NPA Cracks Down on E-CallUp Fraud: Fake Plates and Stickers Exposed

In a major strike against sabotage, the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) has uncovered a web of fake vehicle plates and Minimum Safety Standard (MSS) stickers aimed at undermining the agency’s e-CallUp system. Officials at the MPS Pre-Gate stumbled upon 249 phony plates and 149 unauthorized MSS stickers during a routine check.

Further investigation within the terminal unearthed another 164 hidden plates and 133 loose MSS stickers, clearly intended for illegal proxy bookings. Confiscation swift, the Terminal Manager now faces questioning.

This discovery validates the NPA’s suspicions about a deliberate attempt to cripple the e-CallUp system. Launched to fight human interference and port congestion, e-CallUp streamlines truck traffic by eliminating manual interactions.

The NPA emphasizes that this attack on its digital initiative aims to hinder national economic growth by fueling the very gridlock e-CallUp seeks to tackle.

Undeterred, the NPA remains steadfast in its commitment to e-CallUp and other process automation initiatives. In their eyes, these advancements are not just about efficiency, but about unlocking the full potential of Nigeria’s maritime sector.
