President Muhammadu Buhari has commissioned the $1.457 billion Abuja- Kaduna rail services. The President at the commissioning at Idu Station in Abuja on Tuesday said that the federal government would link all states and commercial centres in the country with rail lines.

The 186.5 km standard gauge track built by the China Railway Construction Corporation has double lines. The Abuja-Kaduna route has nine stations and the train can travel at up to 150km per hour.
