Along these lines, we can abstain from returning to where we have gotten ourselves,"

Complimenting the electronic call-up framework presented by NPA, Maiguwa said the organization should set up most minor guidelines for the trucks coming into the ports before getting to either the port or the trailer leaving regions.
"This is on the grounds that a portion of these trucks are more terrible than junkyard scraps. In the event that they don't satisfy the least guidelines of activity, one considers how they get stacked to move merchandise. It is for this straightforward explanation of disgracefulness that they in the end separate on out of port and cause a clog. This hole, if not tended to, would wreck the E-call up the framework. Better figure it out now rather than later!" he said.
Maiguwa added: "I might want to express that trucks are not a piece of the primary port foundation expected to help ports activities. There will be a need to remain zeroed in on building ports and assistant foundations through synergistic endeavours. I'm alluding to rails, streets, inland waters-ways and the audit of the ports usual way of doing things as follows incorporates: an arrangement of Yard – Rail Vs Rail – Road ought to be created to its maximum capacity.
"An arrangement of taking out box clearing inside the seaports and taking it entirely to the hinterlands ought to be fused. We needn't bother with customs dillydallying on our streets and seaports. It just guides debasement and advances traffic disarray.
"As Lagos State and the NPA are meeting up, the time has come to think about streets concession, mainly to help the Lekki Ports.
"An arrangement of motivations on port charges reasonable to work seaside and inland holder load vessel should be set up with the goal that shipowners can start to investigate possessing tankers. This is on the grounds that vessel vessels offer more in making dock work than big haulers, something we need to take a gander at on the off chance that we should keep on making occupations."
"It is fundamental to recall that while Lagosians and Nigerians, when all is said in done, are taking warmth from this traffic emergency, the delivery organizations are applying charges in like manner, making the expense of material cost to the end-client," he expressed.
