Chevron also have avoided all meetings by Federal Ministry of Transportation & National Stevedore association to resolve this matter. She advised that it will be in their best interest to grant Bena – Franco access to the jetty.

“You have the next two (2) week to register this stevedore that has been assigned to you by the Federal Government of Nigeria to oversee what goes on at that jetty” Ajani emphasised.

In addition, the inability of representatives of Chevron Nigeria Limited to substantiate on the status of operating license for the jetty, the Permanent Secretary mandated the taskforce on private jetties to avail her evidence of approval granted to the company immediately.

Furthermore, she noted that failure to comply within the next two weeks will leave the Ministry with no option than to shut operations at the Warri jetty.
