Nigeria: Govt Summons Striking Truck Drivers to Halt Economic Losses

In a bid to end the industrial action by truckers in Apapa that has paralysed activities at the nation’s premier port in Lagos, the federal government has summoned the leadership of the Association of Maritime Truck Owners (AMATO) to Abuja.

President of AMATO, Remi Ogungbemi told THISDAY yesterday that he is in Abuja following the summon of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Boss Mustapha.

According to him, “I cannot talk on the strike action embarked upon by my members at the ports for now because I am already in Abuja to see the SGF, on the issue. Hopefully, the problem will be resolved with his intervention.”
