Senate Wants Inland Ports In Onitsha, Enugu, Aba, Others by centvin008(m): 9:03am On Nov 23, 2016
ABUJA—THE Senate, yesterday, asked the Federal Government to urgently establish inland ports in Onitsha, Enugu, Aba, Maiduguri, Bauchi and other land-locked states in the country to help accelerate commerce and industry.

The Senate also directed the Nigerian Shippers Council to carry out appropriate feasibility studies to facilitate establishment of the ports. It equally mandated its committees on transport and works to ensure full compliance with planned establishment of the ports, stressing that the feasibility studies earlier carried out on the establishment of inland ports should be revisited.
The resolutions of the Senate were sequel to a motion sponsored by Senator Stella Oduah (PDP, Anambra North) entitled Need for the Establishment of Dry and Inland Ports at Onitsha, Enugu and other land-locked states. In her presentation, Senator Oduah explained that the development of dry ports and inland water transport in the land-locked areas would facilitate commercial and industrial activities in exportation and importation of raw materials and equipment. According to her, the existing ports in Lagos, Port Harcourt and Calabar were being over stretched, contending that congestion of these ports constituted serious security threat to lives and properties. In his remarks, President of the Senate, Dr. Bukola Saraki, mandated the relevant committees to ensure that the Federal Government gives priority attention to establishment of the inland ports in the affected states

It defies logic that the FG does not understand the importance of having more seaports in a country as big as Nigeria to boost commerce and haulage of goods.

Good!

I'm loving this Senate by the minute!

This is what the presidency should be working on, not borrowing cash from enslavers just to continue to search for oyeh in the Chad basin of the north.

This is division of economic growth and development.

What a monumental waste of senatorial intervention.

When an entire government thinks through the Anus.

Port at Onitsha...no problem.

Port at Aba...White elephant

Port at Enugu...White Orca

It's even another wasted White Elephant that is sponsoring this lunatic insinuations...

Illitrates with a poor sense of Geography. You can establish an inland port in Onitsha, but not in Aba or Enugu or Maiduguri as these towns have no major navigable river that links to the Oceon. I wonder if these bunch of goats ever read or do a survey before talking.

Wonderful move by Ezigbo Nwaada Igbo, Oriaku Oduah and the Senate.

However, Passing the Resolution isn't just enough, Senate should go ahead to ensure that the Inland Ports make their way into the 2017 Budget. Then we will know that they are really interested in the economic expansion.

Leaving it to the whims of the confused Executive will just make the dream dead on arrival.

Stella Odua is really a lioness to Igbos despite being so corrupt. I love her good plans towards the Igbo nation considering her bills in the senate. For takn ds bold step repeatedly, she's won my respect!

I wish oda Igbo senators like Nnaji, Egwu, Ubah, Abaribe n co... Could hv the Igbo nation at heart like Stella...
