The Federal Government of Nigeria through the Nigerian Shippers’, intends to facilitate the establishment of a Truck Transit Park facility, Obollo-Afor, Enugu State via a Public Private Partnership arrangement on a Build-Operate and Transfer basis (the Project or “Obollo-Afor TTP Project”).

NSC is desirous of procuring a Concessionaire/Developer to design, build, finance, manage and operate a Truck Transit Park, Obollo-Afor, Enugu State, and transfer the facility back to the Nigerian Shippers’ Council (NSC) after an agreed period of time, on a Build-Operate-Transfer basis.

In line with the extant laws and regulations as stipulated for Public Private Partnership procurement process, NSC engaged the services of Catamaran Nigeria Limited to act as Transaction Advisors, to anchor pre- development phase as well as providing assistance to the Ministry in procuring a credible and capable Concessionaire that would undertake the development of the TTP facility.

The pre-development phase of the Project culminated in the development of an Outline Business Case submitted to the Infrastructure Concession and Regulatory Commission.
