The Electronic truck call-up system, operated by the Truck Transit Park, TTP, is not working for the Oshodi, Mile2 inward Tin-can Island Port, trucker plying the route have said

Speaking with the press on the issue, the National president of the Council of Maritime Truck Unions and Associations, COMTUA, Adeyinka Aroyewun, said the government lacks the political will and responsibility to address the problem facing the haulage industry, National Daily Newspaper gathered.

He said he had warned earlier that the introduction of the Truck call-up system would not work because of the absence of the relevant infrastructure and adequate planning.

Aroyewun said his warnings then fell on deaf ears, noting that the consequences are long queues and trucks parking along the port access.

He described the call-up system as a fraud, saying: “You see the government lacks the political will to tackle the gridlock.

The problem from time is not the electronic truck call-up system, it is congestion inside the port.
