President Muhammadu Buhari has warned operatives of the Nigeria Customs Service and other port officials not to frustrate businesses with processes that could cause unnecessary delays.
The President gave the warning shortly after inaugurating some projects in Kaduna State. The projects include two additional locomotives and ten additional passenger coaches for the Abuja-Kaduna rail service; as well as the new Inland Container Depot.
President Buhari said customs and port officials must make the Kaduna Inland Dry Port work by ensuring business, commercial and industrial enterprises are not frustrated with unnecessary bureaucracy and delays. The President who was pleased with the commissioning of the projects noted that Nigeria’s infrastructure is steadily upgrading.
He commended the Kaduna State government, the Federal Ministry of Transportation, and the Nigerian Shippers’ Council for providing access roads and other utilities which facilitated the establishment of the port. Cue in audio——–Buhari in Kaduna
