Nigeria isn't building rail line into Niger but, only to the designated Border point.

An agreement between Nigeria and Niger in 2015, coordinated by the Nigeria-Niger Joint Commission for Cooperation has a plan for “Kano-Katsina-Maradi Corridor Master Plan, (K2M)” as it is called.

Going by this, the two nations would each build a rail track to meet at the border town of Maradi.

Nigerian delegates to that meeting comprised officials from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, National Boundaries Commission, Federal Ministry of Industry, Trade and Investment, Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, Water Resources as well as those of Kano and Katsina states.

The objective of the rail is the harnessing of raw materials, mineral resources and agricultural produce. When completed, it will serve domestic industries and play the role of a a viable transportation backbone to the West African subregion, starting with the neighboring Niger Republic for their export and import logistic chain.

Oh in that case, Fulani's across Niger republic should just trek with their sticks to the border point and book a train ride from Maradi down to Kano state, file for Local government identification letter by speaking Fulfude as pre-requisite. Then in 2023 presidential elections Kano will produce 7million votes. undecided

Noted.


No problem if we build or extend it to Niger republic.

We are giant of Africa.




When we are done building the rail to Niger republic. We will ask Chad, Ghana , Cameroon and Benin republic plus Togo to list projects we will do for them.


We must maintain our role as Giant of Africa

The obvious economic rationale is to encourage Niger to make Apapa port its main port for import/export using Lagos - Kano Rail line.

Whoever has the most efficient Rail System to deliver move goods and services between the targeted countries and the Atlantic Ocean takes the biggest pie of International trade from them.

Shame on you all! Go and read "How Nations fail" and understand what is called "Creative destruction" that's what you guys are doing to Nigeria. You borrow to build white elephant project in a non-productive zone while your biggest travelers and importers in the East are crying for it, Nigeria will keep dying while your village people keep ridding the train. What a misplaced priority?

Garba Shehu

What difference does it make? Does the boarder meant for the Norwegians or Swedes?
Rather, it is a collection point for a useless specie of human killers

It's getting clearer that buhari has a devilish agenda for this country, closing the southern border but building railway into Niger republic. Benin Republic is much more economically viable than Niger republic

Only in Nigeria.

what has Niger republic got to offer the country other than cows and terrorists.
I guess they need to connect to their brothers. One naijeriya my a55.

This will only transfer to more votes for the Kano, Kaduna and Katsina axis. They speak the same language and would be registered to a LGA upon arrival into naijeriya.
