NAGAFF Chairman tasks FG, LASG, Apapa LGA on  plastic waste removal
The Chairman, National Association of Government Approved Freight Forwarders, NAGAFF, Tincan Island chapter, Forwarder Emeka Paul Chiedozie has appealed to the Federal, Lagos State and Apapa Local Governments to urgently tackle the indiscriminate dropping of plastic waste along the Tincan Island access road.

 While speaking to newsmen today at TinCan, Lagos,Chiedozie lamented that the amount of plastic waste and human feaces along TinCan Island access road and inside drainages is worrisome as it affects the stakeholders'  health.

He stated that, "The air pollution is so bad that it can cause an epidemic. Most of the drainages are already blocked, stakeholders have not even started enjoying the road but waste has taken over some portions of the road. There is no maintenance on the road.

"I have advised NAGAFF TinCan members and elders not to come to the port any day it rains heavily if they don't have much business within the port premises to do because the aftermath of the rain causes serious air pollution, most drainages that are blocked with plastic waste makes the road flooded.
"This road was reconstructed with tax payers' money to the tune of over N72 billion and if it is not maintained, stakeholders will also face the consequences. The road was reconstructed during the regime of former President Muhammadu Buhari."

Earlier on, Chiedozie commended the elders of the association in the chapter for their dedication and support so far since he assumed office as Chairman NAGAFF TinCan saying that "although the economy is very hash, be confident the Chapter will continue to render its assistant to you as usual.

"l sincerely appreciate your prompt response despite the short notice given for this meeting. By God's grace, l will not disappoint you, letus continue to facilitate trade."
