30 ships expected at Lagos ports

Thirty ships laden with various products are expected to sail into the Lagos ports from April 8 to April 26, the Nigerian Ports Authority(NPA) said on Friday in Lagos.

The NPA disclosed this information in its daily ‘Shipping Position’ made available to newsmen in Lagos.

According to the NPA, 11 of the expected ships are to bring in containers, while four others will arrive with general cargoes.

Food products including frozen fish, bulk sugar and buckwheat are expected to arrive in seven ships, while petrol and diesel will be brought in the remaining eight ships, the NPA said.

Meanwhile, only two ships arrived at the Lagos ports with petrol and aviation fuel, even as the fuel queues remain in all cities across the country.
