Nigerian Railway workers embark on a 3-day strike
Thousands of Nigerian railway workers have gone on strike for three days to press the government to improve their working conditions.
The protest is expected to affect services at several of the busiest stations, including the railway route that connects Kaduna state in northern Nigeria to Abuja, the capital.
According to reports, the industry is anticipated to lose roughly 90 million Naira ($200,000; £148,000) during the strike.
Despite the fact that many Nigerians use railways, road transit remains the most popular means of transportation.
The Nigeria rail sector can help to drive economic activities if Government gives it the necessary attention.
A commercial state like Lagos where the majority uses, road transit to go about their day to day activities, will benefit immensely from a fully functional rail network.
