Reduce port charges, Shippers Association tasks incoming govt

The Shippers' Association of Lagos State has urged the incoming government to assist shippers in reducing the costs of doing business at the seaports.
The President of the Association, Mr Jonathan Nicole, made the call in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Lagos.

Mr. Nicole said that high port charges had affected the costs of doing business in the country, adding that this had encouraged diversion of cargoes to neighboring countries.
He also pledged support for the incoming government in the area of revenue generation at the ports.
