We Need Seaport In Onitsha, Oguta — Imo Stakeholders by Blue3k2: 2:33pm On Jan 02
By Chinonso Alozie

Owerri—Following the new year message by President Muhammadu Buhari, stakeholders in Imo State, yesterday, requested for a seaport to be established in the South-East zone.


Sea port

They made their views known to Vanguard, in Owerri, while reacting to Buhari’s New Year message.

Some argued that the Igbo make up 80 percent of importers of foreign goods in the country and it was wrong for the Federal Government not to consider the zone for a seaport.

They said the neglect of the South-East people  has been the reason the zone has remained underdeveloped.

On the issue of restructuring, they asked President Buhari not to shy away from the reality that what the country needed most is total restructuring.

They reasoned that the inability of the Federal Government to listen to Nigerians was the bane of development in the county.

They added that the 2014 confab report could begin a process for a total restructuring of Nigeria, for the betterment of Nigerians.


In his view on President Buhari’s New Year message, a lawyer and human rights activist, Mr. Wisdom Durueke, said: “The New Year message by the government in this country  has become an annual ritual. The  approach is not organised. When you politicize development, you lose out what you intend to achieve.

“One thing we need to know is that we have been talking about it from the time of Shagari, we have been taking about dredging Oguta, we have talked about Onitsha.

“For me, I do not see any reason why the Federal Government cannot get serious in these areas too. We can have two, three seaports as far as I am concerned. The expected work on Onitsha is abandoned.


“So, I want to say, there is nothing wrong in Mr. President looking at his speech and saying, add Onitsha and Oguta.

“On the issue of restructuring, let me quickly say that  there are different school of thoughts on restructuring. Restructuring does not mean balkanization of the country. I think that is where the Federal Government is getting it wrong.

“When you talk of restructuring, you talk of socio-economic and political restructuring of the country. It is to show equity and to promote integration and coexistence. What the federal government should do is to open the door of discussion on the issue of restructuring.”

Speaking also the National President of Igbo National Council, INC, Mr. Chilos Godsent, “We believe that Nigeria should be restructured to be able to have the enabling ground for everything to move in the right direction.

“We are calling for the total restructuring of the polity. A conference of the people, call it National Conference, call it conference of the people.

“Where contributions will emanate from the different continents nations that make up the Nigeria state, we know that the present National Assembly cannot give us an effective constitution that will be all inclusive restructuring.

“Because we know that some of the National Assembly members are not voted by the people, they rigged themselves, they bought the votes through their God-farthers’.

“The President should invoke the 2014 report of the National conference, that was organized by the last regime, that alone can begin a process.

“This stand of the Presidency on the issue of restructuring will affect the Southeast zone, in all ramifications. The present structure of Nigeria does not encourage merit, hard work, it will affect the Southeast because it is the greatest loser in the whole arrangement.

“The Southeast zone needs Seaport more than any part of this country. The Southeast people are the more than 80 percent importers of foreign goods. So, we need a seaport. Let me also, say this the President should make the already established seaports functional before erecting a new one. If not I call it a monumental waste of funds.”

According to Chibike Onyema, “This new year message of a thing ,I am very tired and I want Nigerians to read their own new Year message to their leaders. Nigerians should find a to do away with these crop of politicians. They have brought us more sadness than joy. This what I can say about the new year message of the president.”

Noted.

Atiku will address all those challenges in 2019, first of June 2019, to be precise.

With the aid of pipes and pumping machine sucking water from River Niger and discharging in Onitsha, a sea port in Onitsha can be achieved.

Lol truth ke truth ni. Made in Aba statistics. The claim is too hyperbolic to take seriously. Igbos some how collectively control import market economically but have no police lobbying power over ports. It's too hilarious how these contradictions work.

Nigeria has bad habit if calling things by improper name. He means river port most likely. Even Edo calling their project a seaport. I dint think it is though.

They are afraid, if Igbos withdraw from patronizing the western seaports they would only be left with skull mining as a means of IGR.

You economic power doesn't translate to anything in reality. You agreed 80% of import market controlled by Igbos. There's simply no data to justify this hyperbolic claim. Shouting cabal doesn't change that.

You suddenly don't know if it's 80%. You called me bias for not agreeing with a claim you don't know and can't prove. You're a silly guy. Lol Igbos control 80-99.99% of import market in fact. This guy was lowballing at 80%.

The economic domainace in importing doesn't translate to lobbying power. The cabal too strong. The cabal also hiding the statistics aswell.

Yea people can qoute something offhead to give i insight..
Even the "statistics" u are shouting for up and down here is not always accurate but just to give u insight of how things are.

Eg saying that populatuon of nigeia is 180million. Its a statistics but that doesnt makr it accurate number of nigeria population.

So yes!!. Igbos has the highest % of importationbiz in the country.

So tell me in specifics the part of Iboland with sea shoreline that you want to build that your Seaport
