Rivers Port hosts Ghanaian delegation

The Rivers Port management played host to a delegation from Ghana Ports and Harbours Authority (GPHA).

The three-man delegation led by Samuel Ntow-Kummi was in Rivers Port, as part of their official visit to Nigeria to understudy the operation of the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA).

Ntwo-Kummi was accompanied during the trip to Nigeria by Roderick Odoo, and Nuhu Khalid.

Receiving the delegation, the immediate past Port Manager Mrs. Carolyn Akum Ufere now the General Manager Special Duties Marina, Lagos described the visit to the Rivers Port as a bold step, aimed at learning the rudiments of Nigerian Ports Authority system, with the aim to achieving synergy.

“There are certainly things you can learn from us and vice versa” Ufere stated.

She advised them to see how they can incorporate positive things they learn from Nigeria, when they get back to their country.

Earlier in his comments, the leader of Ghana Port delegation said, “We have learned a lot about Rivers Port and Onne Port even in Ghana, and our coming here have made us to see things for ourselves.

“We are particularly impressed after the guided tour of Port Harcourt and Onne Ports,” Ntwo-Kummi said.
