Speech Delivered by National President Of Oodua Youth Coalition during the annuals Public Lecture held on 16th of Nov 2020. Virtual edition



Protocols!


It gives me great joy and pleasure to speak to this gathering of patriotic, visionary and progressive-minded youths of Yoruba extraction. Even when the novel coronavirus tried to build bridges between us and take our inalienable right of association, we leverage on the available  technological evolvement to gather for progressive cross-pollination of ideas like this. May I humbly welcome us all to this year edition of the Oodua Youths Coalition annual public lecture.



The Oodua Youth Coalition is a conglomerateon of youths across the Southwest, birth in the year 2017, the organisation's mandate was premised around harnessing the youthfulness, innovative and patriotic tendencies of Youths around the six southwestern states for the development of the region and the country at large in the area of governance, agriculture, education, business, advocacy and sustainability of peace.



The organisation have since been fulfilling it mandate by working closely with community heads, government institutions, NGOs in ensuring people especially in the remote areas are sensitize and educated on the roles they're to expected to play in the process of making our country, Nigeria and the Yoruba Nation a great place for all to peacefully coexist. In lieu of the public outcry, our involvement in the agitation for the reforming of the anti-robbery unit of the Nigerian Police Force saw our members made the judicial panel of inquiry across the southwest, this and many other interventions define our existence as a group.



The theme for this year's public lecture was informed by the situation at hand globally and the need to find a solution within our cultural norms. It's a proven believe that Yoruba's leverage the potency of roots and herbs for meditation for several years. It was what our founding fathers lived on, even when the new generation prefer to look in the ways of medicine and science that seems to be taking too long than expected in the provision of vaccine for the ravaging novel coronavirus. It won't be out of place for us as a people with the history of harnessing the efficacy of herbs and roots for medication to look in the way for care to the novel virus.


Secondly, it's not doubt that the outbreak of the virus have seen the global economy crumbled, it effect on education, sport, international trade and micro and macro economies of country is deepened and serious and very proactive steps must be taken to revive the world back to her fit in earnest. The task of reviving the global economy is one that requires all hands to be on deck and it won't be out of place for us as a people–Yoruba to look for means to contribute to the revival within our local economy setup. 


This and many more are reasons why the leadership of the Oodua Youth Coalition cautiously choose our highly revered, experienced, savvy and discipline speakers to do justice to the topic "Levergaing the rich yoruba culture" in a time like this.



It will no doubt worth your time.


Thanks for been part of this year's auspicious event.


God Bless You..

NAOSS LAUNCH ONE NAOSSITE ONE SKILL



INTERNATIONAL STUDENT DAY: SPEECH DELIVERED BY THE GLOBAL PRESIDENT OF THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF ONDO STATE STUDENTS, COMRADE AYOADE DAVID KIKIOWO, ON TUESDAY, 17TH OF NOVEMBER, 2020.


PROTOCOLS 

Today marks the 81st memorial honored by students all over the world. To remember the labour of the legends who put their lives on the line to fight for multiculturalism; for a society where all lives matter, whether Jews or Pagans, black or white; a society where culture is respected and not brutalized.


This year has been an adventurous one, we are caught in the web of a pandemic, ASUU strike and the historical End SARS movement. Nigerian youths and students have suffered severely from these blows. Recall that the lockdown has kept students away from school for months and the ASUU strike has continued to top the sad development for Undergraduates.


Covid-19 brought forced social-distancing and hunger on us, as the lockdown grounded a lot of economic activities. The leadership of the National Association of Ondo State Students put it upon herself to support her members with food items during this moment. It was recorded that several students benefitted from this show of love targeted at Ondo state students in Akure environment. We ensured the distribution of food items to areas like FUTA, Ondo road, Ijoka, Oda road and FECA.


Furthermore, the Gubernatorial election in October saw us sensitizing the public, especially young people on the importance of participating in the electoral process, by voting candidates of their choice. We also discouraged political apathy and highlighted the danger attached. For this cause, the Association organized a ‘Peace walk’ and with the aid of placards, it passed the message of Peace and Participation to the Ondo people. In the same vein, the Association was not silent about the ‘Popular Police Brutality’ that littered the streets and eroded the media. It was indeed a sad phase for the country. The Association organized a campaign and in the spirit of solidarity, raised a voice against Police Brutality.


