Akwa Ibom Deep Sea Port To Be Completed Next Year

The Nigeria Shippers Council (NSC) has projected next year for the completion of Ibom Deep Sea Port in Akwa Ibom State.
NSC Executive Secretary  Hassan Bello made this known in Uyo while  speaking on the challenges confronting ports operations.
He estimated that the Ibom and Lekki Deep seaports, Lagos State will generate at least 180,000 jobs for Nigerians when operational.
“There should be intra and inter ports competition. Based on this, we are also glad that two new important ports will operate in 2021. The Lekki Deep Sea Port and the Ibom Deep Sea Port.
“These are very important contributions of government through public private partnerships. Lekki, for example, will create about 180,000 jobs. The same thing with Ibom and I want to congratulate the government of Akwa Ibom and the Federal Government in all these PPPs.
“So, we are looking forward to their coming but the shippers’ council is always alert on what type of ports are we going to have. I say this because there are conventional ports and there are modern ports.”
