The Executive Secretary of Nigerian Shippers Council, Hassan Bello, on Friday, said the council has a dream of building an international resource centre that will cost N15bn in Jos, Plateau State.
Bello spoke at the official commissioning of the NSC North-Central coordinating office complex in Jos.
He said that the council has engaged the Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, to see how the Jos Dry Port could be revitalised.
Bello also expressed the council’s hope that the port will be completed by the first quarter of 2022.
He further stated that the international resource centre would contain hotel, multi-purpose hall amongst other facilities.
“The Nigerian Shippers Council has a dream of building an international resource centre which will cost N15bn in Jos. This is a massive but magnificent monument that will include 5-star hotel, shopping mall, restaurant, multipurpose halls, conference centre (automated), with a capacity of 2,500 people,” he explained.
Bello said that the project will be delivered through Public Private Partnership.
“This project will be delivered through Public Private Partnership and supported at all times by the NSC. This zone, this state, this city deserves no less than this. I am sure I will find support from the Federal Ministry of Transportation, Plateau State Government and the private sector,” he added.
