NSC seeks media support to drive new port order


The Nigerian Shippers’ Council (NSC) on Wednesday
urged the media to support its drive in instituting a new port order as the
port economic regulator.

The Deputy Director, Public Relations
Department of NSC, Mr Ignatius Nweke, made the plea in a message to the 2015
Annual Seminar for Maritime Journalists held in Lagos.
Nweke, who was represented by a Principal
Public Relations Officer of the NSC, Ms Rebecca Adamu, said the council was
convinced that with media support, the ports would be sanitised.
He urged the media to partner with the
Federal Government in moving the maritime industry forward.
Nweke said maritime journalists should
collaborate with the NSC as the economic regulator to drive the new port order.
He said such regular seminar for journalists would
create a platform where both journalists and stakeholders would be on the same
page in championing the cause of the industry.
Nweke also urged maritime journalists to
write developmental stories that would be beneficial to operators the industry.
“What is expected is that a reporter
covering the maritime beat should devote his or her time in writing
developmental and objective stories to the advantage of the sector, ‘’ he said.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports
that the seminar was organised by First Mediacom Network Ltd., publishers of
Shipping Position Live and supported by the NSC.
