The Executive Secretary of the Nigerian Shippers’ Council, NSC, Emmanuel Jime, said the present management would ensure the completion of projects started by his predecessor, Hassan Bello.
He listed projects like the Inland Dry Ports, IDPs, Vehicle Areas, VTAs, Border Information Centres, and BICs among others.
Mr Jime disclosed this in a statement signed by the Head of Public Relations, NSC, Rakiya Zubairu, on Tuesday.
The remark, according to the statement, was made at the recently concluded Federal Ministry of Transportation 2020 Ministerial Retreat held in Lagos.
The NSC boss, who presented the report of the activities of the council from 2019 to 2020, said it had ensured effective regulation at the nation’s ports.
“I commend the Federal Ministry of Transportation for the retreat which provided a unique opportunity for the maritime agencies and top officials of the Ministry of Transportation to cross-fertilize ideas on projects.
“This cross fertilisation of project ideas will be for the elevation of the maritime sector in Nigeria,” he said.
He assured that NSC would not relent in its effort at ensuring seamless transactions at the ports.
Other agencies present at the retreat were the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency, NIMASA, Nigerian Ports Authority, NPA, and top officials of the Federal Ministry of Transportation.
