Federal Government Approves $3.9bn For The Construction Of Warri Seaport

The Minister of Transportation, Mr Rotimi Amaechi, said the federal government has approved the construction for Warri seaport at the cost of about 3.9 billion dollars and also awarded contract for Abuja-Warri rail line.

Amaechi told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Tuesday in Abuja that the government also approved the linking of Abuja to Itakpe, Itakpe-Warri, then from Warri rail to the seaport.

He, however, said that about 45 billion dollars was needed to complete rail development in the country.

He said that once Lagos-Kano, Port Harcourt-Maduguri, Lagos-Calabar and Abuja-Warri rail lines were constructed, the rail would have covered the country.
According to him, government has not spent over 3 billion dollars so far on all the ongoing projects.

  1. Nice one. They should implement it too not just approve

  2. Replies
    1. very good
      I sha need rail transport from Lagos to Abuja abeg, even Abuja to aba.

  3. I pray this is true.
    Let Lagos seaport be decongested.
    Which rail line would pass through Warri to Portharcourt?

  4. And when is the South East getting a seaport?
    It's long overdue!
    We need one in Onitsha.

  5. Haters will always hate. Even people like Teejay won’t comment on something good like this.

  6. no rail in south convenient

  7. Just another avenue to siphon public funds. Every year, huge sums of money are spent or allocated on white elephant projects but they never see the light of day. That was how Stella Odua and her Oga borrowed millions from China for remodeling of Airports. How much did Ghana spend on that beautiful Kotoko International Airport? Nigeria has a lot of money but they steal everything in the name of awarding contracts. They better build this seaport oo because the money plenty. It better not turn into another Dasukigate.
