The Nigerian Ports Authority, NPA, and Federal Ministry of Power, Work and Housing, FMWH, are working closely to find lasting solutions to the traffic gridlock along the port access road.

Disclosing this after a tour of the ports in the Western area by Board members for the Authority, chairman of the Board, Emmanuel Olajide Adesoye, said they are working at cushioning the pressure on the roads leading to the port with the rejuvenation of rail lines, the call-up system as well as expansion of the port access roads.

The chairman noted that the management is very much aware of the challenges faced by terminal operators and port users in assessing the port due to the gridlock. According to him, “the board is conscious that badges are currently being used to transfer cargoes from Tin-can and Apapa ports to Ikorodu and Kirikiri Lighter Terminals.” This, according to him, has drastically reduced the congestion affecting service delivery at the seaports.

Adesoye said that on completion, the Lekki Deep sea Port which is a product of Private Public Partnership, PPP would help in the efficient movement of cargo and expressed the strong hope that the port would be a reference point in the Gulf of Guinea.

Earlier, the Port Manager, Tincan Island Port Complex (TCIP), Engineer Emmanuel Akporherhe, while welcoming the Board members to the Port solicited for the renewal of the infrastructure in order to facilitate greater customer satisfaction, saying that some of the existing infrastructure in the port is over 40 years old.
