The Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI) has identified poor infrastructure as responsible for the high cost of doing business at Nigeria’s ports.
This was the position of the LCCI President Babatunde Ruwase on Thursday in Lagos State at a seminar.
According to Ruwase who was represented by the Vice President of the LCCI Varkey Verghese, bureaucracy and illegal charges are some of the challenges faced with doing businesses in Nigeria’s ports.
He added that the development would stall the federal government’s drive of growing the nation’s non-oil sector.
“I wish to challenge us to give our support to the programme to foster a better business environment in Nigeria,” the LCCI boss added.
“The chamber will remain committed to the cause of ease of doing business, particularly in Nigerian ports.”
