President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday unveiled the Lekki Deep Sea Port, the largest in Nigeria and in Sub-Saharan Africa.
The multi-purpose Deep Sea Port offers enormous support to the burgeoning commercial operations across Nigeria and the entire West African region.
The unveiling of the Port is part of Buhari’s project inauguration in Lagos.
Buhari did not speak before and after unveiling the project. He, however, took a brief inspection trip around the project to inspect the facilities.
Speaking at the event, Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, said the Lekki Deep Sea Port is a total combination of the efforts of the Federal Government, Lagos State Government and the private sector.

He stated that the project was started and completed in the administration of Buhari, adding the size of vessels that would be coming to the Lekki Port could be up to four times the size of vessels that currently berth at both Tin Can and Apapa Ports.
The elated governor said the project would provide thousands of direct and hundreds of thousands indirect jobs to Lagosians and thanked all that brought it to reality.
In his words: “The project is a total combination of efforts of the Federal Government, Lagos State and the private sector and we are happy that this is happening in your time.
“It all started within your time and it has been completed within your time. The size of vessels that will be coming here could be up to four times the size of vessels that currently berth at both Tin Can and Apapa Ports.
“So, it is a massive infrastructure and we are indeed excited that something fresh has been impacted into this country and it is going to generate thousands and thousands jobs directly and hundreds of thousands of jobs indirectly in the entire ecosystem and this is your own project and we are excited.”
