Onitsha (Anambra) – The Federal Government has restated its commitment towards ensuring that the Onitsha Inland Waterways and others across the country are viable and functional.
“NIWA Onitsha is the most lucrative Area Office we have. I have visited Port Harcourt, Calabar and Lagos, and all of those offices have what Onitsha has in terms of equipment, manpower and availability of land for expansion,” he said. The Area Manager, NIWA Onitsha, Mrs Uche Amadi, stressed the need for Public, Private Partnership to revive the port and boost economic activities in the area. According to her, the area office has so far generated over N46 million as revenue as at Oct. 31. “A public, private partnership arrangement will boost and diversify the revenue base of the Area office,” she stressed, while appealing to the Federal Government for operational vehicles and necessities to ease the work.
