The Managing Director, Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA), Mallam Habib Abdullahi, on Friday said the organisation was committed to completing Lekki and Ibom deep seaports.

Abdullahi stated this an interactive session with journalists in Lagos.

The managing director, who was represented by the General Manager, Public Affairs, NPA, Mr Iheanacho Ebubeogu, said that the authority’s commitment to the two ports stemmed from present demands and developments of the nation’s economy.

According to him, the channels of those ports built in the 1970s can no longer accommodate bigger ships coming in and going out of the country.

He said that NPA had completed the rehabilitation of the rail line in Port Harcourt port so as to decongest the port and reduce traffic on the highways.

“For Tin-Can port, NPA has contacted a consultant to see whether this would be visible and viable.”

The managing director also said that the organisation would install safety features like bumps to reduce speed limits of vehicles on the 1.6 kilometre road in Apapa port, recently rehabilitated.

He said that the organisation would also improve on capacity-building to further educate journalists on its policies. (NAN)
