Minister of transportation, Rotimi Amaechi has disclosed that the construction of the University of Transportation, Daura is a donation from the Chinese government as the CCECC is constructing the university for free.

He said that the Chinese government would also build a primary and secondary school which will cater for the educational needs of children whose families work there.

He spoke in Daura, Katsina State, during his maiden inspection tour of the ongoing project.

According to the Minister, the project construction would commence in September and would be completed by the end of next year.

”Construction work will commence in September. What they are doing now is clearing. They have promised to build a primary school and a secondary school in the university.

“This university is a donation by the Chinese government through the China Engineering Construction Corporation, CECC. The Technique, Engineering, and Marketing (TEAM) have also accepted the consultancy job.

Let me also thank the CCECC for accepting to construct the university free of charge. It is not part of the railway contract, we spoke with CCECC and told them to train Nigerians who will take over from them in their technology and they agreed.”


  1. As I’m looking at it, it’s a tit for tat, what they are getting from us is huge amount of money and they need reciprocate, that is what they do. It’s a welcome development, at least it’s another way for creating jobs for Nigerians.

  2. You politicians don’t always tell us the truth
    You say one thing and mean another so I am taking this too with a punch of salt
    All the same congratulations to the people of Daura and kudos to the Chinese firm and government
    I think the president is from Daura if I am not mistaken
    Let his people enjoy why it lasts

  3. Though, it might be give and take but our government needs to be careful not to hand over our resources to the foreigners. We appreciate their gesture but notwithstanding don’t let the foreigners take control of our resources. Our leaders should be wise.

  4. Government needs to be careful.. thing are not supposed to be done that’s way, handling our resources to the Chinese government

  5. At the end of the day before you close your eyes, be content with were you’ve been, and proud of who you are! Good movite
