Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi has Speaks on the importance of decongestion of Lagos seaports.
Nigeriapenng reports that he wondered why the Lagos ports are being congested, even with many other deep seaports across the nation.
Obi, in a post on his social media handle on Wednesday, said the congestion of the Lagos ports had created avoidable bottlenecks in the maritime sector when it comes to imports and exports.
“The Nigeria maritime sector is robust and ought to grow stronger. We are blessed with several deep seaports. However, for some inexplicable reason, we tend to cluster our import and export activities around the Lagos ports, thus creating avoidable bottlenecks,” he said.
The former Anambra governor, in his recommendation, said, “We should decongest Lagos ports via a deliberate policy of incentivizing end-destination priorities.”
This, according to him, would “curtail on-land heavy haulage transshipments that take a toll on our road infrastructure.”
