“This is a welcome development and cheering news to the people of the Southeast and Nigerians. This is the best Independence gift to the Southeast. The President has provided the opportunity towards resuscitation of the moribund Onitsha seaport,”.
Moghalu was also advised to do his best in seeing that things committed to his hand live to the expectation of President Buhari and Nigerians.
“Moghalu as a moralist, selfless, patriotic, humble, honest and servant leader must bear the interest and social well being of the citizens at heart by rehabilitating the decrepit and deplorable Onitsha seaport to boost economic activities in the Southeast, as well as give them a sense of belonging,” he said.
