House of Representatives Extols NPA’s Commitment to Revenue Generation

The House of Representatives Committee on Ports and Harbours has commended the Mohammed Bello Koko-led Management and staff of the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) for its commitment towards revenue generation for the nation’s economy.

Speaking during a press conference to conclude a 3-day oversight visit of the Committee to the NPA, the Chairman of the Committee, Nnolim Nnaji, said the authority has been delivering exceptional results despite impediments outside of its control. 

“The Management and staff have done very well in the area of unprecedented revenue generation and remittance to the Consolidated Revenue Fund (CRF) of the federation and in the area of infrastructure and equipment renewal,” he said.

The Chairman observed the level of decay at the nation’s ports, stating the urgent need to reconstruct the Tin Can Island and comprehensively rehabilitate Apapa, Rivers, Warri, Onne and Calabar Port Complexes respectively.

Responding, the Managing Director, NPA, Mohammed Bello-Koko, expressed delight in the visit of the Committee, saying that visits such as this would spur the Authority to achieve even more in terms of service delivery.

He however, called on the Committee to increase its level of support to the Authority in its bid to achieve its mandate of developing, owning and operating ports and harbours.
