Lagos - Fifty ships laden with petroleum products are expected to berth at the Lagos ports between Thursday April 10 and April 30.
This is to cushion the effects of fuel scarcity, which became noticeable across the country last month.
The “Shipping Position,” a daily publication of the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA), showed that the fifty ships are expected to berth at the Lagos ports between Thursday, April 10 and April 30.
According to the publication, four of the expected vessels will arrive at the ports with petroleum products between April 10 and 17, while 14 ships are carrying other goods.
The other ships are expected to berth at the port from April 18 to 30.
Meanwhile, fuel loading is going on smoothly at the NIPCO depot, which was shut down by National Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas (NUPENG).
NUPENG shut down NIPCO’s loading activities in Apapa, Lagos, due to the leadership tussle at the Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN).
