The China Railway Construction Corporation Limited (CRCC) in Beijing and one of its subsidiaries in Nigeria (CCECC) has proposed to cite a University in either Lagos or Port-Harcourt to train Nigerians on technology.
CRCC which ranked as the third largest construction and engineering company in the world last year, presently runs several projects in the country and has plan to transfer technology to Nigeria.
The Executive President, Overseas Operations, CRCC, Cao Baogang, “Nigeria remains the biggest market of the corporation with a robust relationship spanning over 30 years”.
He stated that, the country deserves more than the existing training school and arrangement has been made to establish a university that would train and elevate Nigerians in the area of technological expertise. He also added that, CCECC would not relent in training Nigerians at different levels.
He also revealed that Nigerians constitute 93% of the more than 12,500 local staff in the over 100 projects of the corporation across the nation including the Abuja rail mass transit project from the FCT to Kaduna, Lagos–Ibadan railway project and the Lekki Free zone project, among others.
He pointed out that the corporation was present in 128 countries with 46 in Africa alone, noting that creation of seaport is to enhance economic hub.
He stated that the major setback is the insecurity in the Northern part of Nigeria.
