He noted that the state government was not unaware of the challenges faced in the sector.

He said that Gov. Babajide Sanwo-Olu’s administration was fully committed in ensuring ease of doing business in the sector.

Allaying their worries, the commissioner said that the state government had been working with the Truck Transit Park (TTP) and the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) to ease all encumbrances affecting smooth running of the ports.

He said that relentless efforts were being made toward an improved E-Call Up system.

The Executive Secretary of NARTO, Mr Aloga Ogbogbo, expressed the displeasure of the union on the activities of miscreants at the ports.

He commended the Lagos State Government on the roles played in drastically reducing the spate of extortion at the ports. (www.nanews.ng)
