The Minister of Transportation, Mr Chubuike Amaechi, was on Thursday ambushed by passengers of Abuja-Kaduna rail line who persuaded him to bring down the train fare to N500 for economy class from the N600 it pegged it at with first class going for N900. Amaechi submitted to the plea of the passengers who were at the stations in their numbers. He reduced the train ticket from N600 for economy to N500. Amaechi was at the station with a team of All Progressives Congress (APC) including National Chairman of Chief John Odigie Oyegun. The team led by Amaechi was on an inspection tour of the train from Idu station to Jere station and back to Idu in preparation for the flag-off of the Abuja-Kaduna rail line next Tuesday by President Muhammadu Buhari.
