The Federal Government has said that the Lekki Deep Seaport project would create one hundred and twelve thousand jobs to Nigerians upon its completion.
The Minister of Transportation, Mu’azu Sambo, who made this known in Jalingo, Taraba State capital while addressing journalists said the port which is second in Nigeria after Onne Deep-Sea port would bring more tonnage and revenue to the port and the country.
He further explained that the project would impact positively on the nation’s economy.
The minister said, it is significant because the largest ships in the world can berth at the Port. That means, more tonnage, more cargo, more revenue for the port and for the country, more economic activities; and above all, more jobs.
