Following declaration by the Vice President, Prof Yemi Osinbajo that some government agencies were frustrating the federal government’s Ease of Doing Business policy, licenced customs agents and government agencies operating at the ports are trading blames over delays in cargo clearance at the ports.
During an unscheduled visit to the Ports Terminal Multiservices Limited (PTML) Port in Lagos, by officials of the Customs Headquarters Public Relations Unit, the agents blamed government agencies of perpetuating illegality.
The visit caught the port users and terminal operators unaware ahead of their agreed 11am joint examination time.
Deputy Comptroller in charge of B1 terminal, Adamu Sanusi, told THISDAY that as a strategy for quick clearance of goods from the terminal, 14 Assistant Comptrollers were assigned to oversee 14 teams for fast and efficient service delivery.
