The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has turned its searchlight on the Nigerian Ports with the commencement of undercover operations at the nation’s ports starting from Monday.

The Executive Chairman of EFCC, Mr Ibrahim Lamorde made this known in Abuja during a meeting with the Special Adviser to the President on Performance Monitoring and Evaluation, Professor Sylvester Monye.

Mr Lamorde noted that the anti-graft agency will work in line with the reformation of Nigerian ports to see that unnecessary bottlenecks are removed.

Professor Monye, who was at the EFCC office to solicit support for ports reformation, blamed some government agencies for deliberately mounting obstacles, creating bottlenecks and exploiting genuine importers.

He assured that the ports reform committee will apply itself to building up the ports into institutions with the right structures for better productivity.
