APAPA TRAFFIC: NPA And Truck Owners Adopt Temporary Call-Up System
The gridlock on Apapa has defied several solutions but the Nigeria Ports Authority and truck owners are teaming up to try one more solution.
The new solution is a temporary manual call-up system and the truck drivers under a coalition of the Association of Maritime Truck Owners, AMATO and Container Truck Owners Association, COTOAN have expressed confidence that this could work.
The body made this known on Monday in Lagos in a joint statement by Remi Ogungbemi and Wasiu Oloruntoyin for AMATO and COTOAN respectively.
They said that the management of the Nigerian Ports Authority, NPA introduced the system to address the difficult traffic situation which has been a burden.
The organisations therefore, called on all members of the trucking associations to comply with the initiative for the greater economic benefit of all.
“In view of the gridlock staring the faces of truckers, stakeholders in maritime industry, Apapa residents and public at large, all our members are hereby directed to follow the newly-introduced call-up system by the NPA Management.
“This initiative by the NPA is to help regulate the movement of all trucks/tankers into the ports and Tank Farms.”
