The minister of transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, has said that the Abuja-Kaduna rail line cannot run faster that 90 kilometres per hour because “we don’t want to kill cow.
According to him, there are cows everywhere between Abuja to Kaduna and the ministry does not want to kill cows any longer with the locomotives.
The minister said the last time the rail ran 100 kilometres per hour, that it killed many cows.
He said because the owners of the cows would come to the ministry to ask that it pay for cows the rail killed, he has therefore decided that the rail will run not above 90 kilometres per hour.
“We are doing 90km/h with Abuja to Kaduna, the reason we are doing 90km/h is because there are cows everywhere, and we don’t want to kill cows.
The other day they tried 100 and they killed how many cows, and they said ‘you people should replace the cows you killed.
“From that day, I have said let us maintain the 90km/h; at 120km/h you get to Kaduna in one hour.
You can work in Kaduna and live in Abuja. It was initially one, but now, we have done four locomotives with 14 coaches
