The Managing Director of Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA), Mohammed Bello Koko has said that the authority will strive to make Nigerian ports the leading ports in Africa.

He said this on Thursday during NPA Day at the ongoing Enugu International Trade Fair.

“We will strive to be the leading port in Africa, a dream we can all realise with collective commitment of trade development partners to which the Enugu Chamber of Commerce belongs.

“The Nigerian maritime industry is a prime economic driver, bearing in mind that 85% by volume of economic activities are delivered through the ports worldwide. Maritime transport remains the gateway to the global marketplace. Ports are catalysts for economic development as they enable trade and support supply chain,” he said.
