Invest In Mutual Funds Like A Hero

The Minister of Transport, Rotimi Amaechi, on Monday directed the management of Nigerian Ports Authority, NPA, to work towards achieving 48 hours cargo clearance .

Amaechi gave this directive when he visited the headquarters of the agency in Lagos.

The Minister stated that he had promised President Muhammadu Buhari that he would ensure Nigerian ports achieved 48 hours cargo clearance target.

He said, “Other countries operating maritime industry are achieving 48 hours cargo clearance, so Nigeria is not an exemption.

“I believe in transparency and hard work. We should endeavour to do what people are expecting us to do.

“I will inform the public about the activities of the maritime industry to make sure you do what people will like to know,’’ the minister said.

Also speaking, the Managing Director of NPA, Malam Habib Abdullahi, said the agency had made great strides in its efforts in managing the affairs of the Nigerian ports in the last three years.

“When we take you round the ports, you will be able to see the developments at Lagos ports. We have two of the ports in Lagos while the remaining four are outside Lagos.

“NPA is one of the oldest parastatals in the country and is still maintaining its status and statutory obligations as directed by the Federal Government,’’ Abdullahi said.
