The coordinator said this after a series of passenger complaints along the Warri-Itakpe rail route.
“This will be reduced with the introduction of electronic ticketing, which will appear soon.
“The head office has announced this and offers have been submitted. The selection and award of the project is likely to be made this year.
“We are also making efforts to strengthen the train with two additional cars of 88 passengers per car. This is expected to reduce the number of passengers without seats, ”added Sanni.
It reports that despite the complaints of the passengers, there is a video clip that circulates in the media where passengers are seen along the route stuck and stopped on a train heading to Kogi.
A passenger who was on board the train, Gloria Ali, expressed her displeasure that passengers paid the same amount to be transported to a place where only a few sat while most were standing.
“The train was full, even some passengers were standing at the door and you can imagine that they all paid the same fair share.
“This is heartbreaking. And I am sure that some passengers who use this medium for the first time today will have a horrible experience of the trip.
“I pray that the appropriate neighborhoods will do something as soon as possible about this situation, as it requires great concern,” he said.
