The recently constituted Board of Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) led by its Chairman, Emmanuel Olajide Adesoye has signaled readiness to facilitate a successful dredging of Calabar Seaport as part of measures to generate more jobs and widen the coast of the economy.

He gave the assurance while inspecting facilities at the Seaport with members of the Board earlier this week.

Adesoye advised concessionaires to put their complaints in writing and forward to the Board for necessary action, saying the board will hear from all sides before taking a decision that will be in the interest of the port and economy.

Other members of the Board who accompanied Adesoye are Suleiman Ibrahim Halilu, Constance Harry Mashal, Umar Shu’aibu and Charles Efe Emukowhate Sylvester.

The Board members inspected facilities at ECM Terminals Limited, Intels, Doddy Jetties Oil & Gas, Shoreline Logistics Nigeria Limited and Calabar Free Trade Zone, among other locations.

However, at ECM Terminals Limited, General Manager of the group, Kingsly Iheanacho, appealed to the Board to help facilitate the dredging of the Seaport, decrying that ECM Terminals was performing below its capacity despite mobilizing huge resources to install state of the art equipment.
