Nigeria: economic benefits of railway transportation

StockmarketNigeria discusses the economic benefits of railway transportation in Nigeria: “The resuscitation of rail transportation in Nigeria had only been more of a political promise since the exit of the British from Nigerian governance in first October, 1960.The encouraging economic growth recorded within the colonial era due to agriculture was largely supported and facilitated by the effective north to south railway transportation of agricultural products connecting the sea ports for export/import activities.”
