CHINA SHIPPED SCRAPS TO NIGERIA AS HIGH SPEED TRAINS



 
 
The NigerianRailway Corporation (NRC), an arm of the Federal Ministry of transport has received some set of what it’s considered 10 standard gauge trains from China Railway Rolling Stock Corporation (CRRC). The train has a design speed of 160 km/h and Operation speed that could be as high as 150 km/h. The trains were received recently at Lagos Port; months after some Nigerian delegates inspected the rail coaches in Nanjing, China.

 
From the photos above, it is evident that those trains are not newly build trains but refurbished trains that have been pushed out of operation in china. In a bid to make it look new, the trains were equipped with new locomotive engines and repainted with paints that carry the NRC colours.

This is totally unacceptable and investigation should be carried out both in Nigeria and China to ascertain the real cost of the transaction and the actual train that was paid for. 

Why should the Chiness government turn Nigeria into a dumping ground for discarded trains that will not be in operation for more than six months without repairs?
Below are photos of high speed trains that are currently in operation both in some African countries and in china
