The Onitsha sea port started functional after it was commissioned on Tuesday, October 6, 2020.

Henceforth, containers will be shipped directly from China to Onitsha river port.

The sea port has been non-functional for decades. There are containers being off loaded to show it has started functional.

According to the presidential aide, Tolu Ogunlesi, he said: "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!!"

"So someone just pointed out to me that on the Maersk website,Onitsha is now available as a port of final destination. A vessel departing Shanghai Oct 10 (this Sat) has Onitsha listed as terminal port (arrival Dec 2, 2020)."

Below are some Twitter user reactions and photos over functional of the sea port once again after decades:
