Thank You, Buhari: Nigerians Rejoice As Onitsha Seaport Becomes Functional After Decades

Tuesday, October 6, Onitsha Seaport was commissioned and it’s now functional. Photos and videos of containers being offloaded have surfaced online.

The Presidential aide, Tolu Ogunlesi said;

“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!!”

“So someone just pointed out to me that on the Maersk website,Onitsha is now available as a port of final destination. A vessel departing Shanghai Oct 10 (this Sat) has Onitsha listed as terminal port (arrival Dec 2, 2020).”
