The Port of Lagos is located in Apapa and is the main inlet of goods and raw materials into Nigeria. The addition of Tank Farms here has made the traffic situation much more severe than ever before.
A large chunk of companies are either moving their headquarters out of Apapa or re-strategising into new business ventures.
Petrochemicals, in the form of petroleum, natural gas, diesel and even bitumen have different depots scattered around Apapa and its environs. This is the reality of the later category.
While on the other hand, the manufacturers, fish importers are having a hard time doing business, mostly due to the traffic congestion.
Another interesting fact is the code of silence. No body wants to speak about their experience and be quoted. They only talk on the condition of anonymity.
Why? The fear of backlash someone mentioned in one of the affected firms.
