Olokola Deep Seaport Project like other deep seaport projects in the country has been in the limbo since its conception several years back.

Olokola Deep Seaport project is an initiative of the governments of both Ondo State and Ogun State as it situated between their boundaries.

Considering the enormity of economic values the port will add not only to Ogun State economy but the country in general, the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) and Ogun State Government have met with a view to revive the port..

The two bodies made the resolution at a meeting between the Deputy Governor of Ogun State, Engineer Noimot Oyedele-Salako and the Managing Director of NPA, Ms. Hadiza Bala Usman, at NPA headquarters in Lagos.

The Ogun State Deputy Governor was accompanied by other top Ogun State Government officials and the Technical Partners to the project from Abu Dhabi Ports.

Speaking, Managing Director, NPA, called for greater cooperation amongst stakeholders saying that the Federal Government 25 Years Port Master Plan is in order to grow the port industry in the country.
