History was made this evening as fresh tomatoes from Kano arrive Lagos by rail after 58 years. Emmanuel Itoya Ijewere, one of Nigeria’s eminent businessmen, disclosed this at the FirstBank’s maiden Agric Expo 2017, held at Eko Hotel and Suites, on Tuesday.
Ijewere said: “The train left Kano at about 10am yesterday. That is happening for the first time in 58 years. I want to thank those who have made it possible including the minister of Agriculture. After this, it will now be weekly affairs. We will move a lot of these things conveniently.”
