Apapa: Electronic Call-up System up for a Review

Adegboyega Oyetola, minister of Marine and Blue Economy, has set up a committee to review the E-call-up system and develop measures to ensure the current abuse of the system becomes a thing of the past.

Ismail Omipidan, the minister’s spokesman, disclosed this on Wednesday and said the idea was part of efforts to reduce the Apapa gridlock and strengthen the electronic call-up system.

He said the committee will review the Standard Operating Procedures for Truck Traffic Management along the Lagos port corridor.

Omipidan Ismail said the committee was expected to meet with other critical stakeholders in Lagos on Thursday for the review.

He said the minister urged the committee to do everything possible to put an end to the abuse of the system by humans and provide solutions to ensure that it is abuse-free.

Although the electronic call-up system was introduced by the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) in February 2021 for trucks at the Lagos Ports, which truckers are expected to use to book turns to enter the ports, there have been compromises in the functionality of the system.

“I have several suggestions on how I believe the system can be strengthened. But I want input from the stakeholders. This is why I have set up this committee to interface with the service provider and other industry stakeholders to devise the best way of dealing decisively with the saboteurs,” the minister said.
