Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain in Delta State, Chief Sunny Onuesoke has advised the Federal Government to open up other sea ports in  the South-East  and South-South regions of the country, saying that was the only solution to the perennial   gridlock at  Apapa/Tin-Can Wharf road.

Onuesoke who said he was trapped in traffic for over four hours while going to Apapa Wharf to transact business, told Journalists in Lagos that, apart from the traffic jam, the heap of refuse along the axis was  beginning to take over the expressway at different spots.

He also observed that  the indiscriminate dumping of faeces and  the refuse were pushed into the gutters, without recourse to the implications on residents , especially as the rainy season approaches.

Lamenting the state of the dilapidated roads that lead to  the two seaports, the PDP chieftain wondered why roads leading to the only Nigerian operating ports that generate  about fifty percent of the nation’s revenue, should be abandoned to such extent    that it was difficult for trucks conveying cargoes to assess.

He argued that Nigeria was losing valuable hours and millions of Naira daily as a result of traffic gridlock on the road, adding that the situation portends grave danger for the Nigerian economy, as it would trigger inflation and further discourage importers from choosing Nigeria as  port of destination.
