President Bola Tinubu is scheduled to officially open the Funtua Inland Dry Port located in Katsina State on May 9.

The Assistant Director of the Public Relations Unit at the Nigerian Shippers’ Council, NSC, Rebecca Adamu, disclosed this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, on Wednesday.

Adamu said the inauguration, scheduled to take place at the Funtua IDP Project Site in Katsina at 11:00 am, would include important stakeholders and distinguished guests.

She said, “Establishment of inland dry port will bring shipping and port services closer to the importers and exporters at the hinterland,

“It will decongest the seaports, create job opportunities, improve and accrue huge revenue to the government, among others.

“It is also in line with the performance bond signed by the Minister of Marine & Blue Economy, Adegboyega Oyetola.

“It is worthy to note that this initiative is part of NSC’ Key Performance Indicator (KPI), to deliver the Funtua Inland Dry Port Project before the end of the 1st Quarter, 2024, ’’she said.
