The whole Ports in Lagos State may shut down as tanker drivers are refusing to move at night after Lagos State government announced over a week ago that heavy vehicles can now only move at night because of traffic jams and accident.
Tanker drivers are saying they cannot move at night because of lack of security on the road at night. This gridlock has resulted to containers not being evacuated from the ports to their destinations. All the ports are so filled now that port workers would have to close the port if there is no compromise between the Lagos State government and the tanker drivers.
