The Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) has named eight agencies that are allowed to operate at the ports in the country.

In a statement signed by Principal manager, Public Affairs at the authority, Ibrahim Nasiru, NPA said the directive communicated to the managing director of the agency in a memo from the ministry of transportation in 2011 instructed that “a methodology which would ensure that only relevant cargoes are inspected by NDLEA, should be worked out”.

The statement listed the Nigerian Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), Nigerian customs service (NCS); Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA); Nigeria Police; Department of State Security (DSS); Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS) and Port Health as agencies allowed at the port.

It warned that agencies not mentioned in the list above should remain outside the port.
