Port operators have been urged to embrace professionalism as this would assist them in recording tremendous success.
This was the position of the outgoing Port Manager of Lagos Port Complex, Mrs Olufunmilayo Olotu.
According to her, she was able to improve trade facilitation and surmounted other challenges that hindered effective business activities.
During her valedictory programme in Apapa last week, she said being professional helped her win the fight against corruption.
She said upon assumption of office four years ago, the challenges on the ground were quite enormous but she was able to overcome them.
“The challenges were also surmounted by promoting personal values of integrity, hard work, firmness, fairness, friendliness, transparency, accountability, and equity. I was able to improve trade facilitation in a safe, secure, and customer-friendly environment, zero-tolerance for corruption, debt recovery, increased revenue generation, and collection, recognition of star performance of workers irrespective of cadre among others.”
Meanwhile, she commended the contribution of the heads of departments and the entire workforce of LPC, members of trade unions, terminal operators, the shipping community, among others.Follow us on social media
