Created by a multidisciplinary team of statisticians, computer scientists, and economists, this bank will be a decision-making tool for the programming of national sectoral policies. Once operational, it will guarantee the centralization, non-redundancy, and harmonization of information from various state and non-state sources.

Let’s note that a preliminary field survey was initiated in November 2015 by the Nigerian Institute of Transport Technology (NITT), in partnership with the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) for the feasibility of this project. The transport sector contributes about 1.6% to Nigeria’s nominal GDP.
