The
Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) and the Nigeria Meteorological Agency (NEMA)
have set up a committee to advance effective strategy for maintenance of the
coastal areas within the NPA’s jurisdiction.
This was disclosed in a statement by
the NPA in Lagos.

According to the statement, Malam
Habib Abdullahi, the Managing Director of the NPA, said the authority would
provide meteorological equipment to the pilotage districts to assist NEMA’s
duties within the coastal area.
 Abdullahi made the disclosure while receiving
the Director-General of NEMA, Dr Anthony Anuforom, who paid him a courtesy
visit to his office at the NPA headquarters in Marina, Lagos.
“Nigerian Ports Authority will provide
meteorological equipment to all pilotage districts within the organisation.
“It will assist the Nigerian
Meteorological Agency in taking care of the entire coastal areas of her
operations,” the statement reads.
The NPA boss noted that the improved
weather forecast aided by advanced technology could be achieved in the maritime
industry too.
Abdullahi said that the decision for
the support was in line with the NPA’s Corporate Social Responsibility, and
considering the importance of the agency’s activities to the NPA’s operations.
It is expected of the committee that
was established, to develop strategies and modalities for the maintenance of
facilities for uninterrupted provision of services, and how the collaboration
benefits both agencies.
Representing the NPA in the committee
are Capt. Jerome Angyunwe, an Assistant General Manager, Harbours and Mr Sam
Nwigwe, Senior Manager (Radio).
