Lekki Deep Seaport To Begin Commercial Activities In September
The Lekki Deep Seaport in Lagos state, South-West Nigeria, will open for business in September 2022.
Mr. Rotimi Amaechi, the Minister of Transportation, stated this after inspecting the ongoing project at the port.
Mr. Amaechi stated that the Lekki Deep Port will contribute $360 billion to the nation’s GDP over the next 45 years.
On the project’s need for expansion, the minister stated, “the need for extension will be understated if we ignore it.” Now that there are 5,000 people, we need to have a conversation with the community and the Lagos state government, and make plans for their reorientation.”
Mr Amaechi said “you won’t see that market you see in Apapa and tinka here, everything is automated from the gate till you get here. You will see something close to what you have in Dubai and what you have in Singapore.”
