FG, Niger Republic To Partner On Rail Construction – Amaechi by Blue3k(m): 1:21pm On Sep 18, 2018
Abuja – The Minister of Transportation, Chief Rotimi Amaechi, says the Federal Government is partnering with the government of Niger Republic to construct standard gauge rail-line to attract and facilitate businesses to Nigerian ports.

Amaechi said this at the opening of the maiden edition of the International Association of Port and Harbours (IAPH), Africa Regional Conference, organised by the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) on Monday in Abuja.

He said that the rail line would start from Kano and pass through Dutse, Kazaure, Daura, Kastina, Jibia and terminate at Maradi in Niger.

“The Federal Government of Nigeria is partnering with the government of Niger Republic in the construction of a standard gauge rail line to connect Maradi in Niger and Katsina States.


“This is also part of our efforts to promote regional integration and trade between our two nations.

“The decision of the rail line getting to Niger was to try to get other neighbouring countries to transport their vessels through Nigeria, looking at the economic viability of that service.

“Having the train in Maradi will open up trade from other neighbouring countries to ship their goods through Nigeria, from Kano to Lagos without police checkpoints or traffic.


“We also do not have a seaport; we are trying to get the market.

“We have the capacity to do that, all those big vessels that are supposed to pass through Nigeria go to Benin Republic.

“Benin Republic has a Deep Water Port and we don’t have a sea port in Nigeria, what we have is a River port.

“So, that is the reason we want to build the 16 metres Lekki Deep Water Port and 17 metres Deep Water Port at Bonny to attract the market,’’ he said.


Amaechi, however, said that the development of dry ports in Kano and Kaduna, with direct rail connection, would transit cargoes and containers easily to the nook and crannies of Northern Nigeria.

He said this would also extend to Chad and Niger Republic in determination to promote trans-shipment of cargoes to the neighbouring countries. (NAN)

Crook Amaechi sure knows the formula of the dullard. Take a Memo to the dullard with proposed projects for the North, get immediate approval, loot and repeat. The Bigot can't just help himself when he sees North and Amaethief clearly knows this. No wonder the dude is the happiest Minister in the Cabinet and has been made campaign DG again.

This is commendable, and yet these people who are blinded by hate will still come here with their hate speeches saying Negative things about the government.. I believe this is a positive move made by the PMB Administration, i believe people should learn to appreciate rather than condemn this government.. when it is obvious the government has put in effort to better the country..this government is working hard to see to the growth of this country.
God bless PMB
God bless Nigeria

Amaechi also mentioned he's negotiating a loan for Ibadan-kano line for 6 billion dollars. It seems he's made an about face regarding Nigeria solely funding the project if vanguard is right. They should have inquired more about the partnership.

What are we "partnering" with
the 4th poorest nation on earth for?

What have we to gain from a country
that is in perpetual drought & famine?

The are also a country with desperate
Islamic fanatics & a ready source of insurgents &
suicide volunteers for boko haram.

Even the Chinese with their longa throat
no dey venture yonder. Yet buhari plans
to connect us to such a wasteland,
through such a 'white camel' project.
The man just loves anything poverty.

The rail will zig from kano to dutse, then zag
zag to daura, zig to katsina before zagging
to to jibia, thence Maradi.

Some ppl upstairs are on

What is the economic advantage of linking Niger to Nigeria via the railway line? Who benefits more? Who funds it? Have all the states in Nigeria had a fair share of the rail infrastructure?

Is like Buhari is really bent on returning to his ancestral home in Niger Republic. This love affair between the two countries is very suspicious. Why not Benin Republic or Cameroon? Buhari has proven once again that he belongs to the Berbers and Futa djalon

Amechi has not finished connecting nigerians by rail and is thinking of connecting to Niger republic. Nigerians should not forget that Amechi is silently milking Nigeria dry with this railway contract here and there. Note South east has not been linked with this railway contract and now Amechi isthinking of connecting Niger republic. Nigerians is finished with this bogus railway contract in the hand of Amechi. Nigerian be wise
