The Nigerian Institute of Shipping (NIS) has urged the newly-appointed Executive Secretary of Nigerian Shippers’ Council (NSC), Mr Emmanuel Lyambee Jime, to continue from where his predecessor, Mr Hassan Bello, stopped.
NAN reports that President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday approved the appointment of Emmanuel-Lyambee Jime as the Executive Secretary of the NSC.
He noted that Jime had distinguished himself in several public offices.
He represented Makurdi/Guma Federal Constituency from 2007 to 2015.
He was also the Speaker of Benue House of Assembly from 1992 to 1993.
“They start to push out their own policies, and this makes things to be backward.
“If someone has a laudable idea, it should be followed up and finished with, and there will be continuity and progress.
“Issues such as making the inland dry port functional, which Bello started, should be looked into.
The NIS president told NAN that Bello did a great job as Executive Secretary of NSC,
“He is a man of the people, very accommodating; he had a lot of concern for all of us in the industry.
“I pray that Jime should follow the footsteps of Bello; let him continue from where he stopped,” Onoharigho said.
“This is an industry that we have built over the years and it is still growing; so, he should make things work for everyone,” the NIS president said.
NAN reports that Jime’s appointment is for a renewable four-year tenure.
