A general cargo vessel has berthed in the Calabar Port with 204 heavy-duty trucks, 22 cubic meters of mostly pipes and other containers.

Speaking after the arrival of the vessel on Friday in Calabar, Mr Olumati Festus, Port Manager, Calabar Port, said that the port was still viable and of economic benefit to the state and Nigeria.

Festus said that the Calabar Port was safe for berthing, hence the need for customers to patronize them by using the port to clear their general containers.

“The significance of the berthing of this vessel is to tell the world that Calabar Port is active and working. The rumour going round that nothing is happening in Calabar Port is fake.

“The length of this vessel is 190, and this has never happened in recent time in Calabar Port.

“The cargo onboard is 204 trucks, 22 cubic meters of general cargo, especially pipes and we also have some containers in it.

“In the past three years, it has never been like this; we are happy to tell the world that we are receiving a cargo vessel that we have not had in the past three years,”
he said.

He said that the berthing of the ship was in line with the policy of the Managing Director of NPA, Mr Mohammed Bello-Koko, to revamp the port and attract customers.

“The Managing Director of NPA has given us the necessary equipment, working materials and all that is required to work and make the port viable,” he noted.

He said that the arrival of the vessel will generate revenue and employment for residents in Calabar.

He added that over 50 persons were going to support the shipping company in the discharge of the trucks and containers.

Also speaking, Mr Edward Akpan, General Manager of Eco Marine Terminals, Calabar, said that the vessel came into Calabar Port from Singapore.

Akpan said that the vessel conveyed the trucks and other containers for one of their customers.

According to him, the owners of the cargo sees Calabar Port as a preferred terminal based on the support given to them over the years.

Reducing Lagos Monopoly.  This will also be a good idea to decongest Lagos.
