The Minister recently revealed this when he led a delegation of Nigerian Shippers Council and Nigeria Railway Corporation on a courtesy visit to the Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje in Kano, North-West Nigeria.
According to him, because of the economic viability of the state, the rail line and the inland dry port will definitely improve business activities of the state, while stimulating import and export trade.
He added that even if no river is currently existing in the state, he can promise to bring maritime activities to Kano.
His words, “We are here because we want to see how far you have gone with the Dala Inland Dry Port because between now and July, we will start work on the Kano-Kaduna part of the rail and wherever we link the Kano rail to Kaduna and link Ibadan to Abuja, then we have the problem of cargoes.”
“We have to learn how to manage cargoes that come to Kano, like you know; we are also linking Kano-Maradi. Kano will be the hub for the railway sector with a major station in Kano. The station will be able to control the volume of human traffic in Kano.”
“Kano is important to Nigeria, Kano is also important to the railway sector and we are trying to see how to bring maritime into Kano. It is important to note that the Nigerian Shippers’ Council North-West Zonal Office is located in Kano because of the economic importance.”
“We believe that the government has the capacity to protect those projects and respond to the needs of the users.”
