Nigerians have expressed their joy when the Onitsha sea port became functional again after it was commissioned Tuesday, 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!!”
