NPA Board Members after examining several suggestions as stated in the communiqué went back to their initial decision of building the port in Ngeme, a seashore locality in the Limbe II Sub-division of Fako Division, South West Region.

The site was relocated to Isonge in 2013 on accounts that the first choice was narrow and that compensation payments were going to take a toll on government.
