Some workers of bonded terminals, who were relieved of their duties, said on Wednesday that low transfer of cargoes was responsible for their sack.
They claimed that some bonded terminals had been without cargoes for two years.
The workers who spoke in Lagos decried the inability of some port concessionaires to fulfill government’s policy on transfer of cargoes to bonded terminals in order to decongest the ports.
Some of them were staff of Aulic, Sapid Agencies, Clarion and Advanced Motor Logistics (AML).
They said that the inability of the management to get cargoes allotted to the bonded terminals led to the termination of appointment of 16 staff in December,urging the Federal Government to give a directive that cargoes should be brought to bonded terminals to avoid continuous retrenchment of workers.
