The People’s Republic of China has unveiled a brand new, state-of-the-art Fuxing bullet train.

The train, according to the Embassy of the People’s Republic of China in Nigeria, in a Facebook post, is said to be the world’s first intelligent and autonomous high-speed train with a top speed of 350 kilometres per hour and a 5G live broadcast studio on board, to serve the upcoming Beijing Winter Olympics.

‘The demonstration of the train’s new technologies to athletes and guests from around the world during the Beijing Games scheduled for February 4-20 will be a definite boon to the profile of China’s high-speed railway (HSR) system, one of the crown jewels of Chinese industrial achievements, said a senior designer of the advanced Electric Multiple Unit (EMU),’ the Embassy of the People’s Republic of China in Nigeria wrote.

The Embassy added that one of the unique characteristics of the EMU is that it has a live broadcast studio that could transmit ultra-high-definition content via 5G connections.

It also said the installation, which is one of the first on the world’s fastest trains, will bring convenience to global media professionals covering the event.

In the Facebook post, the Embassy of the People’s Republic of China quoted Zhu Yan, a deputy director with Engineering Research Center of CRRC Changchun Railway Vehicles Co, the train’s maker, who told the Global Times that: “To have so much advanced technology brought together on this train, and to present it in front of the world, this shows China’s comprehensive strengths in terms of the train system, and will definitely boost the exports and go abroad efforts of the EMU system.”

The Embassy of the People’s Republic of China further said by using new materials and technologies, as well as an eagle-shaped nose chosen out of over 40 designs, the EMU has lower wind resistance and weighs less.

‘These traits make it a green EMU that’s 10 per cent more energy-efficient than previous generations, saving 1.8 million kilowatt-hours of electricity per year.

‘With the help of the latest communication hardware, cameras and sensors, the train can scan up to 14 kilometres ahead to probe for any abnormal intrusions on the tracks, according to Zhu.

‘The eight-car EMU can carry 564 people, though it will serve no more than half that many during the Beijing Games as part of the epidemic control efforts, according to China State Railway Group Co, the state-owned railway operator,’ the Chinese Embassy stated.

The Embassy also said China has exported its high-speed rail technologies to Indonesia for the Jakarta-Bandung high-speed railway.

‘Construction of the railway has been progressing smoothly and approaching completion. A number of other countries, including Laos, the Government of China disclosed, also use Chinese-made trains, though they travel at lower speeds.

‘This new generation of smart EMUs also stands a good chance of upgrading China’s existing domestic bullet train fleet, the world’s largest, numbering at 4,000.

‘China is the world’s superpower in terms of high-speed rail technology. The country has 40,000 kilometres of high-speed rail lines and plans to build another 1,400 kilometres by the end of 2022, according to media reports.

‘The railway between Beijing and Zhangjiakou in North China’s Hebei Province is where China’s railway industry started and the development of this railway resembled the development process of Chinese railways.

‘In 2019, on the 110th anniversary of China’s first railway, China’s first EMU equipped with smart technologies was unveiled on this section, ushering in a new era of strength-building in China’s transportation industry,’ the Embassy of the People’s Republic of China in Nigeria added.

On his part, Sun Zhang, a mass transit expert and professor at Shanghai Tongji University, pointed to one special bonus in that Beijing and Zhangjiakou have linked up all the game venues, from indoor ice sports stadiums in the city of Beijing to outdoor ski resorts in the suburb of Yanqing and those in Hebei Province, with a carefully knitted web of subways, intra-city railways and high-speed railways that enable people to travel in a time-efficient manner.

‘Needless to say, such a sincere calling card will be impressive to guests, dignitaries and athletes participating in the Beijing Games,’ Sun said.

The Osun NSCDC spokesperson explained that he had successfully scammed a 37-year-old Halima Ashifa, a resident of Sango Ota, Ogun State, before luck ran out for him.

According to Adigun, “Halima Ashifa signified interest in the supply of eggs and established contact with the suspect.

“She eventually made a cash transfer of a total sum of fifty-five thousand Naira (N55,000) in two instalments of seven thousand and five hundred naira (N7500) and forty-seven thousand and five hundred naira (N47,500) only for the eggs on January 21 and 25, 2022, respectively.

“The money was deposited in a GTBank account, which the suspect claimed was the account belonging to his company secretary. Whereas, the account number actually belongs to a Point Of Sales (POS) operator at Owode-Ede.”

While disclosing that the crime committed by the suspect was tantamount to obtaining money under false pretence, Adigun stated that he had violated Section 1(1) A(C) of the Advanced Fee Fraud and Other Related Offences Act, 2006.

He explained that he contravened the act because he fraudulently obtained money from his victim knowing that he had no eggs for sale and he did not own any poultry farm.

The command spokesperson, however, stated that the suspect would be charged to court in due course because he has volunteered confessional statements to confirm his culpability.

Gov. Gboyega Oyetola of Osun has urged the electorate in the state to safeguard their Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) ahead of the July 16 gubernatorial election in the state.

The governor made the remarks  on Thursday during what was described as a “strategic tour” of Ila Federal Constituency Area of the state.

Oyetola also urged members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to keep their membership registration slips safe ahead of the party’s primary.

He appealed to them not to allow any individual to deceive them  with ”fake loan” to steal still their PVCs from them.

“I implore you to keep the party’s registration slip issued during the accreditation exercise and your voter’s card safe.

“With the look of things, it seems that the party will opt for direct primary, if it is so, the membership slip will be used for the exercise.

“Some people want to collect your PVC and membership slip with the pretence to give you a loan.

“They are all liars, the loan that they did not give you two years ago, they are lying to give you months to the election.

“They are promising you food now, they are liars. We started our food support programme last year April and we did not stop it.

“Your second term ambition will be successful and whoever tries to stand on your way, will not witness your success story.

“ Don’t despair, our ancestors were faced with travails and they emerged triumphant, you shall overcome yours too.

“Your detractors will witness your success and you will triumph over them,” the Oba said. (NAN)
