Nigerian govt delaying our seaport project, investors ready – Gov Akeredolu

Ondo State Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu has said the planned Ondo Sea Port Project will not be abandoned.

The Governor disclosed that some investors have expressed interest in the project already but that its take-off was being delayed because of approval from the federal government.

He disclosed this on Friday while speaking at a retreat organised for state political office holders and accounting officers, held at Owo, headquarters of Owo Local Government Area of the state.

While emphasizing his administration’s commitment to the development of the Ondo Deep Seaport project, Akeredolu said once completed, the port will service not only Nigeria but the entire West African region.

While describing the delay in the commencement of the Port project as one of the consequences of federalism, the Governor suggested that states be allowed to build their seaports if investors show commensurate interest.

He emphasized that nothing will prevent the project from becoming a reality and that when it does, it will produce a large number of job opportunities.
