Onitsha Seaport Becomes Operative After Decades (Photos)
Onitsha seaport has become operative after it was commissioned yesterday, October 6. Photos from the scene show containers being offloaded.
According to the presidential aide, Tolu Ogunlesi: “The Plan is to move containers from Lagos & Onne Ports to Onitsha by barge. For now, I believe what’s being done is testing. You need to do a pilot first, assess efficiency, do troubleshooting etc, before you roll out full operations. But if it works as planned it’s gon be a BFD!!”
