Paper examines the recent trends in inter-seaport competition in Nigeria using the net tonnage figure of shipping using the country's 20 ports. The study period is between 1987 and 1996. A hierarchy of port significance emerged with Apapa port on the lead and Calabar on the trail. This was normal. The decline of the Port Harcourt port and the upward movement of Warri port was a significant observation. Keywords: Seaport Competition, Nigeria.
