A Nairalander had a ready reply to another who took to Nairalander to suggest Niger Delta states should not build seaports. The first person gping by the moniker bakynes, said:
PH has a Port as well as Warri,Calabar and they are neighbouring states to Baylesa. Must every state with access to Sea have a Seaport?
All SS states have plans to build a deep Seaport how visible is that?
Edo wants to build Gelegele deep Seaport, Cross-River wants to build a new deep seaport ,Ibaka deep Seaport in Akwa-ibom, Now Agge deep Seaport in Bayelsa with the existing ones in Calabar,Warri,PH and Onne ports.
Some will definitely experience low patronage because ships can only berth/land in a few ports around the same axis.
These words from bakynes ignited the anger of another Nauralander, IamEmem, probably from Bayelsa who blasted him with the following hot words:
How it your problem if the governors of the SS decides to build deep seaport for economic growth..Bad belle.
so in your mind the Apapa seaport should be the only functional port in Nigeria abi?
BTW Lagos state government is also planning the Badagry seaport, so what is your problem.
The Bayelsa people have the right to own a deep seaport port to boost trade and commerce.
IamEmem probably forgot to add the Lekki seaport which is currently under construction. The more functional seaports our country has, the better.
