The Tin Can Island Container Terminal (TICT) has joined the large retinue of donors to support the Federal Government fight against the Coronavirus pandemic.
Towards this end, the terminal operator has doled out a princely sum of N100million towards the national cause.
“The donation to the Federal Government is in line with the company’s collaborative approach to act and be recognized as a proactive and pioneering change agent, keen and able to positively contribute to the development of Nigeria and the well-being of the citizens.
We must also observe all other precautionary measures including social distancing, frequent hand washing with soap under running water and the use of masks and gloves as may be applicable,” said Etienne Rocher, Managing Director of TICT.
In addition to measures taken by TICT to prevent the disease, the company has also advised port workers and port users to adhere strictly to safety guidelines issued by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) and other governmental authorities to stop the spread of the virus.
Tin Can Island Container Terminal ensures continuity of Nigerian supplies and is unwaveringly committed to continue investment in port development in Nigeria, even as it positions itself as a recognized industry player within the African continent.
TICT has made significant investments in infrastructure work and equipment and employs nearly 625 people, with the goal of making its terminal the most efficient terminal in Nigeria’s economic capital, linking with the metropolitan area and its industrial centers through motorways and the promotion of waterways development.
The N100millon donation by the TCIC is part of the cumulative amount of N700millon so far donated by port concessionaires who operate in Lagos ports under the umbrella of Seaports Terminal Operators Association of Nigeria (STOAN) towards the fight against the pandemic.
