ICRC boss nominated on African Ports advisory board
Mr Chidi Izuwah, Acting Director-General, Infrastructure Concession Regulatory Commission (ICRC), has been nominated to the Ports Evolution 2017 Advisory Board, to ensure professionalism in maritime events in the Africa Port Evaluation 2017.
Mrs Manji Yarling, Acting Head of Communications, ICRC, announced this in a statement on Tuesday in Abuja.
According to Yarling, the nomination is in recognition of Nigeria’s critical role in Africa’s maritime sector.
“African Ports Evolution, now in its sixth year, is Africa’s elite transport event, saddled with the responsibility of bringing industry experts from across the continent and the world together.
“These experts will present solutions for the development of the African maritime sector,’’ she said.
African Ports Evolution is designed for African ports authorities, terminal operators, shipping lines, bulk exporters and government to determine the scale of planned marine construction across the African continent.
It ensures private sector collaboration and gives coastal and hinterland stakeholders proven and future-proofed solutions for demand driven port expansion.
The ICRC boss is one of only four heads of regulatory agencies from Nigeria billed to attend the event.
The other regulatory heads include the Director-General of NIMASA, Executive Secretary of the Nigerian Shippers Council and the Managing Director of the Nigerian Ports Authority.(NAN)
