70% of Nigerian seaports comatose — PCC

By Godwin Oritse & Providence Adeyinka

THE Port Consultative Council of Nigeria, PCCN, has said that 70 percent of the nation’s seaports are comatose following the lack of competence exhibited by successive government over time.

Speaking to Vanguard during a presentation of books and other academic materials to the management of the University of Lagos, Chairman of the Council, Otunba Kunle Folarin, said that Nigeria has 17 ports but as at today only six of them are functioning.

Folarin also said that the inland nature of some of the 11 non-functioning ports also contributed to their demise adding that these were the ports that fed Nigeria before oil was discovered.
