Temporary excitement has swept across Southeast Nigeria following an announcement by the Governor of Abia State, His Excellency Alex Otti, regarding the establishment of a seaport within the region.
Governor Alex Otti made this significant declaration during the South East Security Summit held in Owerri, Imo State, Nigeria.
The proposed seaport is earmarked for construction in Owazza, situated within the Ukwa East Local Government Area of Abia State. Notably, the official commencement of this ambitious project is scheduled for Saturday, September 30, 2023.
Governor Otti’s administration has been actively fulfilling campaign promises, with a recent highlight being the commissioning of three major road projects within Abia State.
These projects include Phase 1 Cemetry Road, Emelogu Road, and Shalom Road, reflecting a commitment to bolstering infrastructure and addressing longstanding concerns that persisted during the previous Okezie Ikpeazu administration.
