Governor Umo Eno yesterday sought President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s support towards completion of the moribund Ibom Deep Sea Port and oil palm projects in Akwa Ibom State.

Fielding questions from State House reporters after a meeting with the president at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, the governor described Tinubu as a businessman, hence his decision to revert to the shrewd business disposition of the President to see to the completion of the projects.

Specifically, he said his administration had started the process of revamping the moribund industry that had laid unattended to for 28 years but currently being revamped by the authorities.

“We can even get to exporting palm oil, because right now, we’re still importing a lot of it,” he said.

He added, “He is the President of Nigeria, he needs to know how one of his component states is doing.

“Ibom Deep Sea Port has the deepest wharf that will bring in ship and we can ship from that point. Lagos is there. But you also know that Lagos is congested.

“You need a deep seaport that will take care of the South East, South South, if you like, the Niger Delta region.”
