The Executive Secretary and Chief Executive Officer of the Nigerian Shippers’ Council (NSC), Mr Hassan Bello, has described the country’s territorial waters as very safe, urging both offshore and onshore shipping companies to continue calling at Nigerian seaports to load and offload their cargoes.
He also said the Council will provide quality training and a sustainable manpower development template for the operatives of the Police and the Navy on the commercial aspect of shipping in its efforts to make the maritime sector the fulcrum of economic growth and diversification.
In an exclusive with newsmen in Abuja on Wednesday, Bello said the Council has deepened collaboration with the Nigeria Police and the Navy to guarantee safer channels for shippers as enshrined in Federal Government’s blueprint on promoting the ease of doing business.
