Nigeria’s Transport Minister, Hon. Rotimi Amaechi, has said that the University of Transport Technology, Daura, Katsina State, would commence academic activities by September 2022.

The Minister gave the hint at the site of the University in Daura after taking a tour of the project which is being handled by China Civil Engineering Construction (CCECC), on Monday.

According to him, “It appears they have finished all their structures. They said they still have seven buildings and those seven buildings should be ready by September.

“I have asked the Permanent Secretary to invite them for a meeting so that this school can start functioning from September.”

The Minister who had earlier visited the Dala Inland Dry Port in Kano to ascertain the readiness of the project for the commencement of commercial activities noted that only finishing touches is left and would be commissioned by President Muhammadu Buhari.

According to him,  “If you say I am not impressed by what am seeing that would be a wrong word. They promised they would have completed by today. Have they completed the structures yes, but they have not completed the landscape, but until they do the land scaping, once the land scaping is done, we can bring the president here to commission it”.
