|Cargo Diversion To Eastern Ports Not Negotiable, Says ANLCA by bmwestafrica: 8:16pm On Feb 13, 2020|
By Izuchukwu Ozoemena
The double posture the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) is presenting lately on the issue of cargo diversion to the eastern ports notwithstanding, the Association of Nigeria Licensed Customs Agents (ANLCA) insists that the directive is long overdue and must be made to work. ANLCA President, Hon Tony Iju Nwabunike stated this in Lagos during a press interaction.
In furtherance of the directive designed to contain ports congestion and allied problems, he argued,the Federal Government should, as a matter of fact, hasten efforts to dredge Calabar and Warrior Port channels so as to create opportunities for bigger vessels while decentralizing cargo movement to various ports, tackling congestion in Lagos ports and creating what he calls balancing in economic growth arising from even distribution of business opportunities.
"We thank the government for its interest in getting Calabar Port work at optimal capacity and advise that the contractor given the dredging work be directed to commence operations. This dredging will go a long way to make the port more accommodating for ships and reduce the pressure on some of the ports in present use in the country." He noted that Calabar Port has proximity by road to the northern part of Nigeria.

Honestly, it's non-negotiable.
Lagos port needs to be decongest as soon as possible.
