The Honourable Minister of Transportation, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi has expressed the Federal Government's readiness to create employment for Nigerian youths through the Inland Dry Ports (IDPs).

The Minister made the declaration when he paid a final inspection visit to the Kaduna Inland Dry Port in Kaduna on Tuesday 20/6/2017 ahead of the commissioning of the port.

Speaking earlier, the Executive Secretary/Chief Executive Officer of the Nigerian Shippers' Council, Mr. Hassan Bello appreciated the state Government for their support for the project.  He said that among all states where the dry port was located, Kaduna gave the highest support in ensuring that the project was completed.

Bello however, appealed to the State Government to construct accessible road and provide proper infrastructure for the importation and exportation of cargoes.
