How Dala Inland Dry Port Built By PMB In Kano Will Decongest Lagos Ports & Provide Job For Nigerians

Following endless construction activities at the site by the contractors, the Inland Dry Port (IDP) being built by the Buhari administration at Dala in Kano is getting set to be completed and commissioned at the end of November 2021. This port when commissioned will decongest Lagos Ports which are over-congested.

This information came in the wake of the inspection visit of the Executive Secretary of the Nigerian Shippers Council, Hon. Emmanuel Jime to the site on Tuesday, September 14, 2021, where he further said the completion of the project is due to President Muhammadu Buhari’s determination to enhance commercial activities in Kano, being the hub of trade and commerce in Northern Nigeria.

Envisioned as a major tool in actualizing the concept of Ease of Doing Business that is being championed by the administration, the Dala Dry Port will reduce the cost of doing shipping business, and will thus be an avenue for Shippers in the hinterland and neighboring countries like Chad, Niger Republic, and the Benin Republic to avail themselves of the cheaper opportunities provided by this dry port

Generally, besides the hundreds of jobs and business opportunities the construction of this Dry Port has already generated for residents of Kano, the operations of the Port itself after completion will be of huge benefit to Kano's large army of top-flight entrepreneurs who engage in lots of international trade, which makes it a profitable project.

Recall that other dry ports such as Baro port in Niger State are attaining the completion stage also. With all these ports across Nigeria, the transportation of goods and services through the sea and the surrounding areas will be fast. The ease of doing business through water transportation will be effective and not take days like before in landing and clearing. President Muhammadu Buhari has saved the country, particularly Lagos from over congestion associated with ports in the State.
