There is no single answer for bringing the transport sector up to speed to meet the needs of the economy and population, and any approach to overhauling it must be comprehensive. The government, through its National Transport Policy (NTP), recognises that lifting barriers to private enterprise is a vital element of any comprehensive plan for the sector. The NTP calls for initiatives to modernise roads, bridges, rails, ports, urban transport and other areas vital to commercial activity. Where the government has chosen not to undertake transport projects, it has entered into public-private partnerships (PPPs). For instance, the completion of a port at Lekki, in Lagos State, in 2015 is expected to take some pressure off Lagos Port Complex and Tin Can Island Port. This chapter contains an interview with Martin Wittig, CEO, Roland Berger Strategy Consultants.
