Firm canvasses full automation of port operations

Mr Jide Taiwo, Managing Director of Ocean and Cargo Limited, has called for the complete automation of activities in Nigerian ports.Information Guide Nigeria

Taiwo told The PUNCH in an exclusive interview on Monday in Lagos that full automation of port activities would create more jobs. He stated that people would work from different regions of the country rather than travelling to the ports, and that the perpetual traffic gridlock on the port access route was a significant economic disadvantage.

“I would also commend the MD of NPA, Muhammed Bello-Koko. He is doing fantastic work, but I think he should look more into 100 per cent automation of Nigeria seaport. With 100 per cent automation, we are going to create more jobs. A lot of people will work for the smooth delivery of cargoes without having to be at the ports. Some will work from different states and most of the people don’t even have to be at the ports or become staff members of NPA.

“It is the same way the Nigerian banks have to place some of their staff on contract and the jobs were given to train them and let them know what to do. Around the world, a lot people work at the seaport, but you don’t see them around moving on a daily basis. That is why I am saying that NPA needs to go fully digital. Automation of Nigerian seaport should be 100per cent.

According to him, the government was losing a lot of revenues due to the perennial traffic congestion on the port access roads.JAMB Result

“I also realise that the congestion, including the human traffic that we have on a daily basis as you approach the seaport, is of immense disadvantage to the seaport. The second point is that I realise that we have a lot of people on daily basis around that side and yet the effectiveness is very low.
