The Onitsha seaport which was non-functional for decades has been 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!!”

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).”
