See why FG Warns Citizen Without NIN Will not Board Train By May
The Managing Director of the Nigerian Railway Corporation, Mr Fidet Okhiria, said that Nigerians intending to travel by rail should get their National Identity Number ready as it would be a requirement from May 2022.

The commission disclosed in Abuja on Thursday that the NIN would be needed to enhance the profiling of passengers, which he said would also enhance the safety and security of rail users.

This move may not be unconnected to the recent terror attack on an Abuja-Kaduna bound train, where many passengers were killed and injured, with hundreds yet displaced – purportedly abducted by the yet-unidentified suspected terrorists.

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