The NSC Boss reiterated that as Port Economic Regulator the NSC will not relent in its responsibilities.

In a statement by the Deputy Director, Public Relations Unit, Rakiya Dhikru-Yagboyaju, the NSC boss, appreciated the management of Lekki Deep Sea Port for the visit and expressed the Council’s readiness to partner with the port in the areas that will boost their operations in the country.

Stating their mission to NSC, Mr. Du – Ruogang, said that Lekki Deep seaport has been adding value to Nigeria’s economy since it started commercial operations in 2023, due to its ability to receive large vessels.

The LPLEL boss, who congratulated Barr. Akutah on his appointment as the Executive Secretary and Chief Executive Officer of Nigerian Shippers’ Council, commended the Council’s regulatory activities at the nation’s ports.

He also appreciated the unflinching support that the management of Lekki Port has been receiving from Nigerian Shippers’ Council. He called for continuity of the support as it is in the interest of both parties and indeed Nigeria, to make Nigeria the maritime hub for West and Central Africa.
