Another landmark project! A Chinese company is building a world-class deep sea port in Nigeria.
The Edo State government on Monday signed an agreement with a Chinese firm, China Harbour Engineering Company (CHEC) to build a port on the Benin River.
Governor Godwin Obaseki and the company’s vice president Li Yi signed the agreement for both parties in a ceremony held at the Nigerian Embassy in Beijing, China.
Obaseki said the agreement was to build a port on the Benin River, dredge the river which is a channel of about 40 kilometres, and to build a link road to join the bye pass.
The proposed port would link Lekki deep sea port and help decongest the ports in Lagos, the governor said.
