The Federal Government says Lekki Deep Seaport, in Lagos State will begin full commercial activities in September.

The Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, while inspecting the project in Lagos, said it was a huge achievement for the President Muhammadu Buhari’s led administration.

On contribution of the port to GDP, Amaechi said it would contribute about Three hundred and sixty billion dollars, which is not even enough to accomplish what is needed.

Amaechi reiterated the need for a rail system that would convey both liquid and dry cargoes out of lagos through the ports, saying if this was not done there would be problem.

The minister also said that there was need for extension of the land to enable completion of the project and urged the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) to discuss with the Lagos State government on the issue.
