The Coordinator General, Port Standing Task Team (PSTT), Mr. Moses Fadipe, has highlighted the importance and need for the team to work in collaboration with the Nigerian Association of Road Transport Owners (NARTO) and Maritime Workers’ Union of Nigerian (MWUN), in order to keep the ports corridors free.

Moses Fadipe said this during a meeting held at the Nigerian Shippers’ council headquarters in Lagos.

NARTO President, Yusuf Lawal, said there is need for collaboration amongst all agencies working in the ports.

He further stated that the transport sector of the maritime industry was currently going through a tough time.