Sad to note also is that the unemployment rate among young people rose from 29.7% to 34.9% in the second quarter of this year, according to the National Bureau of Statistics. These worrisome figures continue to emphasize the need to upskill our youths and ensure their economic independence. This is a course that we are set to chart in the next few months. 


The National Association of Ondo State Students is launching a skill acquisition programme tagged

ONE NAOSSite, ONE SKILL. This project is targeted at empowering Ondo state students with relevant 21st-century digital skills. It is no news that the world is turning digital, we are in the future already.


More than 5,000 Ondo State students across Nigeria will benefit from this initiative. The courses include CopyWriting and Blogging, Graphic Design & Illustration, Forex / Cryptocurrencies, Digital and Social Media Marketing. Others include Retail Management Merchandising, Distribution and Marketing, Project and Product Management, Data Analysis Pivot Tables and Microsoft Excel, Programming and Assembly Language. We are excited to set on this course and are encouraging relevant stakeholders and partners to move with us on this journey.


With no doubt, the Association is persuaded that One NAOSSite One Skill empowerment initiative will prepare Ondo state students in secondary and tertiary institutions for the emerging digital economy, and raise a breed of problem solvers that would represent Ondo state and Nigeria in the world and lower the unemployment rate.


The Association would like to appeal to Governor Oluwarotimi Odunayo Akeredolu to remember his promises concerning the payment of bursary, especially in a time like this where the country is just recovering from the effects of the pandemic. It is clear that bursary will relief students of Ondo state. We have waited for over eight months now and we call on the Governor to hearken to our pleas. We also call on the Ondo state government, to look into the payment of the West Africa Examination Council fee for Ondo State Public Schools to lift this burden off the shoulders of Sunshine boys and girls. As a dividend of democracy, let free education be free to the common man. We also call on the government to put infrastructures in place that will hasten the reopening of state-owned institutions. For if we are to lead the future, time must not be wasted in the present. We do hope that our pleas would hearkened to.


We also implore our Governor to consult with the Federal Government on resolving the impasse ongoing with the Academic Staff Union of Universities. The coalition of Students Union Presidents met in Ibadan recently for this purpose and issued an ultimatum to the Federal Government to resolve this impasse and reopen Universities in the country. Our stand is simple and replicates the resolution of the meeting held in Ibadan. We call on the public to also request that our Government promptly resolves this deadlock for the sake of the future of this country.



Finally, as students of Ondo state, we have seen the worst and best of days, we have experienced history. 2020 has tested us on all sides, yet we are strong and unbroken.  We should hold-on, a better time will come. Let us be upright in all our conducts, remembering that we are the image of the State and we are the Future. 


Long live NAOSS.

Long live Ondo state.

Long live the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

Aluta Continua! Victoria Ascerta.

Comrade Ayoade David Kikiowo,

Global President,

TRANS-AFRICAN YOUTH INITIATIVE HONORS GEORGE MOGHALU MD, NATIONAL INLAND WATERWAYS AUTHORITY



A SPEECH PRESENTED BY AMB. BAKARE LUQMAN, CFO, CNO, CCSCRN, GCYP ,COUNTRY REPRESENTATIVE,  TRANS-AFRICAN YOUTH INITIATIVE (TAYI), ON THE OCCASION OF THE AWARD PRESENTATION TO CHIEF (DR.) GEORGE MOGHALU , MANAGING DIRECTOR, NATIONAL INLAND WATERWAYS AUTHORITY (NIWA).


WEDNESDAY NOVEMBER 4TH 2020.


PROTOCOL:

On behalf of the entire executive and members of TRANS-AFRICAN YOUTH INITIATIVE, I heartily welcome you to this epoch making occasion. I thank God who granted us journey mercies to this great occasion on the award presentation to a distinguished, outstanding and understanding Nigerian.

For the avoidance of cumbersome ambiguity, the TRANS-AFRICAN YOUTH INITIATIVE is the officially recognized voice of the 1.2 Billion young people of the Commonwealth. It is the largest and most diverse youth-led organization in the Africa. TAYI plays an integral role in advancing the youth development agenda and co-ordination of activities and policies of the Commonwealth in the field of youth. The council works for and represents the voice of all young people within the 53 Commonwealth nations.

more so, we pay keen attention to public office holders who have made the society better through their various means.


