The Oyo State Authorities has accomplished cost of compensation to all affected households over using 90 hectares of land at Moniya/Olorisa-Oko earmarked for the N43.2 billion Ibadan Inland Dry Port in Ibadan, Oyo state.
Commending the Oyo State Authorities for the laudable effort, the Government Secretary, Nigerian Shippers Council (NSC), Emmanuel Jime, defined that the company and different events concerned are presently tying up the remaining knotty points to make sure the dry port is ready for operations.
“On the problem of households disputes over compensation, I’m comfortable to tell this gathering that the Oyo State Authorities has accomplished cost of compensation to all of the households concerned on the land for use for the dry port.
“I actually wish to commend the Oyo State Authorities for this, and it behoves on us to finish the remaining leg of the challenge, which has to do with the Full Enterprise Case. Households compensation which was a key half within the position that the Oyo State Authorities should play has now been accomplished,” he mentioned.
“What’s left is for us to take the Full Enterprise Case to the Federal Government Council (FEC) for approval. That may even have been achieved if there was no change within the management of the Federal Ministry of Transportation. As , there’s a new management on the Federal Ministry of Transportation.
“We’ve got met with the brand new Minister of Transportation, and have briefed him on what he must do to make the dry port operational. As soon as the Minister attends to our temporary, I’m certain that the Ibadan Dry Port will take off throughout the shortest time obtainable.”
