LAGOS GOVT TO PARTNER CUSTOMS ON PORTS TURNAROUND

Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has said his administration will partner with the Nigeria Customs Service, NCS, to ensure turnaround for the ports in the state to be globally competitive and make Lagos a top destination for West African countries.
The governor, who spoke when the acting Comptroller-General of the NCS, Adewale Adeniyi, paid him a courtesy visit at the Lagos House, Marina, restated his government’s commitment to construct a new port in the Badagry axis of the state to decongest Apapa and Tincan Island Ports, and bring in more investors into the state,
He said the state government is already in touch with a contractor for the construction of the Badagry Port.
On the state’s government plan to construct Badagry Port as an additional port to the existing Apapa, Tincan Island, and Lekki ports, Sanwo-Olu said the idea is to build strategic infrastructure for citizens.
Earlier, Adeniyi, who lauded the giant strides of the Babajide Sanwo-Olu’s administration, said Lagos, as the economic nerve centre of Nigeria, generates 70 to 75 percent of custom revenue in the country.
