Stakeholders Set Brainstorm On Dikapidated Statw Of Tin Can Port Quay Apron
Maritime Stakeholder have concluded plans to hold a brainstorming session
over the dilapidated and collapsing quay apron at Tin Can Island Port of Lagos, as well as the need for the rehabilitation of other ports around the country.

The brainstorming session, organized by Maritime Reporters Association of Nigeria (MARAN) with theme: “Rehabilitation Of Tin-Can Island Port And Proffering Workable Solutions”, is expected to hold on July 6, 2023 at Rockview Hotel, Apapa, Lagos.

According to a statement signed by president of MARAN, Mr Godfrey Bivbere the event would also be used to inaugurate the newly elected officials of the association into office.

He noted that the association is worried that the collapsed quay apron of the port is already leading to vessels avoiding the Tin Can Port and this would lead to loss of revenue for the federal government.

Various stakeholders that are expected to converge at this meeting include; The Permanent Secretary, Federal Ministry of Transportation, Mrs Magdalene Ajani, The Managing Director of Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA); Mohammed Bello-Koko, The Executive Secretary of Nigerian Shippers’ Council; Hon Emmanuel Jime, various commands of the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS); Shipping Companies and Terminal Operators.

Others are; the Maritime Workers Union of Nigeria (MWUN); Barge Operators Association of Nigeria; Association of Nigerian Licensed Customs Agents (ANLCA), National Association of Government Approved Freight Forwarders (NAGAFF), National Council of Managing Directors of Licensed Customs Agents (NCMDLCA), maritime truck owners among others.