Our recognized activities include: Organizing seminar/workshop to enlighten Youths on societal ills such as cultism, examination malpractice, indecent dressing, drug abuse, presentation of seasonal lectures and symposia to train youths on leadership and skills acquisition, campaign against corruption, religious intolerance, violence on streets and other countless beneficial activities numerous to mention in print.

Through the years, the organization has been observing the way public office holders have been discharging their assigned duties in bid to delivering the Dividends of Democracy to the people of their respective community so that they could be identified, recognize and encourage to do even more.


The body has intervened severally in many other continental issues with direct bearing on the political and socio-economic fortune of many countries especially Nigeria. In doing so, we have created avenues for our members to participate in the business of nation building and an atmosphere to mรฉlange ideas for self actualization. All these efforts are geared towards promoting integration and cooperation of every individual/corporate institution involved in providing good governance, peace and stability as well as accelerated development in Nigeria.


SIR, you are indeed a golden fish with no hidden habitat, as keen observer of your delectable and impeccable records, your visionary leadership and characteristic are rarely found amidst other men and lovers of youths in Africa.


Permit me to chronicle the following areas, where the quintessential icon have displayed rare commitment to the cause of humanity which make a gathering of this magnitude unavoidable Vis-ร -vis, Adequate Security of live and properties,Educational Development, Educational Empowerment, nation building, Youth emancipation to mention but a few, philanthropy and your indelible contributions towards the transformation of good governance in NIWA among others which you have demonstrated in the quotidian running of your office, in conformity with the vision of His Excellency ,President Mohamodu Buhari, in transforming Nigeria among others.


We in TAYI, believes that there is urgent need for the present crop of Nigerian leaders and aspiring leaders in all human enterprise to start realizing the dreams of the founding fathers of our dear country, Sir Obafemi Awolowo, Sir Ahmadu Bello, Dr Nnamdi Azikwe, Alhaji Tafawa Balewa, Sir Samuel Ladoke Akintola and Sir OlabisiOnabanjo whose activism snowballed from students unionism to nationalism, agitated for and secured, independence for most African countries in the 1950s and 1960s, while also dreaming new dreams to advance the progressive course of humanity.


I will like to say at this point that dreams of building a better society is sacrosanct and tedious, and can be perfectly achieved through a collective and collaboration effort from all well meaning habitats of such society, because when men hold the same idea in their mind, nothing can isolate them, neither the wall of the prison, nor the sod of cemetery, for a single idea and a common goal sustain them. It is on this premise that I want to appeal to the good people of NIWA, traditional Rulers, Local, States and Federal Government to find a lasting solution to the BokoHaram and Niger Delta Avengers menace in the northern and southern  part of the country in other to restore peace to the states affected.


Philosophers have interpreted the world; it is left for us to change it. A society can be move to greater height and higher ideas only by the number and strength of dreamers, thinkers and achievers available to it.


 Giving expression to these dreams requires continuous dose of patriotism, selflessness, determination and courage to trudge on against all odds, as being exemplified by our recipient of today’s award. I want to pray in the word of Martin Luther King Junior that May God gives us the ability to change what we can change, the resilience and fortitude to bear that which we cannot change and above all, the wisdom to distinguish between what we can change and what we cannot change. Amen.


As part of our goals and objectives, we are to embark on a program which we intend to carry out this month. The main theme of the conference:


“A HOLISTIC TO QUALITY ASSURANCE IN AFRICAN HIGHER EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTIONS-PRAGMATIC INTERVENTIONS BY THE SUPPLY AND DEMANS ACTORS”, which is starting on the 16th-20THNovember2020 at Accra Ghana. The summit will feature in Local Government Areas acrossall commonwealths African countries including Nigeria.

We hereby appeal to individuals, public office holders, and entrepreneurs to support us both financially and in kind to enable us attending these programs and other challenging tasks bedeviling us as an organization.


The award recipient has earned himself this NELSON MANDELA most revered Africa Patriot award of excellence as“AFRICA PATRIOTIC LEADER”And NIWA  AS "MOST ORGANISED AND YOUTH FRIENDLY GOVERNMENT AGENCY IN  AFRICA" Under his leadership, which was unanimously agreed at the national executive meeting held at the United Nations Youth Assembly, New Portein, South Africa.


Indeed, the recipient has won the heart of African Youths by his conduct and credentials as a distinguished leader, dogged administrator, bastion of hope and a state man per excellence.


