Maritime Stakeholders Task FG On Logistics

Experts in logistics and  maritime business, have urged the Federal government to take the issues of logistics in its agenda to grow the economy very seriously.

This was disclosed by  Director-General, Africa Centre for Supply Chain (ACSC), Obiora Madu and the Chairman Board of Trustees, Association of Nigerian Licensed Customs Agents (ALNCA), Henry Njoku,  at the third Fellowship Investiture and Induction Ceremony  of ACSC, in Port Harcourt the Rivers State capital,

He explained that the decay in logistics infrastructure is part of the reasons for the dwindling fortunes of the national economy, citing Onne/ Eleme and Lagos Port roads as case studies.

“Logistics is crucial in economic growth. Part of the reason the economy is not doing well is because of the decay in our logistics infrastructure. It is disheartening the way the Onne road road it. I am sure it will not cost the Federal Government so much to fix. When we talk about poor logistics in Nigeria this include lack of good road network, absence of warehouses among others,” Madu said.

The DG urged the Federal Government  to adopt a holistic logistics policy instead of transportation policy which is presently being practised, stressing that logistics and transportation are not the same.
