The Federal Government yesterday launched the Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) and the Nigerian Seaports and the Port Service Support Portal (PSSP), two schemes operators and experts believe would eradicate sharp practices and corruption in the Nigerian ports.
The SOP is a guide to personnel of government agencies, terminal operators, shipping companies, freight forwarders, road hauliers, stevedores, marine surveyors, others.
The PSSP is a central mechanism for services support and pre-emptive resolution of service impediments brought forward by users; an online real tine public complaints/redress mechanism. The PSSP is domiciled and managed by the interim port economic regulator, the Nigerian Shippers Council and will be supervised by the project steering committee and the Independent Corrupt Practices and other Related Offences Commission (ICPC).
Both initiatives are driven by the Ministry of Transportation with the Nigerian Shippers Council as the main anchor.
Launching both platforms yesterday in Abuja, the Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, said “this is a major achievement in enhancing improved integrity and corrupt free system and the handling of complaints.”
He said the initiatives were in tandem with the administration’s emphasis on strong collaboration among government agencies.
VP Osinbajo also noted the “SOP and PSSP will not only streamline processes of operation but will serve as an important component of the need of our commitment to drive inclusive economic growth and development for the country.”
