NPA Scores 100% on Ease of Doing Business


The Presidential Enabling Business Environment Council (PEBEC) has scored the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) 100% in performance on the ease of doing business in Nigeria.

This was made known at the just concluded PEBEC cohort #3 program.

The recognition was given as a result of the agency’s dedication to driving reforms.

PEBEC stated that the NPA carried out 63 reforms doubling the number of activities it engaged in more than the other MDAs thereby earning her the title of “the most committed agency” that achieved 100 percent feat.

The most significant reform under cohort #3 is the reduction in export processing time after benchmarking against competing jurisdictions.

“The authority can reduce its processing time for exports from an average of 10 days to a timeline of three to five days, depending on the arrival of the lifting vessel. Other reforms embarked on are ensuring transparency, reduced costs, and streamlined processes,” the Council said.

While addressing the press, Mohammed Bello-Koko, managing director of the NPA, commended the frontline role of Gboyega Oyetola, minister of Marine and Blue Economy, for a pragmatic leadership that catalysed the comprehensive reform agenda being implemented in the maritime industry.

He said such also resulted in the Ministry of Marine and Blue Economy emerging as the ‘Best Performing Ministry’ in driving PEBEC reforms.
