Shippers’ Council seeks Lagos government’s support on seamless port operations
The Nigerian Shippers’ Council (NSC) has sought synergy with Lagos State government over the adoption of a multimodal approach to cargo delivery and evacuation, 24-hour port operations, digitalisation of the port and traffic management.
Executive Secretary/Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of NSC, Hassan Bello, made the plea while on a working visit to the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, in his office at Alausa, Ikeja.
A statement signed by Head, Public Relations of the Council, Rekiya Zubair, said that Bello, while discussing the issues affecting the maritime industry in the state, emphasised the importance of synergy and co-ordination, stressing that provision of infrastructure must be prioritised.
The NSC boss, who pledged the Council’s assistance to train officials of the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA) for better service delivery in the port axis, informed the governor about the monthly heads of maritime agencies’ meeting, adding that the synergy brought about by this meeting will impact positively on the maritime sector, leading to economic gains for the nation.
Sanwo-Olu said that the goals of his government aligned with that of the Council in terms of restoring sanity to Apapa and making Lagos a smart city.
