The newly appointed Executive Secretary/CEO of Nigerian Shippers’ Council (NSC), Emmanuel Jime, has resumed office. 

Jime resumed at the NSC Abuja liaison office on Tuesday, more than a week after his appointment to the position by President Muhammadu Buhari. 

Meanwhile, the Nigeria Export Processing Zones Authority (NEPZA) has expressed desire to partner with the NSC to significantly scale-up the Federal Government’s non-oil sector deliverables to Nigerians.

NEPZA Managing Director, Prof. Adesoji Adesugba, stated this while congratulating Jime on his appointment. Jime, a politician from Benue State, is a former Managing Director of NEPZA. 

“As your agency also regulates dry port operations in Nigeria, we have unique opportunities to collaborate and work together for the development of the various value chains of the economy and bridge economic infrastructural deficit facing the nation,” Adesugba said. 

“I look forward to working closely with you through multiple partnerships and collaborations to realise the lofty agenda of President Muhammadu Buhari on the non-oil sector of the economy.”
