The Nigerian Ports Authority has announced that effective, Wednesday, November 25, 2020, the Authority will sanction Bonded Terminals engaged in container stripping.
The Authority has been inundated with complaints from the custom agents about these unacceptable actions, which contribute to the traffic gridlock along the Tin Can Port corridor.
Resumption of stripping activities would only be reconsidered after the port access road has been cleared of all impediments.
Violation of the directive by the operators would result in the closure of the terminals, which were not originally licensed to do stripping but operate as bonded terminals.
Bonded terminals found to engage in any unwholesome practice have been notified to desist forthwith.
