Government has taken delivery of the first unit of two modern trains procured from Poland for railway transport in the country.

The first train for Ghana Railways to operate both regional and long-distance lines arrived in the country a few days ago.

Information Minister designate, Fatimatu Abubakar, on Friday (19 January) shared pictures of the train on her X to confirm its procurement by government.
