The Nigerian Shippers Council (NSC) said, it is collaborating with the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), NEXIM Bank and other investors to build world-class Truck Transit Park ( TTP) in Ogun State to boost the economy and generate more revenue for the government.
Speaking with reporters at the old truck park in Ogere, along Lagos/Ibadan Expressway yesterday, its Executive Secretary, Mr Hassan Bello said the NSC would also collaborate and seek the support of the Ogun State government on the proposed park in the state.
The construction of the park, Bello said, was part of federal government efforts in decongesting the ports access roads in Lagos and to facilitate quick cargo clearance.
Bello who was in Ogun for an on-the-spot assessment of the dilapidated trailer park along the express road, said the project would be driven through Public Private Partnership (PPP) to achieve the desired results.
He said: “This is just a trailer park. What we need is a TTP with hotels and hostels for accommodation purposes. The proposed park will have a chain of restaurants and of cause petrol stations.