I hereby, on behalf of the organization congratulates our amiable recipient of this award and wish him happy years ahead and we would continue to support you through prayers and goodwill.


To make a conclusion, we believe this honor will inspire other rulers to emulate your lives saving approach to issues of national development.


I thank you all and wish you save journey to your various destination.


Long live Chief George Moghalu,

Long Live NIWA,

Long live TAYI,

Long live Federal Republic of Nigeria.

Oui Soweto!!! Oui Africa!!!

STRUGGLE OF LIFE AND MONEY- Fawolu Lucy

 



"A lot of what is most beautiful about the world arises from struggle"

MALCOLM GLADWELL


Struggle means to make strenous or violent effort in the face of difficulties or opposition.


Life on the other hand is a state of being alive and living.


While money can be defined as any object that is generally accepted as payment for goods and services and repayment of debts in economic context.


Life is a struggle,even from conception,one had to struggle amongst millions of babies. As if that was not enough,life keeps throwing challenges at us and we have to struggle to surmount.


In life,some are fortunate enough to have everything prepared for them,some are born into money,some come across good fortune while some work very hard to get the little they have.


Life is full of stress and hardship for some people and these set of people have to struggle so hard to get everything they need in life,years back, parents struggle for the children,they struggle to survive for shelter and for money but for now,the children of the less privilege join in this struggle to cater for themselves, parents and families.


Children hawk on the street as well as their mothers,they struggle through life sacrifing their own needs and falling to bed exhausted every night.


Most of them get abused in the process of struggling but they had to endure the pain to feed their families.They justify this joyless existence by saying things like"that's life".


Money is no different,money will make you happy because life without money is really hard, living in a financially stable home greatly improves your happiness.


"Anxiety has a significant negative relationship with wealth". Having enough money to live on can ease anxiety and let you stop worrying.


The struggle for life is closely linked with the struggle for money,one of the ways to struggle for life is to have the essential things like food,cloth and shelter "Money answers all things".


Hence,the struggle for money equals the struggle for life. However,there is a twist in between as the struggle for money does not guarantee life and struggle for life does not guarantee money,this is where grace comes in.



The grace of God is always sufficient for those who rely on it.

ON PRESIDENT BUHARI'S SPEECH SEQUEL TO THE LEKKI MASSACRE- Ajayi Ifeoluwa



Indeed, elevated expectations leads to disappointment. As a conscious and well-meaning citizens of this country, clamoring for a timely response from the President in the heat of the recent happenings is the right thing to do. For almost a week, we have waited patiently—observing, and bracing ourselves for yet another comic relief (speech) from the President.


As usual, the President in his avalanche of WISDOM did not disappoint. Both the Independence day speech and the 'twelve minute' POWERFUL speech delivered yesterday did well in validating all the expectations initially held by the larger population about his propensity to 'fuck up' and 'misyarn' in times like this.


Apparently, that was not a speech. He was busy reminding Nigerians of how this administration is performing better than the previous ones through their promises of "lifting 100 million Nigerians out of poverty in 10 years" against the backdrop of the continued devaluation of Naira, exponential increase in price of commodities like Rice, and Petroleum, to mention but few. 


Whereas, under this same administration, Nigeria earned the moniker "poverty capital of the world" and moved from the third fastest growing economy in the world in 2014/15, to 'no where to be found' in the top three in Africa in 2020.


To make it clear, the speech, just like the Independence day speech, was a boo-boo and jambalayas of goofs and gaffes!


In a time when the security of the country is under tremendous threat; the life of a common man is in total mess; stray bullets protrudes from the dark killing with reckless abandon; the already bastardized reputation of the country is being dragged in the mud of shame; while the international community watches as the tragedy continues to unfold with unabated velocity.


In a speech which could be aptly dubbed as a Diplomatic Threat, the pressing issue (Lekki Massacre) which has generated more attention, tweets, sympathy and stir both locally and internationally was chronically left unattended. It was not a surprise though. The lives lost were humans' not cows'.


In this perilous time, being a Nigerian is one of the most unfortunate thing to happen to any human. Asides from living in a milieu battered with extreme poverty, the leaders are cold-blooded rogues who would rather add another Ferrari to their fleet of exotic cars than feed the dying homeless man in their neighborhoods. 


What more could be more unfortunate?

