Nigeria: Governor Advocates Road to Rail

Gov. Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State has said that a functional rail system will reduce road carnage and the attendant loss of lives and property caused by heavy vehicles. 

The governor stated this when members of the Senate Committee on works paid him a courtesy call in his office.

He said that lack of rail system had caused great problems to Nigerian roads, noting that unless there was much planning, the government would continue to waste funds.

“Even though it is absolutely necessary to repair the roads, that is not a lasting solution. 

The lasting solution is to develop our railway system so that heavy vehicles will be reduced.
