Kaduna, July 28, 2020 The management of the Kaduna line announced that it has signed a 10-year memorandum of understanding with Kogi Investment and Properties Limited to strengthen transport services.
Mr. Augustine Ogar, Managing Director of Kaduna Line, revealed this during the signing of the agreement on Tuesday in Kaduna.

“From now on, passengers who wish to travel between the Lokoja-Kaduna axis could frequent our vehicles and be assured of safety and good value for money,” he said.
Ogar said the 10-year deal would be subject to an annual review, adding that there were no financial or legal implications for the partnership.
“As such, Kogi Investment and Properties Limited could withdraw its partnership at any time at its discretion.”
Ogar added that plans are underway to extend Kaduna Line routes to other states in the country before the end of the year.
The director reiterated his commitment to strictly adhere to the COVID-19 protocol for the safety of drivers and passengers, respectively.
Also speaking, Mr. Godwin Akpam, Managing Director of Kogi Investment and Properties Limited, who was represented by the Managing Director of the company, Hajiya Aisha Suleiman, called the event memorable.
Akpam noted that passengers, so far stranded due to a shortage of vehicles commuting between the Kaduna-Lokoja road, would be relieved, as the deal was aimed at improving transportation services.
He added that the company’s vehicles were in good condition, stressing that the issue of social distancing and COVID-19 precautionary measures were not negotiable.
Akpam further praised the Kaduna line and ensured a cordial working relationship.
