NPA Expresses Commitment To Budget Implementation

By Aisha Cole
Lagos –    The Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) is working toward efficient budgetary implementation in all ramifications.

The Managing Director of NPA, Ms Hadiza Usman, said this in a message to members of the House of Representatives Committee on Ports, Harbours and Waterways, who visited the headquarters of the agency in Lagos.

Usman, who was represented by the Executive Director, Finance and Administration, Alhaji Mohammed Bello-Koko sought the support of the legislators in rehabilitating dilapidated infrastructure and procurement of equipment at the nation’s seaports.

The managing director said NPA would pay attention to training its staff in line with best practices, particularly concerning certification, for them to operate seamlessly and efficiently.

The Committee Chairman, Rep. Patrick Asadu, advised the management of NPA to  keep on modernising the ports industry.

Asadu said the management of NPA should prioritise critical areas of concern in its budget implementation, while other sections would be attended to accordingly.

He said government would not compromise on improved operational efficiency.

The legislator told the NPA management to work toward greater revenue generation as the economic situation of the country required creative administrative management expertise.

Asadu said this would enable the living standard of Nigerians to appreciate once again.

“We are generally impressed by the performance of the management of NPA.

“If there are other areas we want them to improve on, when they come for Budget Defence, these areas would be highlighted.

“NPA is a very important organisation and quite strategic to the realisation of stronger economic growth in Nigeria,’’ the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) quotes  NPA as saying.

He, therefore, told the management to improve its savings especially in the face of the current realities in the country.
