Trucks parked in Lagos ports to be arrested from February 27 – Hadiza
Hadiza Bala Usman, executive director of the Nigerian Port Authority (NPA), says trucks found in the Lagos port corridor since February 27 will be arrested.
In an interactive meeting with editors on Thursday, Usman revealed that seven trailer parks for trucks have been set up around the ports of Apapa and Tinkan Island.
The NPA chief said the Eto app was designed to eliminate human intervention in the truck recall process.
“Sanitizing a port corridor means making a parking space. If you don’t tell people where to park, they’ll park anywhere, ” – said Uthman.
“So, in cooperation with the Lagos State Government, we have seven truck parking lots. This means that you cannot enter the port unless you are parked in the truck stop.
“We will have a lot of rejections, we have already seen kickbacks. If you are found in the harbor corridor, your truck will be confiscated. We work with Federal Highway Traffic Safety, LASTMA and Police Command. “
Usman explained that all trucks entering the ports must be parked in a designated area and will be called electronically when the cargo is ready to receive.
Transhipment was common in the ports of Lagos.
Efforts by the federal government to unload the territory, including the creation of a task force, have not yielded the desired results.
