The Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, has disclosed that the Federal Government intends to create jobs for unemployed Nigerians through the establishment of dry ports also known as Inland Container Depots across the country.
Mr Amaechi made the disclosure during the final inspection of the Kaduna Inland Dry Port, on Tuesday.
He said “We are doing everything possible to create jobs. Whatever we need to do to get the port running, we will do it.
“The rail will soon start running before the end of the year, which will be used to deliver goods at the port.
“Everything is set for commissioning because we have the land, warehouse and all but we want to wait for the completion of the roads.
“We want to wait for more activities in the dry port before we get the president to commission it.
“I have visited Jos and they are doing a good job and they promised to be ready by June. I have visited Kaduna and what I have seen is commendable.“
