Deployed Scanners Not Enough At Seaports-ANLCA
Fred Omotara, Lagos
The Association of Nigerian Licensed Customs Agents (ANLCA) has said that for efficiency to return to the ports, the numbers of Scanners deployed at the ports needs to be increased.
Speaking with Kadecommunicationng in Lagos on Monday, acting President of ANLCA, Dr. Kayode Farinto explained that one scanner each for Apapa and Tin-Can cannot handle the volume of cargoes coming into these ports.
According to the ANLCA acting President, “We need more scanners at the ports, especially Apapa and Tin-Can.
“One scanner each for the two busiest ports in Nigeria is not enough. That’s why despite the introduction of Scanners, physical examination still persist at the ports.
“We need the Federal Government to deploy more scanners and even introduce Mobile Scanners to complement the effort of the already deployed Scanners.
“The scanners that have been deployed are working perfectly, but they are not enough.”
