Benin Port Project
Request for Qualification for Private Partners
The Edo State Government is redeveloping one of Nigeria’s oldest pre-colonial port as a multi-purpose port co-located with an agro-industrial park. The new site for the port, relocated downstream the Osse River to the Benin River, will provide 20 hectares of real estate for the port and 717 hectares for the larger port community, connected to Benin City via a 49.5km access road.
The project has been certified by the Federal Government of Nigeria through the Infrastructure Concession Regulatory Commission (ICRC) as eligible for a Public Private Partnership (PPP) with the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) as a counterparty.
