Kano State Government has disbursed 2.3 billion Naira for the provision of infrastructures for the take-up operation of Inland Dry Port, Kumbotso Kano.
The Managing Director of Dala Inland Dry Port, Ahmad Rabiu stated this when he led journalists on an inspection tour at the ongoing work at the premises of the Dry port.
He explained that the infrastructure to be provided by the state government includes access road, perimeter fence, water and electricity among others.
The Managing Director who was a former commissioner of Commerce in Kano explained that the Inland Dry Port was approved by the federal government for over ten years, but the project was in a coma until the present administration in Kano approved the disbursement.
Rabiu Ahmed noted that the project when completed would provide thousands of job opportunities to the teeming youths and boost the state IGR as well as promote export not only in Kano but the zone.
He added that with the recent development in the rail line sector in Nigeria, containers would reach the Inland Dry port in Kano from seaport Lagos within a day, with less than two hundred thousand naira, making the owner of the cargo save the sum of a million Naira.
