The newly appointed Executive Secretary/CEO of Nigerian Shippers’ Council (NSC), Akutah Pius Ukeyima, formally resumed duty at the council headquarters in Apapa, Lagos on Wednesday.

Ukeyima, who was received by top management staff of the council, said he was ready to entrench teamwork to fulfill the mandate of the NSC.

Ukeyima said the Nigerian Shippers’ Council is integral to the success of the agenda of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu and the Minister of Marine and Blue Economy, Gboyega Oyetola.

He said over the years, the nation has been mulling the diversification of the economy from oil dependency to other revenue generating sectors.

According to him, with the creation of the Ministry of Marine and Blue Economy, the mandate of the NSC has become more robust.

He said there is a lot of work to do, noting that the staff of NSC are “highly knowledgeable, experienced, and also equal to the task ahead”.

“Sometimes we don’t appreciate knowledge but moving forward, we will reward hard work,” he said.
