The minister of Transportation, Alhaji Muazu Sambo, has said that the Lekki Deep Sea Port project would create 112,000 jobs for Nigerians.

The minister said this on Sunday in Jalingo, Taraba State capital while addressing journalists, citing that the port, which is second in Nigeria after Onne Deep-Sea port would bring more tonnage and revenue to the port and the country.

According to Sambo, “The Lekki Deep Sea Port project is the second after Onne Deep Sea Port in Nigeria. 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 like I said. Over 112, 000 both direct and indirect jobs will be created as a result of the creation of the Lekki Deep Sea Port.

“This will be in the first few years and as time goes on and as activities expand, the number of the jobs will even multiply and that is what is good for us. For as more jobs we have, the more our ability to put food on the table of many Nigerians,” he said.
