In a bid to ease the exportation of Yam and other agricultural produce in the country, the technical Committee on Nigeria’s Yam Export Programme says it is ready to possess the Ikorodu terminal.
Chairman of the committee, Prof. Simon Irtwange who disclosed this saying this would be done in the first quarter of the year.
According to him, the terminal has been officially designed for the primary export of yam and other agricultural produce instead of the Apapa ports.
Irtwange stressed that this move would put an end produce getting spoil while on its way to the port.
In his words, “This is one of the high points of achievements recorded by the Committee in 2018.”
“At least, it will go a long way in helping the vehicles to avoid the Apapa gridlocks, save the time the produce gets to the ships and reduce the number of wastages through spoilage.”
He further revealed that the committee had started to look into airlines to see how compartments could be used for yam export, adding that the committee will put in all efforts to ensure exportation of yam on a permanent basis.
