Abia State Governor, Dr Alex Otti, has announced plans for the first-ever seaport in South Eastern Nigeria.
The project which will be located in Owazza, Ụkwa East LGA Abia state will be flagged-off on 30th September 2023 (today).
Governor Otti made this announcement at the ongoing South-East Security Summit in Owerri, Imo state.
The Governor also announced that the flag off of the seaport will be done together with the Abia industrial and innovation park, located on over 1,000 hectares of land. It would host multiple layers of businesses including modular refineries and petrochemical and fertiliser plants.
He also revealed several other chains of enterprises that would take advantage of the oil and gas deposits in Ukwa, nearness to Aba and Port Harcourt cities.
According to Gov. Otti, his government had already secured the support of a major stakeholder to build an innovation and incubation centre within the Park.
