20 ships arrive Lagos port with foodstuff, others


Twenty vessels bearing bulk wheat, frozen fish and others have arrived the Lagos Port Complex.

Data from the Nigerian Ports Authority Shipping Position indicate that the vessels arrived from ending of June through to the first week of August.

Two vessels, Dessert Challenger and Dessert Peace berthed at the ABTL Terminal on 26th and 28th of June with bulk wheat.

Similarly, Samskip Crystal and Green Egersund brought in frozen fish through GDNL terminal on July 2 and July 4.

Pertusola, Mosunmola and Ebony Ray berthed on July 2 and July 7 with butane gas, AGO and base oil.

The Federal Government had at the onset of the covid-19 locked down all sectors except the seaports, saying that it was necessary to keep trade flowing in order to access essential supplies.

The Managing Director, the NPA, Ms Hadiza Bala Usman has said with the opening of the seaports, the safety of customers and workers was of utmost important.

She has as a result been engaging stakeholders in the sector to drive home the need to abide by the Ministry of Health, the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control  and the Presidential Task Force on Covid-19 guidelines for keeping safe during this period.

Nigeria currently has about 30,249 confirmed cases of covid-19 infections with about 684 deaths.
