The Tin Can Island Port (TCIP) Customs Area Controller (CAC), Comptroller Dera Nnadi mni, has expressed his excitement over the significant strides achieved in the maritime industry under the leadership of key figures such as the Honourable Minister of the Blue and Marine Economy, Prince Adegboyega Oyetola CON, Managing Director of the Nigeria Ports Authority (NPA) Alhaji Bello Koko, and Comptroller General of Customs (CGC) Bashir Adewale Adeniyi MFR.

According to an official statement made available to Hybrid News noted that the collaborative efforts among these leaders have resulted in tangible developments, notably the initiation of the 24-hour cargo clearance at Tin Can Island port.

Additionally, CAC Nnadi said the improvements in port infrastructure and traffic management along port access roads have been notable achievements.

Nnadi stressed that the Tin Can Port Command of Nigeria Customs Service has pledged full support for these initiatives aimed at positioning the Lagos ports as a competitive hub within the subregion. Consequently, he said the Command has undertaken reforms in its operational processes, including the implementation of the CGC approved WCO-Nigeria Time Release Study and automation of the Command bond system. “Moreover, training programs for officers and stakeholders are underway, with an innovative approach of inviting freight forwarder associations to facilitate sessions, enabling them to guide improvements tailored to their needs” he noted.

While acknowledging some stakeholders’ hesitancy towards reforms, Nnadi emphasized the Command’s commitment to supporting and rewarding those willing to adapt. Efforts to encourage voluntary compliance are being instituted, aiming to establish Standard Operational Procedures for equitable operations.

Nnadi expressed optimism that ongoing automation efforts will further enhance efficiency and address challenges like server downtime, while also urging stakeholders, including the media, to sustain and amplify positive developments in the industry.

With these strides, the maritime industry under the visionary leadership of key figures is poised for transformative growth, setting the stage for enhanced operational efficiency and stakeholder collaboration.
