Nigeria's Min. Of Transportation Amaechi Says Train Services Will Stop If Passengers Continue Flouting COVID-19 Protocol.


Nigeria's Minister of transportation Rotimi Amaechi who was guest on Nigeria Television Authority (NTA) breakfast programme on Monday, said train services will be halted if passengers continue to flout existing covid 19 protocols..








He said the Abuja-Kaduna service alone conveys about 4,000 people daily, hence the high risk of spreading the disease.

The minister said citizens must learn how to live with COVID-19, and that face masks must be worn by everyone on board any service.


“If the Lagos-Ibadan passengers flout the COVID protocols, we will stop the train [services]. Don’t forget that we convey about 4,000 passengers in a day on the Abuja-Kaduna rail line,” he said.

“Now, imagine that about 20 persons have coronavirus. They can transmit the same to the entire 4,000 passengers. If we take 2,000 to Abuja and 2,000 to Kaduna, the rate of transmission will be very high. We can’t continue that way.


“The same is applicable to Lagos. For us, we insist that everybody must obey the protocols. Wear your mask throughout the journey till you step down.
As far as we are concerned, we need to learn how to live with COVID-19. I really want to congratulate those that achieve this feat.”


He also said the rise in the number of COVID-19 cases has delayed the inauguration of the Lagos-Ibadan service.
