The Nigeria Export Processing Zones Authority (NEPZA) says it is exploring multiple partnerships with the Nigerian Shippers Council (NSC) to significantly raise the Federal Government’s non-oil sector deliverables for the citizens.
Managing Director of NEPZA, Adesoji Adesugba, said in a congratulatory message to the newly-appointed Executive Secretary of the NSC, Emmanuel Jime, that the NSC was a critical sub-sector of the national economy, particularly with the coming into effect of the African Continental Free Trade Agreement.
“As your agency also regulates dry port operations in Nigeria, we have unique opportunities to collaborate and work together for the development of the value chains in the economy and bridge economic infrastructural deficit facing the nation,’’ Adesugba said.
The NEPZA managing director, therefore, said exploring a variety of partnership channels around the non-oil sector would help to significantly scale up the Federal Government’s deliverables for the citizens.
President Muhammadu Buhari approved Jime’s appointment as executive secretary of the council on June 25, 2021. (NAN)
