Forget The June Deadline, Apapa Road Won’t Be Ready Until September
So, it is not impossible to complete the ongoing rehabilitation at Apapa port access road by June this year as earlier set by the government.
But the truth now is that the road will not be ready until the third quarter of this year, which is between July and September.
This new reality is being presented by Mr. Jude Oboh who is from the Presidential Enabling Business Environment Council.
He disclosed this in Lagos on Wednesday while addressing reporters.
He gave the assurance that the government and its representatives were physically present at the ports and aware of all the challenges that the operators were facing.
According to him, infrastructure is a long-term project and takes time to execute.
On the clearing processes around the ports, Oboh stated that the government was currently looking into the export processes, Customs and Excise Management Act, as well as collating inputs from stakeholders on how the National Single Window should work.
He encouraged people to send in their inputs to the council secretariat.
Oboh added that the council had established a website, (www.pebec.report) for people to register any complaints or reports they might have against government agencies operating at the seaports.
