Mr Aminu Gusua, the Director of Administration and Human Resources, Nigerian Railways Corporation (NRC), says the Corporation will recruit more level crossing keepers to minimise rail accident.
Gusua disclosed this to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Thursday in Lagos.
He said that the NRC was in the process of hiring new level crossing keepers to reduce incidence of people being killed while crossing the rail line.
He said that there was also the need for public enlightenment on how to cross the rail line to minimize accident and death.
Gusau said that when the gate keepers are hired, they would be trained to meet the expectations of the reforms going on in the rail transport sector.
He also said that rail tracks would not be left unused after undergoing repairs, to forestall further damage.
"That is why the corporation will soon start the recruitment of new workers to enhance rail service.
"The more people with new knowledge and approach are employed, the better the service they will render," he said.
