The almighty Lagos Seaport to the Atlantic Ocean is 60 nautical miles, While the Potential OSEAKWA Seaport that was abandoned in 1959 by the Nigerian government is only 18 nautical miles to the Atlantic Ocean with a depth of 20mft.

By implication, shipping goods from China to Lagos with Lagos Seaport is very far than shipping goods from China to Oseakwa Ihiala, using the Seaport at Urashi Ihiala Anambra state.

It also implies that Imo, Abia, Enugu, Ebonyi, Anambra, Rivers, Delta, Edo, Bayelsa, Benue, Kogi and Akwaibom businessmen living in Lagos will find it easy to have their business in the south- East, South-south and North Central by using Oseakwa seaport when and if it’s dredged.

This deep seaport will create over two million jobs, directly and indirectly, in the marine business, oil and gas, power, education, housing, agro-food industry, entertainment, tourism, etc.
