Many Nigerians seeking to travel from Abuja to Kaduna and several other train stations were left stranded as workers were not available to attend to them.

Aside from the strike, the workers are currently protesting in some railway stations across the country, carrying placards with inscriptions stating their demands.

For instance, at Ebute Metta train station and Kajola in Lagos and Ogun, the railway workers took their protest to Lagos-Ibadan rail tracks to state their demands, while chanting solidarity songs.

The workers carried placards with the inscriptions “give us salary regime or we die”, “work for Nigeria railway and die in abject poverty” and “good salaries bring better results, bad salaries kill morale”.
