NAGAFF seeks public hearing on ports


The National Association of Government Approved
Freight Forwarders (NAGAFF) has called for a public hearing on the port
operations as the year draws to a close.

Founder of the association, Dr Boniface
Aniebonam, said the state of the port access roads and the perennial traffic
gridlock had made it very challenging coming for business in the ports.

He said that based on international standard, the
port access roads should have been built in at least eight lanes close to the
port corridors, to give enough room to trucks operating in the ports.

He said that so much man-hour had been lost to
the traffic gridlock where people spent several unproductive hours held on in
traffic.

Aniebonam decried the harsh working conditions
that the truck drivers find themselves.

He said it was sad that nobody had thought in the
line of what the drivers were faced with daily, which sometimes extended into
week-long queue.
