The construction of the $50m (N18.95bn) Transportation University in Daura, Katsina State has begun.
The Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, who inspected the project on Saturday, said the target was to complete the university in September 2021.
The China Civil Engineering Construction Corporation is constructing the facility in Daura, the home town of President Muhammadu Buhari as a gift to Nigeria.
Amaechi, while speaking on the project, said, “There has been too much noise about them (CCECC) not constructing anything. When you got there, you saw that they were constructing. They just got approval from the state government.
“Proper construction will start at the end of September and hopefully they should be able to complete it at the end of September next year.”
