African countries to Patronise Kano Dry Port – Ganduje

Ahead of the commissioning of the Kano Dry Port, the governor of the State Alhaji Abdullahi Ganduje says the presidents of Niger Republic, Cameroon, Chad and Central African Republic have indicated interest to patronise the multi-billion Naira signature project.

Governor Ganduje made the disclosure during an assessment tour of the facility.

According to the governor, the leaders of those countries “have indicated their interest and readiness to be using Kano Dry Port for their imports and exports.”

He said all the presidents had accepted to send their officials to Kano to discuss with the government on the modus operandi of the new Dry Port before it takes off.

Alhaji Ganduje applauded President Muhammadu Buhari’s commitment to creating the enabling environment for businesses in the state.

The governor called on managers of the Port to ensure that they run everything digitally.

“We are in a digital world. You should therefore make sure that you comply with the digital demand and operate within the realm of global best practice,” he told the management team.

He also expressed satisfaction with the level of progress and commitment of both contractors and consultants.
