Sunday Trust - - NEWS - By An­thony Ma­liki

Ster­ling Bank Plc, has ex­pressed its de­sire to part­ner the Char­tered In­sti­tute of Lo­gis­tics and Trans­port (CILT) to pos­i­tively in­flu­ence devel­op­ment in Nige­ria’s trans­porta­tion sec­tor.

Group Head, Strat­egy & In­no­va­tion of the bank, Mr. Shina Atilola, stated this while ad­dress­ing ex­ec­u­tive mem­bers of the In­sti­tute who paid a cour­tesy visit to the cor­po­rate head­quar­ters in Lagos re­cently.

He said the trans­porta­tion sec­tor is a ma­jor con­trib­u­tor to the econ­omy and that “with­out ef­fec­tive trans­porta­tion, busi­nesses will not at­tain their true po­ten­tials be­cause they will be de­nied the op­por­tu­nity to con­nect with sup­ply chain part­ners and cus­tomers.”

Ac­cord­ing to him, the part­ner­ship with the in­sti­tute will en­sure pro­vi­sion of ef­fec­tive sup­port to the pro­fes­sion and in­dus­try in line with pioneer­ing works in the sec­tor. On her part, Chief Hu­man Re­source Of­fi­cer of the bank, Mrs. Temi Dal­ley, com­mended the in­sti­tute for its ro­bust cur­ricu­lum which ad­vances the devel­op­ment and im­prove­ment of the lo­cal lo­gis­tics, trans­port and sup­ply chain sub-sec­tors.

The act­ing Na­tional Ex­ec­u­tive Direc­tor of the in­sti­tute, Mr Paul Ndibe, said the or­ga­ni­za­tion started in 1919 in the United King­dom, be­came op­er­a­tional in Nige­ria in 1958 and has been con­tribut­ing in var­i­ous ways to the devel­op­ment of lo­gis­tics and trans­porta­tion sec­tor of the Nige­rian econ­omy.
