NPA will pro­vide world-class ser­vices — Hadiza Bala Us­man

Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Eu­gene Agha, Lagos

The newly ap­pointed Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor of the Nige­rian Ports Au­thor­ity (NPA), Hadiza Bala Us­man yes­ter­day said the NPA un­der her would pro­vide world-class ser­vices to ter­mi­nal op­er­a­tors.

She made the vow while tak­ing over from Malam Habib Ab­dul­lahi at the NPA cor­po­rate head­quar­ters in Lagos.

The new MD said ev­ery staff must strive to en­hance op­er­at­ing ef­fi­cien­cies to fa­cil­i­tate im­proved rev­enue gen­er­a­tion.

She said that as a team leader, she had come to add her best to that of other staff of the au­thor­ity, adding, “We will lis­ten to our cus­tomers, im­porters, ex­porters and other agen­cies work­ing in the ports to im­prove on our ser­vice de­liv­ery to the na­tion. Any­thing less than world-class ser­vices is sim­ply not ac­cept­able. We must work as a team, pur­su­ing com­mon goals with pro­fes­sion­al­ism and dili­gence. We shall pri­or­i­tize in­vest­ment in pri­mary equip­ment and in­fra­struc­ture and ser­vices com­mit­ted to by NPA in the con­ces­sion agree­ments to has­ten clear­ance of goods.

“As we col­lab­o­rate in the best tra­di­tions of pub­lic ser­vice, I be­lieve that with com­mit­ment and dili­gence our hard work can po­si­tion NPA as a model agency. Let us all up­hold the most dili­gent work ethics in our in­di­vid­ual beats as well as in the col­lec­tive un­der­tak­ings re­quired to achieve re­sults. We will work hard, with in­tegrity and with zero-tol­er­ance for cor­rup­tion.”

She com­mended Ab­dul­lahi for steer­ing the NPA ship.

In his speech, Ab­dul­lahi said the NPA man­age­ment un­der him recorded mod­est achieve­ments since com­ing on board July 2012.
