The Plateau State Government has unveiled plans to bring back to life its Inland Dry Port project located in Heipang, which was terminated by the immediate past administration in the state.
The state Governor, Simon Lalong, announced this when he paid a working visit to the Nigerian Shippers’ Council at the weekend.
Lalong also said he would resuscitate the state’s dry port implementation committee to ensure the successful implementation and execution of the project.
The governor listed some of the benefits expected from the proposed project to include job creation, business opportunity for importers and exporters.
“I want to assure you that immediately I get back home, I will take adequate steps to re-validate and execute the project. I also appeal to other governors to do same because we are talking about developing the economy,” he said.
