The acting Managing Director of the Nigerian Aviation Handling Company Plc (nahco aviance), Mrs. Folashade Ode, has urged the staff members to be dedicated to their duties.
Ode, who spoke while on a visit to some units within the company, told members of staff that it is important for them to be very vigilant.
She said the company appreciates the efforts they put into their work and advised them not to rest on their oars.
Ode who was named MD/CEO in an acting capacity in a notice to the Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE) on August 7, 2017, told staff at the Export Warehouse of the Company that they should at all times adhere strictly to the guidelines governing the exportation of cargoes through the warehouse.
She reminded staff that they should always educate and update themselves on prohibited items on the export list so as to guide against taking them from shippers.
These items, as published on the website of NCS include, maize, timber (rough or sawn), raw hides and skin (including Wet Blue and all unfinished leather) H.S. Codes 4101.2000.00 – 4108.9200.00, scrap metals and unprocessed rubber latex and rubber lumps.
Others are artifacts and antiquities and wildlife animals classified as endangered species and their products e.g. crocodile; elephant, lizard, eagle, monkey, zebra, lion etc. and all goods imported.
Ode emphasised to the staff on the need to watch out especially for donkey skin which is prominent on the list of prohibited items and which had been the source of concerns between shippers and Customs.
â€œNAHCO has never and will never accept to export any item on the list of prohibited items including donkey skin. You should always be on your guard.â€ She said.
