Kaduna Inland Port For Expansion In 2019 — Manager by Blue3k2: 3:16am On Jan 08
The Management of the Kaduna Inland Dry Port Limited has disclosed its intention to increase the volume of activities at the port in 2019 to make it an easy way for imported items to get the northern part of Nigeria as well as for the export of agricultural produce from the region.

The Port Manager, Mr. Rotimi Raimi, who disclosed this to newsmen in a chat to mark the first anniversary of the commencement of operation of the inland port, said businesses generated from within the port could serve as a foreign exchange earner which would boost the economy of the country.

Raimi said the port had been hampered from realizing its full potential by the lack of functional rail and the deplorable state of roads in the country.

He said the challenge had made the cost of transporting cargoes from the Lagos seaport to the dry port to go up which has affected the volume of business.

He said the problem can only be tackled if the Nigerian Railway Corporation (NRC) can make the rail workable and provide enough locomotives and wagons for easy transportation of cargoes from the sea ports to the dry port.

He said the Kaduna Dry Port which is the first of its kind in the country has all it takes to make the entire northern region economically viable.

“Though the Federal Government has promised that this year (2019), it will provide locomotives and wagons. If that is done, you will see that a lot of people will patronize us but at the moment, we are finding it difficult to get our goods out of the seaports,” he stated.

Raimi appealed to the Federal Government to hasten up the provision of locomotives and freight wagons as promised for businesses to thrive at the port and urged exporters to take the advantage of the dry port saying it would provide an easy way for the export of agricultural produce from the state to other parts of the world.

The NRC cant deliver rail coaches after a year. Its the same way they didnt deliver on the online tickets. Oh well hopefully they fulfill their promise this year. The government should concession these services asap either way.

Congratulations to them, rail would have been the best but no, they won't do it due to PDP's 16 years of corruption, there are active sea ports lying in ruins with no attention....

A functional rail network around our dear country would boost development beyond your imagination.


All monies will also go to FG thereby boosting IGR. And trust me the north has a lot to export to other parts of the nation


That's why Buhari is trying really hard on rail projects that some blind idiots claim they can't see or feel the impact

This is one if the reasons I have no respect for that foolish weakling called Jonathan. The idiot was Sao focused on asslicking and pleasing the northerners he forgot south. Southern leaders are fools


Now buhari the dullard go show southerners pepper for this his second term. In as much as I don't like atiku; i would want him to win because i somehow believe he is a lesser evil than this blood sucking man we have as president; but unfortunately I don't think that poo will happen as north has already line up almajiris and their brothers from Chad and Niger to ensure massive rigging which one top dogs will spearhead the rigging

The south had opportunity to fix the Warri, Calabar, Onne, and Onitsha ports in the person of GEJ, but they refused to utilize it.

Travel by roads to the SS & SE, you will see road construction, partly funded by sukuk bond!

Believe me, I am from the SS and have traverse almost the 36 states of Naija, the South (a minor exception is the SW) of Naija lack focus whether politically, economically or security etc.
and are quick to point fingers at the North.

Elections are around the corner, SW has their interest, the north is even looking at the possibility of +4 for buhari, or 4+4 for Atiku, what's the interest of SS?, despite it lays the golden egg that keeps the nation going. SMH

Ignorance. Every region received license to develop dey sea port, Kaduna developed its own and reaping the benefits. Go and ask your governors to stop sleeping on a bicycle.

Re: Kaduna Inland Port For Expansion In 2019 — Manager by shachris02: 10:44am On Jan 08
they neglect the real ports in other regions to expand a 'dry port' in their region.

How does this reduce port congestion? Government of the North, for the North.

Nepotistic foolBuhari.
