President Muhammadu Buhari has promised that his administration will link all states of the federation, well as major commercial centres by rail.

He spoke on Tuesday at the commissioning of the Abuja-Kaduna rail project.

    The President said the new rail line would significantly enhance and provide affordable and safe movement of passengers and freight between the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, and Kaduna State.

    He noted that the train operation would also serve as a major catalyst for industrialisation and generation of employment.

    He later took a train ride from the main station at Idu to Kubwa, a satellite town in the FCT.

    The Abuja-Kaduna rail project was initiated by Goodluck Jonathan-led administration and works were already at an advanced stage before the coming of a new government.
