I wonder why everyone wants to work at the ports, what is really there? – Bawumia asks

Meeting a cross section of stakeholders of Ghana’s ports, the vice president lamented how government continues to be concerned about the inefficiency at the ports, a development he attributes to man-made bottlenecks and corruption. Recounting his experience with some public servants, the vice president revealed how many of them continue to beg government for a chance to work at the ports.

“I ask them what they want to do and they tell me they want to work at the ports. Even some immigration officers want transfers to the ports. I think we need to find out what exactly is at the ports,” the vice president stated. A chunk of Ghana’s exports and imports are documented to be dependent on sea ports.

But the delays in the clearance of goods at these ports continue to remain a headache for most investors. The vice president says government will exploring ways to reduce man-made bottlenecks at the ports to improve revenue generation. According to him, government would need to have a clear understanding of the outstanding challenges at the ports before coming up with financial interventions.

The ports conference forms part of government’s national policy summit aimed at engaging stakeholders on the best ways to positioning themselves for efficiency and productivity.
