The The Nigerian Railway Corporation has refuted reports that the Abuja-Kaduna railway station had internal network problems connecting to the National Identity Management Board server.
Speaking at a panel discussion of the Nigeria Digital ID4D P Project Ecosystem Implementing Partners on Friday, Abuja, the Director of Database, NIMC, Olufemi Fabunmi, said the reason for the service outage experienced by the NRC was the internal network.
PUNCH reported last week that commuters were stranded at Abuja-Kaduna railway station due to NIMC server outage.
As a result, passengers scheduled for 9:45 a.m. trips could not board the train. The stranded passengers had to travel to Kaduna by road.
Fabunmi explained that the internal network could not connect to the active NIMC server due to poor connectivity.
The Director of Railway Services in the Ministry of Transport, Engr Jimoh Yusuf, told our correspondent in Abuja that the network problems at the railway station have always been with the NIMC server.
He said, “I am not aware of any adjustments made by the NRC to improve the network condition. It has always been the NIMC server that has problems at times but always recovers quickly.
