President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday flagged off the groundbreaking ceremony of the Kano-Katsina-Jibiya-Maradi railway project with a branch line to Dutse in Jigawa State.
Speaking virtually at Kwarin Tama village in Katsina State, the venue of the ceremony, the president said that the project, when completed, will enhance economic activities, particularly the trans-Saharan trade between the two countries.
He urged private investors to take full advantage of the opportunity and engage in legitimate businesses aimed at transforming the nation’s economy.
