NRC Responds To Trending Video , Blames Fuel Gauge

The Nigerian Railway Corporation Has Revealed Fuel Guage Faulty, Not Reading Correctly. 

The Nigerian Railway Corporation (NRC) has reacted to a trending video showing how its standard gauge train got stuck due to insufficient fuel between Ibadan and Lagos on Thursday.

“The train gauge had an issue while the engineers thought the diesel in the train tank would take them to Lagos. The train gauge was not reading correctly, so by the time they started moving, the driver discovered that there was no sufficient diesel in the train,” admitted Fidet Okhiria, the NRC managing director.

He explained that the incident was caused by fuel gauge failure on the passenger train service.

The NRC boss also explained that passengers coming to Lagos from Ibadan through the standard gauge train were not stranded as the matter was resolved within an hour.

“Immediately they discovered the challenge, they responded quickly, and under an hour, they were able to get (a) drum of diesel to fill the tank and continued the journey back to Lagos,” Mr Okhiria claimed.

On Thursday, the standard gauge train from Ibadan to Lagos abruptly stopped while conveying passengers to Lagos from Ibadan station.
