Transport Infrastrycture and Mobility in Nigeria

  • IC Ogwude


Transport can be viewed as a public utility which supplies essential goods and services, where essential means they cannot be cut off without danger of total or partial collapse of an economy. In what follows, the transport situation in Nigeria is reviewed in order to provide a somewhat qualitative impression of the need to rebuild the infrastructure. Then follows a comment on the transport policy to the extent to which it provides a guide to planning in the sector. A review of the current reform efforts is next provided along with proposed institutional frameworks. The paper concludes with a list of investment programmes proposed to support the implementation of the seven-point agenda on the transport sector.
