Nigerians Jubilate As Onitsha Sea Port Becomes Functional After Decades (Photos/Video)

Nigerians took to Twitter to rejoice after Onitsha seaport was commissioned as it was abandoned for decades.

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!!”
