Nigerians Rejoice as Onitsha Sea Port Becomes Functional after Decades (photos/video)


Onitsha sea port has become functional after it was commissioned yesterday, October 6.

Videos and photos from the scene show containers being offloaded.

According to 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!!”