IGP bans FSARS from patrols, ‘stop and search’ duties

 


The Inspector -General of Police, Mohammed Adamu , has banned the personnel of the Federal Special Anti -Robbery Squad from routine patrols.


He also banned other tactical squads of the force , including the Special Tactical Squad, Intelligence Response Team , Anti- Cultism Squad, and other squads operating at the Federal, Zonal , and Command levels , from carrying out routine patrols.


They were also banned from conducting other conventional low- risk duties – stop and search duties , checkpoints, mounting of roadblocks, traffic checks , etc – with immediate effect .


This was contained in a statement by the Force Public Relations Officer , Frank Mba, on Sunday .


The statement titled, ‘ IGP bans FSARS , other police tactical squads from routine patrols’ , added that “ In addition, no personnel of the Force is authorised to embark on patrols or tactical assignments in mufti . They must always appear in their police uniforms or approved tactical gear. ”


The statement came a few hours after condemnations greeted the alleged shooting of a young man in front of a hotel in the Ughelli area of Delta State by some SARS operatives .


The statement read in part, “ The IGP ’ s directives come against the backdrop of findings by the leadership of the Force that a few personnel of the Tactical Squads hide under these guises to perpetrate all forms of illegality , contrary to the Standard Operating Procedure , Code of Conduct and Rules of Engagement establishing the squads .


“ Specifically , the IGP has warned the tactical squads against the invasion of the privacy of citizens particularly through indiscriminate and unauthorised search of mobile phones , laptops , and other smart devices .


“ They are to concentrate and respond only to cases of armed robbery , kidnapping and other violent crimes when the need arises .


“ The IGP notes that the FSARS and other Police Tactical Squads remain a critical component of the Force in confronting prevailing and emerging violent crimes in the country.


“ The IGP has equally warned , that henceforth, the Commissioner of Police in charge of FSARS , Commissioners of Police in charge of State Commands and the FCT as well as their supervisory Zonal Assistant Inspectors General of Police, will be held liable for any misconduct within their Area of Responsibility .


“ He , therefore , charged them to ensure effective supervision and mentoring of the personnel of the Tactical Squads under their jurisdiction . ”

Suspended strike: Presidency taunts critics of labour unions

 

                              Femi Adesina

The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity , Femi Adesina , on Sunday, taunted those who have been criticising labour unions for suspending the industrial action earlier declared to protest the recent increase in fuel price and electricity tariff .


He said the critics became disgruntled because they had apparently perfected plans to use the strike by the labour unions as a smokescreen to unleash anarchy on the land .


Adesina made the claim in a statement titled “ Beware of people smarting from suspended labour strike for selfish reasons -Presidency. ”


Labour unions had planned an industrial action scheduled to commence last week Monday over the increase.


The action was however suspended after a meeting they had with Federal Government on Sunday and lasted early hours of Monday .


Their action attracted criticisms from stakeholders, especially activists , who felt the labour leaders sold out .


But Adesina claimed that some people had wanted to use the suspended strike as an opportunity for a pound of flesh , which they calculated would weaken the government so much , and influence the 2023 elections .


While commending the organised labour unions for putting the country first by suspending the action, the presidential spokesman urged Nigerians to beware of those he claimed are sponsoring and encouraging discord and anarchy , either for selfish ends or as revenge for perceived injuries .


He described those who fall under the category as enemies of the country.


The statement read , “ Since organised labour toed the path of sense and sensibility last week , seeing reason with the imperatives of fuel price adjustment , and opening a further window of dialogue on the service based electricity tariff, some groups of Nigerians have been dolorous , disgruntled , and disconsolate.


“ They had apparently perfected plans to use the strike by the labour unions as smokescreen to unleash anarchy on the land, fomenting mayhem and civil disobedience . But the plan blew up in their faces, and they have been in severe pains since then . They have launched series of tirades against organized labour .


“ For some interest groups , their intention was to use the umbrella of the strike to further their whimsical and pie- in- the-sky dream of a revolution in the country. It went bust in their faces .


“ For some others , Bitter -Enders , who have remained entrenched in pre - 2015 and 2019 elections mode , it was opportunity to avenge the 2012 Occupy Nigeria protests, which they believe largely devalued the government of the day, and led to its eventual ouster in 2015.


