The Lagos State Government has urged Unions in the transport sector to co-operate with the Government as it is mutually beneficial in achieving set goals.
The Commissioner for Transportation, Dr. Frederic Oladeinde gave this charge when the leadership of Nigeria Association of Road Transport Owners (NARTO) and Maritime Workers Union of Nigeria (MWUM) paid him a courtesy visit.
Oladeinde said, “the State Government is not unaware of the challenges faced in the sector,” adding that, “the Sanwo-Olu’s administration is going the whole haul in ensuring ease of doing business in the sector.”
Commending the Lagos State Government on the roles played at reducing the spate of extortion drastically at the ports, the Executive Secretary, Nigeria Association of Road Transport Owners, Mr. Aloga Ogbogbo expressed the displeasure of the Unions on the activities of miscreants at the ports, noting that they hinder the smooth operations of the truckers.
Allaying the worries of the unions, he said, “the State Government has been working with the Truck Transit Park (TTP) and the Nigerian Port Authorities (NPA) to ease all encumbrances affecting smooth run of the ports.”
