The Minister of Transport, Mr Rotimi Amaechi, has said the Federal Government will ensure due process is followed in the construction of the Ibadan Inland Dry Port.

He made the pledge during an inspection tour of the site located at Olorisa-Oko village in Moniya area of Ibadan.

The minister in company with Mr Hassan Bello, the Executive Secretary of Nigeria Shippers Council, was received by the Oyo State Deputy Governor, Chief Moses Adeyemo

“Commencement of work on the project might be experiencing delay presently because government is mindful of following due process in the concessioning of the project,’’ he said.

The minister said government would not be pressurized, but would ensure all necessary documentation was concluded legally.

He said the project would create employment, boost the economy of the state, decongest the seaport, expand the city and ease congestion.
