Train Passengers To Provide NIN From May

The Managing Director of NRC, Fidet Okhiria, in a statement on Thursday, said intending railway passengers should get their NIN ready as it will be a requirement from May.

According to him, the NIN would be needed to enhance profiling of passengers, adding that it would also enhance safety and security of rail users.

“The process of linking passengers to their NIN for improved profiling is ongoing. This layer of passenger screening will commence by May,” he said.

He said the AbujaKaduna Train Service (AKTS) would resume as soon as possible with additional security measures put in place.

KanyiDaily recalls that the NRC had suspended the train operations along the Abuja-Kaduna route following a deadly attack by bandits.
