According to Prof. Ben Ayade, one of the unique features of the Bakassi Deep Seaport is its access to the 275 kilometres evacuation corridor which connects to some other states in Nigeria.
“The unique advantage of our Bakassi Deep Seaport is its access to a vast armada of great opportunity via her evacuation corridor.
