The Council of Maritime Transport Union and Associations (COMTUA) has urged the Federal Government to speed up work on Mile 2 to Apapa Road currently under rehabilitation.
The Council condemned the delay of the reconstruction of the Mile 2-Apapa Road and the two roads leading to Apapa and Tin Can ports, which it said, are in a terrible state.
The National President of the Council, Yinka Aroyewun, who stated the position of the association in his New Year message, said efforts of the Federal Government to reconstruct Apapa-Oshodi expressway are appreciated.
He said the entire stretch from Mile 2 to Tin can port is an eyesore and has been taken over by motorcycle riders.
Aroyewun lamented that the activities of the motorcycle riders and that of area boys who attack truck drivers incessantly for extortion purpose have become a pain that members of the association no longer wish to endure.
He called on law enforcement agencies to come to the rescue of truck drivers who are always at the mercy of street urchins.
The Council’s president also pointed at the abuse of the electronic call-up of trucks into the ports.
