Lagos - Eighty one ships, including one laden with 5 000 tonnes of palm oil, are expected at the Lagos ports between December 28 and January 15, 2013, the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) has said.

The NPA disclosed this in its Shipping Position, a daily publication, made available to newsmen on Friday in Lagos.

The document indicated that MV MSK BELFAST, carrying the palm oil, would berth at the Apapa Bulk Terminal on Saturday, December 29.

It said that 13 of the expected ships would arrive with petroleum products, while 10 would sail in with new and fairly used vehicles.
