BREAKING : Maritime Workers To Begin Three-Day Warning Strike On Monday

Maritime Workers Union of Nigeria (MWUN) has announced that it would be embarking on a three-day warning strike from Monday, to protest the deplorable state of access roads to seaports in Lagos State.

The union made this known in a communiqué Saturday in Lagos State that the situation was no longer tolerable.

It was signed by the President-General of the union, Mr Adewale Adeyanju, and the Secretary-General, Mr Felix Akingboye.

According to the communique, the union had at various occasions drawn the attention of the relevant authorities to the bad roads.

It said that the poor state of the access roads had made articulated vehicles to block them, putting other road users through pains of losing man-hours and facing risks of accidents.

The communique added;

The NEC in-session wishes to draw the attention of the Federal Government once again to the deplorable state of the access roads to the Lagos seaports and the dangers this poses to lives and property.

To avoid unnecessary deaths as well as the loss of man-hour on the failed roads, the NEC in-session hereby calls on the Federal Government and the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) to urgently fix the access roads and make them motorable

MUWN noted;

From Second Rainbow to the ports, in the last three weeks, it takes not less than five to seven hours to access the ports depending on when you get trapped.

When you are leaving the ports, you even spend more hours from the ports to the same Second Rainbow.

A lot of innocent lives have been lost, many have been maimed by hoodlums who rob and dispose victims of their belongings.

The union said that response from the government would determine its next line of action after the warning strike.

It added;

Many of our workers do not get home until midnight or even much later. The same thing happens to other users of Apapa-Oshodi Expressway. Many businesses have relocated out of Apapa and its environs to neighbouring countries because of the failed access roads. The implications are huge for the Nigerian economy and employment creation. It has not only affected businesses but also revenues of government.
