FG raises panel to monetise railway quarters

The Federal Government through the Ministry of Transportation has set up a committee to oversee the monetisation of railway quarters across the country.

This move is aimed at generating revenue for the government and improving the living conditions of railway workers.

The committee will be responsible for determining the market value of the quarters, developing a payment plan for interested buyers, and ensuring that the process is transparent and equitable.

Esan further said that members of the committee include the President Senior Staff Association NRC Branch, Marcel Chuckwuemeka and the President-General of NUR, Innocent Ajiji.

According to a letter sighted by The PUNCH signed by the Secretary-General, NUR, Segun Esan and the Secretary-General Senior Staff Association (NRC Branch), Jubrin Kadiri, dated March 7, 2023, and titled ‘Railway quarters physical data gathering’ addressed to the chairman/secretary, NUR and SSA EBJ, IB, MX, KAF, EN, BCK, ZRX, RPMCL, AKTS, WITS, directed all the district organs to work together with their district management to compile information on all NRC quarters and their occupants, including their GL and whether they are serving or retired
