Mr Mohammed Bello-Koko, Managing Director, Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA), said the Authority would apply international standards and best practices in handling ships and cargoes at the country’s seaports.
He said this in a statement on Tuesday in Lagos signed by Mr Olaseni Alakija, General Manager, Corporate & Strategic Communications, NPA.
Bello-Koko made the remark while addressing members of the Senate Committee on Privatisation and Commercialisation led by Senator Theodore Orji, on a oversight visit to the NPA.
According to Bello-Koko, the Authority has created an enabling environment for a well-structured inter-modal system for seamless connectivity of the waterways, rail and road transportation.
This, he said, would foster improved service delivery as well as increase the country’s revenue.
He noted that the various reforms introduced by the Federal Government had a positive impact on productivity at the ports.
