He said;


“I want to apologise to Nigerians for what happened at the Abuja-Kaduna rail station.


“We now have new locomotives and we have called the Chinese because we never expected the mechanical fault at this early stage.


“On behalf of the Federal Government, the ministry, and the Nigerian Railway Corporation, we apologise to Nigerians and I have instructed the NRC to fix it or invite the Chinese.


“If this is happening now, then they should bring back our old locomotives, it will just affect turnaround times because we get the new locomotive to increase the turnaround time.”
