ABSTRACT

This study assessed the impact of the port concession adopted in Nigerian ports in 2006. The study is necessary in order to ascertain the impact of the model based on a painstaking study. Data was collected from the abstract of ports statistics on three major variables namely, cargo throughput, average berth occupancy and average turnaround time, from 1995 to 2012. The data was analysed using Mann- Whitney Wilcoxon (WWW) Test. The result shows that on the average, all the indices (the cargo throughput, the average berth occupancy and the average turnaround time) improved from 28571417 tonnes to 67240231.82 tonnes, 51.35% to 72.47% and 8.18 days to 4.83 days respectively, for the pre-concession and post concession periods. It was also found that the concession of the ports has significantly improved the cargo throughput, the average berth occupancy and the average turnaround time of Nigerian seaports at 0.05 level of significance. The study emphasises the need for formulating and implementing effective policies tailored towards port improvement and providing enabling environment for the optimal performance of the concession model.

Keywords: Analysis, Concession, Port concession, Port operations, Nigerian Seaports and Transportation.
