In a new development, the Onitsha sea port has become functional after it was commissioned on Tuesday, October 6th, 2020.
“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).”
The Onitsha sea port has not been functional for decades and quite a number of Nigerians took to Twitter to celebrate following its commissioning.
Below are some Twitter reactions, Photos.
