Rotimi Amaechi: Minister of Transportation

On the train station, Amaechi ordered security personnel at the Abuja-Kaduna train station terminus to deny access to anyone without a face mask, to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.

On the increased transportation, Amaechi said the government does not have money to subsidise the fare, so passengers would have to bear the risk.

He added :“Even before the pandemic, we were under pressure from even people in kaduna asking us to increase the rate.

“We just provide the services for everybody not because we want to make profit. At this stage we are not making profit, its just to recoup the running cost.

The minister further said that incidences of eminent personalities flouting NIgeria Centre for Disease Control’s (NCDC) COVID-19 safety measures at airports would not be condoned at train stations.

He encouraged passengers to imbibe the simple, safety basics, saying “protecting ourselves against COVID-19 takes no special training.”
