Buhari, Amaechi, get kudos on the historical berth of the first Maersk Lines Service from China to Onne


The planned arrival of one of the world’s largest vessels to Onne in Rivers State has attracted commendations to President Buhari and Chibuike Amaechi.


While Nigeria and other countries of the world continue to battle the ravaging Covid-19 pandemic which emergence has put a halt to economies and economic activities of nations, the administration of President Mohammadu Buhari is taking very proactive and informed steps towards ensuring that the pandemic does not shatter the economy of Nigeria, Chief Eze Chukwuemeka Eze has said.

Eze, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress and National Publicity Secretary of the defunct New People’s Democratic Party (nPDP), made this observation in a statement made available to media houses in the South-South region of Nigeria. He congratulated Mohammadu Buhari presidency for achieving yet another milestone in the development and expansion of ports to boost economic activities through a robust system of international trade.

President Buhari has executed this major feat under the leadership of the Hon. Minister of Transportation, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Amaechi, whose commitment to service delivery is yielding tremendous results to the nation. All wise leaders know that as you fight the deadly pandemic, you also keep an eye on the economic and any opportunity that can happen despite the crisis, because after rain comes sunshine.

Chief Eze said, through the efforts of the President Buhari-led Federal Government and the initiative of the amiable, workaholic, and competent Minister of Transportation, Rivers State, has made history as the first Maersk lines service is set to berth in Onne directly from China.

The Party Chief emphasised that the milestone became possible after a N3 Billion investment in mobile habour cranes was made to upgrade the port. Maersk had announced that containers from China to Niger/Delta and South-East will now go directly to Onne.

Commenting on the benefits of the initiative, Chief Eze said the development will revive the port and create jobs for the teeming unemployed Niger/Delta and South-East youths. He added that it will boost economic activities and improve the economies of Rivers and other Niger/Delta and South/East states.

Consequently, Chief Eze tasked Nigerians to continue to support the APC-led Federal Government under the headship of Mohammadu Buhari, as the Transportation Minister, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Amaechi, continues to break new grounds and discover fresh opportunities to build the country’s economy for the good of all.”

This has shown that if Nigerians rally round their leadership, the solidarity will bring about bigger investments and economic prosperity for the good of all. It also shows that this son of the South-South and South-East needs more support to do more for the region. Love it or hate him, he is the one now in a key economic sector and must supported to get the most for his people.
