The Nigeria Railway Corporation, NRC says its facilities and environs is a no-mask-no-entry zone in preparation for the resumption of operations on Wednesday.

Abuja-Kaduna Train Service Manager Pascal Nnorli told journalists that the corporation has put measures in place to ensure passengers obeyed COVID-19 protocols on the trains.

However, the Nigerian Union of Railway Workers, NUR has also called on the authority to put safety and preventive guidelines in proper perspective before bringing the trains back on track.

The Union’s Secretary-General Segun Esan in a statement noted that safety of workers and passengers is paramount. He added that the union will not be disposed to whatever situations that will in any way undermine the health of workers and passengers.
