The Executive Secretary and Chief Executive Officer of the Nigerian Shippers’ Council (NSC), Mr. Hassan Bello has expressed the agency’s readiness to work with the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) to accelerate the removal of overtime containers presently causing congestion at the nation’s seaports.
This is in furtherance of its regulatory role as the nation’s Port Economic Regulator.
Bello made the declaration when he led the NSC’s Enforcement team on a working visit to APM Terminal Limited, in Lagos, recently.
According to Bello, “NSC had earlier collaborated with the Power Holding Company Nigeria Limited (PHCN) to aid the removal of power cables from the ports, so we are ready to partner with the Customs to accelerate the removal of containers presently causing congestion at the nation’s seaports.
The Manager, Stakeholders’ Services of APM Terminals, Mr Odibe Daniel expressed delight that NSC is joining other stakeholders to address congestion issues at the nation’s ports. He affirmed the organisation’s determination to improve on its operations for the benefit of the users of port services.
