His Excellency, Mahamadou Issoufou, President of Niger, and the members of his cabinet welcomed the herculean task carried out by the Bolloré Group in building the 140 km-long railroad between Niamey and Dosso. The Head of State also emphasized the importance of the public facilities built through this project.
“Niger has experienced a gradual transformation over the past 4 years, and the Bluezones built by the Bolloré Group in Dosso, and more recently in Niamey, attest to this fact.
I am excited and can’t wait until the Niamey-Dosso, as well as the Dosso-Benin Border sections of the railroad, are completed.
I am pleased with the Bolloré Group and their continuous efforts to assist with the development of our country, through the construction Niamey-Dosso railroad section, a component of the Abidjan-Ouagadougou-Niamey-Cotonou rail loop. The Bolloré Group intentions and efforts to continue investing in Niger increases their chances of being entrusted with the construction of the Niamey-Burkina Faso railroad section, in the days to come.
We wish to thank Vincent Bolloré and his Group for trusting in Niger.”
His Excellency, Issoufou Mahamadou, President of the Republic of Niger, Head of State
