The Executive Director/CEO of NEPC, Dr. Ezra Yakusak

The Nigerian Export Promotion Council (NEPC) is set to reposition its operational activities to meet the needs of the exporting community in line with the Federal Government’s Medium-Term Development Plan. 

This is sequel to the tremendous performance recorded in the non-oil export sector in 2022 in which the sector recorded a significant and highly impressive result of US$ 4.820 billion recorded for the year 2022 representing an increase of 39.91% over 2021.

This was disclosed by the Executive Director/CEO of NEPC, Dr. Ezra Yakusak at NEPC 2023 Work Plan Review and Validation Session recently in Abuja. Dr. Ezra noted that the Session was targeted at aligning the Council’s operational activities with that of the Federal Ministry of Industry, Trade and Investment (FMITI).

In a press release issued in Abuja by

Head, Corporate Communications, Ndubueze Okeke explained that in line with the FMITI Ministerial Mandate (2020-2023) and the Medium-Term Development Plan (2020- 2025), two important reference materials that have over the past few years guided the implementations of the Council projects and activities and of which we are expected to align to, to support the diversification agenda of the Federal Government the need to reposition our operational activities is desirable.

Before this, he pointed out that Departments and outstation offices implemented projects at will without recourse to the Work plan and allocation of resources nothing that the practice has not only made tracking of projects difficult and unaccountable but grossly affected the impact assessment of such projects which do not align with set project implementation frameworks.
