The Nigerian Ports Authority has asked the Lagos and Ogun state governments to make trailer parks available for licensing as part of efforts to address the gridlock on the Apapa Port access roads in Lagos.
As a result, only trucks housed in licensed trailer parks will be able to access the ports, according to the agency.
The Managing Director, NPA, Ms Hadiza Bala-Usman, stated this on Thursday during a courtesy visit to the Punch Place, headquarters of Punch Nigeria Limited in Ogun State.
According to her, the agency has advertised several times for interested stakeholders to come forward for the licensing of their trailer parks without getting encouraging responses.
She attributed this to the challenge with access to land.
