried out on all liquid that is used on the rolling stock, locomotives inclusive to ensure that the right specifications are utilised,’’ Nnorli said.

The manager thanked its passengers for continued patronage and pledged the commitment of the corporation to better services going forward
