The approval followed the debate by Senators after its general principles were read by the Senate Committee Chairman on TETfund, Ahmad Babba Kaita representing Katsina North Senatorial district.

He said the establishment of the Institution will afford Nigerian students the opportunity to access modern knowledge, emerging techniques and skills in the transport industry.

The lawmaker claimed Nigerians are behind in terms of the transport sector driven economy, hence, the University would be better positioned for capacity building and employment generation.

He emphasised that the Institution would provide the required knowledge to prospective students to enhance Nigeria’s transportation sector and make them drivers of the industry.

“The envisaged University of Transportation has immense benefits, especially in closing the huge gap in knowledge about transportation business and enhancing technical skills while ensuring technology transfer from the most developed nations such as China, USA, South Korea, etc to benefit the Nigerian transportation industry”, Kaita said.
