The Federal Roads Committee on Surveillance and Action against Road Abuse (FERCSARA) has fashioned out operational modalities to address the prevailing traffic challenges caused by the movement of container truck and petroleum tanker drivers in and out of Apapa port.
The operational guidelines were listed in a statement signed by the committee’s Special Taskforce Chairman, Austin Kelly, which according to him, was a result of the committee’s due consultation with relevant stakeholders.