“ The strike that was to have come up last week , they wanted to use as opportunity for a pound of flesh, which they calculated would weaken the government so much , and influence the 2023 elections . For them , it was all about hanker for power , its trappings and appurtenances. Nothing about love of country. They have since then been calling organised labour all sorts of names, claiming they deceived Nigerians.


“ The times in which we live - with severe security, economic and social challenges- call for all hands to be on deck, and goodwill and support for government , as it strives to put the nation on an even keel . We commend organised labour for putting the country first .


“ Those sponsoring and encouraging discord and anarchy , either for selfish ends , or as revenge for perceived injuries , are enemies of the country . Nigerians are urged to beware of them , as the Muhammadu Buhari government is only interested in engendering better quality of life for the citizenry . Nothing more. ”

ADELEGAN CONDEMNS VIOLENCE- Accuses APC, PDP of encouraging violence

 


The Action Democratic Congress candidate in the forthcoming Ondo state election Prince Dapo Adelegan has condemned strongly the recent spate of political violence in the state, he did this during a courtesy visit paid by the VoteNotFight courtesy visit to his campaign office in Akure. 


Adelegan, a leading candidate in the election condemned heavily the culture of political violence which he says was institutionalized by the APC and PDP in Ondo state. 


He stated 'the life of a single person is not worth being lost for seeking power, if democracy is for the people and by the people, why should people then be sacrificed on the altar of political campaign?' 


He stated clearly that 'APC and PDP have elevated thuggery and political war to a new level in our politicking in Nigeria and that does not augur well for our society' 


He further stated that the people need to hold them accountable and urged the youths to hold them responsible for acts of violence carried out during the election stating that there are documented cases of thugs in campaign cars of some candidates brandishing guns and weapons. 


He continued that the circle of getting power by violence means it must be sustained in that manner too, saying the general view of Ondo state is that it's a political volatile state which is not encouraging to development. 


He stated that several sons of the state are afraid of coming back home due to such a state of things, he further appealed to people of Ondo state saying 'No society can grow with violence, no society can grow with high level of political crisis every four years' 


He called all the other candidates to come forward and test their ideas in an atmosphere of debate rather than violence and stated that the choice lies with Ondo state people whether to renew a candidate's term or vote them out. 


He urged the people of Ondo state to shun vote buying, saying 'Dont collect 4 thousand and fast for 4years by voting the wrong person'


He thanked the VoteNotFight team for their effort and encouraged them to include in their campaign Voter education.

Nigeria not constructing rail line to Niger Republic but border town -Presidency

 


The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity , Garba Shehu, on Thursday said Nigeria was not building any rail line to Niger Republic .


He said the plan was to construct the rail line up to the border Nigeria shares with the neighbouring country and not into the country itself .


The Minister of Transportation , Rotimi Amaechi, had told State House correspondents on Wednesday that the Federal Executive Council approved $1. 96bn for the construction of a rail line to link Kano, Dutse , Katsina and Maradi in Niger Republic .


“ The second one ( approval) is the award of contract for the development of the proposed Kano -Katsina -Jibia to Matadi rail line in Niger Republic and to Dutse , the capital of Jigawa , for a total cost of $1, 959, 744, 723. 71, inclusive of 7. 5% VAT, ” Amaechi had told reporters .


The announcement generated reactions from stakeholders and the opposition Peoples Democratic Party that accused the government of misplaced priority .


But Shehu , in a series of tweets posted on his Twitter handle , @ GarShehu , on Thursday, claimed that Nigeria would only construct the rail line to the border it shares with Niger Republic in Maradi .


The presidential aide wrote, “ Nigeria isn’ t building rail line into Niger but , only to the designated border point.


“ An agreement between Nigeria and Niger in 2015, coordinated by the Nigeria -Niger Joint Commission for Cooperation has a plan for Kano-Katsina- Maradi Corridor Master Plan, K2M as it is called.


“ Going by this , the two nations would each build a rail track to meet at the border town of Maradi.


“ Nigerian delegates to that meeting comprised officials from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, National Boundaries Commission, Federal Ministry of Industry, Trade and Investment , Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, Water Resources as well as those of Kano and Katsina states .


“ The objective of the rail is the harnessing of raw materials , mineral resources and agricultural produce.


“ When completed, it will serve domestic industries and play the role of a viable transportation backbone to the West African subregion , starting with the neighbouring Niger Republic for their export and import logistic chain. ”
