The ECOWAS Monitoring Task Force on the implementation of ECOWAS Trade Liberalisation Scheme today met with the Nigerian Shippers Council to deliberate on the low trade in the West Africa region.
The spokesperson of the delegation, Nwagu Julius made this known when the task force paid courtesy visit to the Council in Abuja.
According to Nwagu, the task force has been going on advocacy visit to all the 15 neighbouring countries including Nigeria since 2017.
Responding, the Executive Secretary of the council, Hassan Bello said the shippers council has been statutorily empowered to ensure that condition of liberal trade is carried out, especially in Nigeria, to remove all barriers affecting trade.
He said that Nigeria has not been able to standardise the issue of infrastructure, stating that the task force was a good idea.
According to Bello, the council is canvassing for common laws on the issue of adjudication in the area of conflict resolution.
