BEARS: Apapa Gridlock - New Year, Old Problem

Apapa Traffic

The Apapa traffic pandemonium has outlived 2018 despite several efforts of the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA), countless stakeholders’ meetings and deliberations.

As the problem persists, a chieftain of the Federation of Agricultural Commodity Associations of Nigeria (FACAN), Mr. Peter Bakare on Thursday last week urged the Federal Government to provide an alternative seaport to the Apapa Port and revive other moribund ports for export of agricultural produce.

Bakare who is the Deputy Executive Secretary, FECAN indicated this in Abuja, stressing the need to urgently eliminate the intractable delay at the Apapa port, saying it was time-consuming, cumbersome, expensive for exporters and adversely affecting the revenue base of the country.
