Rail line may be coming to Maradi

A proposed rail line from Kano, Nigeria, to Maradi, Niger, is planned to cover 248 kilometers.

From the article:

The rail line, which will start from Kano, is to pass through Dambatta, Kazaure, Daura, Mashi, Katsina, Jibia and terminate in Maradi, Niger Republic.

It will connect at least three states in the North, which are Jigawa, Kano and Katsina.

It was also learnt that the rail line, when completed, would assist in the supply of crude oil from Niger Republic to the refinery being built in the border town between both countries.

Details are still being worked out, but it sounds like a very positive development for the region.
