The Federal Government is set to send 300 Nigerians to Portugal to study railway engineering, the Minister of Transportation, Mr. Rotimi Amaechi has disclosed.

This is in addition to the 300 sent to China in 2019.

According to Amaechi, the 300 to be sent to Portugal will study the technology in the building of Kano-Maradi rail line.

The Minister disclosed this via a Twitter post on Monday ahead of the ground-breaking for the construction of the rail line.

“This year, we’ll be sending another 300 to Portugal to study the technology in the building of the Kano-Maradi rail-line, which is purely European.”

“The ground-breaking ceremony would formally kick off work on the 284km standard gauge rail project to be undertaken by Messrs Mota-Engil Nigeria Ltd, a Portuguese firm.

The line, according to the Minister, has been designed to pass through major cities, towns and villages without dividing them to facilitate public transportation and stimulate the development of the agricultural economy and manufacturing industries along the corridor.

The project is planned to have a total of 15 stations including Maradi which comprises two main stations in Kano and Katsina, three medium stations in Kazaure, Daura and Jibiya, three small stations in Shagalle, Dambatta and Mashi, with other Halt stations at the Airport, Kunya Dube, Muduru, Daddara, Anoal Mata and Maradi.

“The rail line which has a branch line to Kano-Dutse is important because of it potential in harnessing raw materials and agro products along the corridor.

The ground breaking which will be done by Mr. President Muhammadu Buhari will be attended by the Minister of Transportation of Niger Republic, Governors, Ambassadors, Ministers of both countries and other stakeholders in the sector.
