NPA MD tasks staff on service delivery



Managing director of the Nigerian Ports Authority(NPA), Malam Habib Abdullahi, has challenged the workforce of the organisation to rededicate themselves to effective service delivery this year in order to meet the expectations of Nigerians whom the Authority owe economic and social responsibilities.
Malam Abdullahi who gave the charge at a recent one-day seminar on 5-year strategic plan organized for the management team of the NPA told all employees of the organization to realize what their employers expected of them.
The MD asked the staff to evaluate themselves in the course of discharging their duties. He, however, commended the officers and staff for their support and cooperation to the authority in discharging its responsibilities over the years.
He said the seminar was most timely as it was designed to come up with strategies meant to ensure steady growth, enhance productivity and improve efficiency in the activities of Authority in the next five years.
Executive director finance and administration, Mr. Olumide Oduntan, also said the seminar was timely being a preparation for the retreat on the 5-year strategic plan that will be coming up later in the year.
He expressed optimism that the 5-year strategic plan would positively structure the organization for the challenges ahead as well as help successive managements of NPA “because they will have a comprehensive document to work with, which will be beneficiary to the organization, terminal operators and stakeholders.”
According to the assistant general manager corporate and strategic planning, Mr. Femi Jegede, a strategic plan is a road map to lead an organization from where it is now to where it would be in say five or ten years and that it is an essential first step in the development of a result-based accounting system. He said, the step taken by NPA management would bring a lasting change to the organization in the next 5 years.
Commenting on the 5-year strategic development plan, the consultant, Mr. Bayo Shonibare, commended the management for its initiative and explained that the successful execution of the outcome of the seminar would bring that desired change in the organization. He advised that the plan should be the responsibility of all employees of NPA.
The seminar was attended by general managers, port managers, assistant general managers, and various heads of departments and divisions drawn from all locations of the NPA
