"Over 70 per cent of national trade goes through the port, which makes it a place of immense national relevance. Please contact the appropriate authorities, in order to put out the right information,Ě he stressed.
Mr Adorkor gave the advice when he interacted with journalists in Tema.
He said contracts have been awarded for the putting up of new security buildings as part of the automation of port activities.
Mr Adorkor said all container and truck movement would be monitored by camera.
He said building of dock terminals is underway, to ease congestion at the port.
"All those contracts have been given out and are being executed."
Mr Adorkor said plans are afoot to expand the port.
He said whilst the port expansion project "has been on the drawing board for some time now, it was in 2010 that the GPHA administration started to act upon the idea".
The Port Director said sea land would be re-claimed for the expansion project, whilst a road would be constructed to link Tema Community Three and the motor way.
Touching on the issue of over-crowding at the port by trucks, Mr Adorkor said sites are being created for the vehicles to reverse the anomaly.
"We would ensure by electronic means, that only trucks that are due to enter the port, do so. If it is not your turn, you stay out, and this would ensure that the port is not over-crowded.Ě
Mr Paul Asare Ansah, Marketing and Public Affairs Manager of GPHA, said the port can handle an average of 840,000 containers at a time, and this number is estimated to expand to 3,000,000 in 2028.
He said this makes the expansion project most crucial.
Mr. Ansah said considering the rapid growth of economic activities in the country, "we are seriously looking at the putting up of a third port."
He expressed the hope that ECOWAS regulations on port management such as the Axle Load Policy, would be harmonised.
"This policy sets a limit to how much cargo a truck could take out of the port. If it is not harmonised within ECOWAS states, a lot more trucks would operate in places where they could flout the rules for better profit, and this would badly affect member countries who enforce the regulation."
Mr Vandi Chidi Minah, Minister for Transport and Aviation, Sierra Leone, was present at the meeting.
He said challenges at GPHA, are common to other ports within the sub-region.
"We look to Ghana as a collaborative partner," he said, adding that there are a lot to learn from the country's rich experience in port management.
Mr Minah urged countries within the sub-region to comply with ECOWAS provisions, adding that such cooperation, would promote and enhance collaboration amongst the states.
In accordance with ECOWAS regulations, vehicles are allowed a maximum height of four metres above the road surface while axle load of 11.5 tonnes is allowed per single axle with weight varying from 51 tonnes for a maximum for six axle trucks.
Axle load is the maximum weight a vehicle could take in relation to its wheels.GNA
