It’s been very long overdue having a see port here in Lagos to sustain the overload from the tincan. We can do great things with a well functioning see port with a good road network to distribute goods on time. Well done to the government for this achievement. Maintenance is the key.

Emergence of the sea port in Lekki is one of the ways the government will benefit from making revenue. Enough goods will be transported and well and adequately taxed. It will also help to improve bilateral trade between Nigeria and other countries through the sea port. I just hope the officials involved in the management of the sea port are efficient and effective while carrying out their work.
