Nigeria Port Authority Foils Syndicate Undermining Electronic Call-Up System at MPS Pre-Gate

Nigerian Ports Authority’s (NPA) electronic truck traffic management system officials alongside security agents conducted a surprise inspection at the MPS Pre-Gate.

This operation led to a startling revelation: the confiscation of 249 counterfeit vehicle plate numbers and 149 Minimum Safety Standard (MSS) stickers, this was made known in a post on their official X(formerly Twitter).

Further scrutiny of the terminal uncovered an additional 164 vehicle number plates and 133 MSS stickers, purposefully unattached to any trucks, suggesting premeditated plans for proxy booking.

Promptly seized, the fake items were swiftly removed, and the Terminal Manager was summoned for interrogation. 

The post noted that these findings show the NPA’s staunch stance against calculated and well-coordinated attempts to undermine the electronic call-up system, initially established by the Authority to eliminate human intervention in port traffic management.

This initiative aimed to alleviate the persistent traffic congestion negatively impacting the national economy.

Despite these challenges, the Nigerian Ports Authority says it remains committed to fortifying the e-call-up project and other automation initiatives.

This commitment, they noted, is geared towards propelling the maritime sector to its fullest potential and sustaining the growth of the nation’s economy.
