The Executive Secretary and Chief Executive Officer of the Nigerian Shippers’ Council, Hon. Emmanuel Jime has said that all outstanding issues in the Full Business Case (FBC) and the Concessionaire agreement that would drive the development of Ibadan Inland Dry Port have been resolved

Jime, made the declaration when he led the agency’s management team on a courtesy visit to the Governor of Oyo State, Engineer Seyi Makinde at the Government House in Ibadan.

He commended the state government for the pivotal role it has played towards the actualisation of Ibadan Inland Dry port, revealing that the host state has agreed to provide the necessary infrastructure that would assist the successful take-off of the project; a critical one being a link road from the entrance/exit of Ibadan Dry Port and a frame bridge at the entrance/exit of Ibadan Dry Port.

Others are a connection of Ibadan Inland Dry Port to 33KV power supply, reconstruction of Oyo – Ibadan to Moniya-Iseyin link road.

According to the ES, the outstanding issues that have not been addressed by Oyo State Government include the payment of compensation for the ninety hectares of land acquired for the project, provision of infrastructure and as well as need for engagement with host communities and stakeholders for support.

Responding, Governor Makinde welcomed the new NSC boss and his team to the Government House, wishing him successful tenure as the CEO of the Council.

 He said that the state wants the Ibadan Dry Port project to be operational while assuring that the host state will give the Council maximum support for the project.

His words “The IDP is a project after this administration’s heart. We are really interested in the completion of the project. We want to know when we will be able to lift the first cargo from the dry port.”

According to him, Oyo State Government wants to partner with the Council for the speedy realisation of the project and as such appealed to Council to bring to the government’s notice those things that they are doing that may impact negatively and vice versa.
