According to a memo from the Command’s Public Relations Officer’s desk, addressed to terminal operators, clearing Agents and other stakeholders,the statement titled ” Operationisation of Work Hours” reads:

” The CAC has directed that all DC terminals, Releasing Officers, Heads of Units and their respective officers extend all operations till 2000Hours today 3rd May 2024 in order to address the concern arising from downtown experienced in the ports and to cover lost time.

” In line with this directive stakeholders within the port corridors are hereby informed that officers will also be at their duty posts by 0800Hours on Saturday 4th May, 2024″, the statement said.
