US-based Nigerian, Chinedu cries out over seasonal goods trapped in Oshodi-Apapa road
A US-based Nigerian man, Chinedu Ojiji has cried out over the deplorable situation of Oshodi/Apapa road affecting seasonal goods meant to sell out before Christmas celebration.
Chinedu, who also working as security personnel lamented despite the bureaucratic bottlenecks encountered during clearance the vessel could only progress 500 meters from the Lagos Port to a 25km offloading point a week later.
He said, according to feedback from his agents on the ground, the delay was caused by the deplorable conditions of the Oshodi-Apapa expressway including massive congestion within Tincan Island-Apapa port
He blamed the government over the ugly experience adding that people of the Southeast are intentionally punished due to the shut sea ports within the region.
Chinedu revealed that 60% of the content of the seasonal goods are expected to be offloaded in the East and sold before the festive season ends.
He further expressed worries over continued huddles divers could meet on the way majorly over 30 police checkpoints where extra fees would be paid illegally despite government charges paid to Port Authorities.
He, however, advised well to do Igbos to unite in quest for Biafra plight or stand to be oppressed systematically in Nigeria amid their legitimate hustle to survive. See post
