The current management of the Nigerian Shippers Council (NSC) will complete the Inland Dry Ports (IDPs), Vehicle Transit Areas (VTAs), Border Information Centres (BICs) and other projects inherited from the immediate past head of the establishment, Hassan Bello, the Executive Secretary/Chief Executive Officer, Emmanuel Jime, has said.
In his report on the NSC activities from 2019 to 2020 during the recently concluded Federal Ministry of Transportation 2020 Ministerial Retreat in Lagos, Jime noted that as Nigeria’s Port Economic Regulator, the NSC has ensured effective regulation at the ports.
He commended the retreat, stating that the initiative provided a unique opportunity for the maritime agencies and top officials of the ministry to cross-fertilise ideas on projects that would elevate the nation’s maritime sector, while assuring that the NSC would not relent in ensuring seamless transactions at the ports.
