NIGERIAN PORTS: Currency notes serve as ID cards


“The port security is okay, because now, they have systems in place; you cannot just get into the ports unless you have an identification card.”

That was the Lead Consultant of the International Maritime Organisation (IMO), Mr. Brian Cranmer, at the opening of a five-day ‘train-the-trainer’ programme on the International Ship and Port Facility Security (ISPS) Code implementation in Victoria Island, Lagos State, South-West Nigeria, on Monday, August 29, 2016.
Sidelines is, however, aware that security personnel at the gates of Nigerian ports make brisk business demanding and receiving currency notes as bribes, in lieu of tenable identify cards, for those desirous of entering the facilities.
