[NEWS] AMBODE URGES NIGERIAN GOVT TO MAKE OTHER SEAPORTS FUNCTIONAL

LAGOS STATE GOVERNOR, AKINWUNMI AMBODE, ON WEDNESDAY ASKED THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT TO ENSURE THAT SEAPORTS IN OTHER PARTS OF THE COUNTRY BECOME FUNCTIONAL TO DECONGEST APAPA PORT AND EASE GRIDLOCK.

 

AMBODE WHO MADE THE PLEA AT THE 2018 THIRD QUARTERLY TOWN HALL MEETING IN IBEJU-LEKKI AREA OF LAGOS, ALSO CALLED FOR THE REDUCTION OF THE NUMBERS OF TANK FARMS TO PREVENT THE PERSISTENT OCCURRENCE OF TRAFFIC CONGESTION IN APAPA AND ITS ENVIRONS.

 

ACCORDING TO HIM, THE DISTRIBUTION OF TANK FARMS TO OTHER PARTS OF THE STATE IS NECESSARY AS CONCENTRATION OF ABOUT 68 TANK FARMS IN ONE PLACE IS RISKY IN THE LONG RUN.
