While stating that the federal government thought it necessary to bring shipping closer to the people by establishing ports in the hinterland, Bello also told the audience that the Council was currently promoting the establishment of Inland Dry Ports and Vehicle Transit Areas across the country, stressing that Nigeria was blessed with about 195 million kilometers of hinterland and a vast country endowed agriculturally and otherwise.

PROJECTED IMPACT: The port, when operational, will contribute to the seamless movement of cargo throughout the entire transport value chain and help to decongest  Nigerian sea ports.
