Nigerian Ports Authority has banned its officials from collecting and accepting gift items and souvenirs from vessel crew members whenever they board vessels for official purposes.
In the minutes of meeting of the Ports Facility Security Officers, Nigerian Ports Authority ’s Assistant General Manager(Security) Mr. Mohammed Khalni said the purpose is to reduce access to the ports.
Khalin told the Forum that port access cards and other requirements are needed to access the ports even as other measures are also being considered to make the port areas more secured. He said that since the security agencies in the ports have been pruned, access into the ports should be more restricted.
Khalin also revealed that the Committee that was set up to ensure enforcement of the Executive Order by Acting President Yemi Osinbajo has also constituted a Task Force that will use the Lagos Port Complex as a case study.
