Nigeria’s most sophisticated and profound seaport, Lagos Lekki Deep Sea Port, was where it docked.

On his official X page, Jubril Gawat, the Senior Special Assistant to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu on New Media, revealed this.

His statement reads partly: “The CMA CGM SCANDOLA has an overall length (LOA) of 366 meters and a width of 51 meters and it is the first LNG-powered container vessel to sail to West Africa arriving first in Tema before coming to Lekki Port.“
