The minister, however, said that after the official launch on July 26, commercial services would start immediately.
``The president has approved the 26th of this month for the official launching of the project and we have agreed that before the inauguration, we will visit the place.
``So, the final inspection will be on Thursday, July 21, 2016,” he said.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) recalls that four coaches with a passenger capacity of 380 are currently on ground to convey travellers from Idu to Kaduna.
