The Nigerian Leadership Forum, a European think tank group on Nigeria, has commended the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari for appointing one of its members to serve onthe Board of Nigeria Ports Authority (NPA).
The NPA is a major arm of business and commerce in Nigeria, especially as the country seeks for other means of revenue to enhance the national economy.
Speaking on behalf of the forum at a recent media interaction, Alistair Soyode said that the appointment of such a highly skilled, experienced Diaspora entrepreneur and philanthropist shows that the Presidency is taking account of successful Nigerians in the Diaspora and willing to tap them to reposition the nation.
According to him, “Having Mr. Charles Sylvester, who had showed his tenacity, business acumen and knowledge of international best practice, can only makes the NPA produce profitable projects. I am also kindly praying that our President will continue to tap on the resources of his Diaspora to engage them in all aspects of governance into other agencies and parastatals in the country which would create giant strides for President Buhari’s administration. It is for the nation’s gains and showed a governance that incorporates inclusiveness and reaching out to Diaspora Nigerians.”
Charles Efe Sylvester is a London-based entrepreneur and a leading African employer of labour in Europe. His company in Europe manages more than 200 staff. He is a community leader empowering the Nigerian communities in the UK and across Europe.
