The Senate has passed the Nigeria Railway Corporation Act, 1955 Repeal and Re- enactment Bill, 2016 .

While speaking, Senate Committee on Land Transport, Senator Olugbenga Ashafa, said the bill which contained 212 clauses were repealed and re enacted.

Ashafa said that the bill has separated the regulator from the operators, adding that with the passing of the bill, Nigerians should expect a radical change in the sector.

“A whole lot of the clauses have been repealed and re- enacted. We looked at the bill, clause by clause, 212 clauses that were repealed and re-enacted. Nigerians should expect a radical change,” he said.
