The distance from the mighty Lagos Seaport to the Atlantic Ocean is 60 nautical miles, but the potential OSEAKWA Seaport, which the Nigerian government abandoned in 1959, is only 18 nautical miles away and has a depth of 20 mft. Inferring from the above, shipping goods from China to Lagos via the Lagos Seaport is very far from shipping goods from China to Oseakwa Ihiala via the Seaport at Urashi Ihiala, Anambra state. 

Additionally, it implies that businessmen from Imo, Abia, Enugu, Ebonyi, Anambra, Rivers, Delta, Edo, Beyelsa, Benue, Kogi, and Akwaibom who live in Lagos will find it simple to conduct business in the south-east, south-south, and north central regions by using Oseakwa seaport when and if it is dredged. Make it popular.

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