Peter Obi calls for decongestion of Lagos seaport

 

The Labour party presidential candidate, Peter Obi has expressed concern over why the Lagos ports are being congested, even with many other deep seaports across the nation.

 

In a tweet on his social media account on Wednesday, Obi claimed that the Lagos port’s overcrowding had caused needless bottlenecks in the marine industry’s import and export processes.

“The Nigeria maritime sector is robust and ought to grow stronger. We are blessed with several deep seaports. However, for some inexplicable reason, we tend to cluster our import and export activities around the Lagos ports, thus creating avoidable bottlenecks,” he said.

 

The former Anambra governor, in his recommendation, said, “We should decongest Lagos ports via a deliberate policy of incentivizing end-destination priorities.”

This, according to him, would “curtail on-land heavy haulage transshipments that take a toll on our road infrastructure.”
