The resolution was made when the British High Commissioner to Nigeria, Paul Arkwright, paid a courtesy visit to NPA’s head office in Marina, Lagos.

Mr. Arkwright was jointly received by the Managing Director of the authority, Hadiza Usman, Executive Director, Finance and Administration, Mohammed Belo-Koko and Executive Director, Marine and Operations, Sekonte Davies and other management staff of the authority.

The High Commissioner promised to assist the authority to address the challenges facing the Nigerian port industry while identifying piracy as one of the major challenges in the country’s maritime industry.

Mr. Arkwright said that Britain would make significant contribution to enhance operational efficiency in the port. He stressed the need to support NPA towards finding lasting solution to the issue of piracy in the country’s waters.

NPA’s Managing Director, Hadiza Usman, welcomed any assistance that would boost port efficiency from Britain in order to move the port forward. She also pledged stronger relationship between the NPA and UK companies operating in the Nigerian maritime sector.
