Onitsha sea port Reopens after decades

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

Videos and 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!!”

 

He added: “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).”

The Onitsha seaport has been non-functional for decades and Nigerians took to Twitter to rejoice after it was commissioned.
