Reasons Behind NSC Withdrawal of Services from Stakeholders

By: Joy Enamuna

The Nigeria Shippers’ Council (NSC) has highlighted disparities in fee payments between multinational service providers and Nigerian operators, prompting concerns over fairness and compliance.

During a recent program at the NSC headquarters in Apapa, Lagos, Executive Secretary/CEO Barr. Akutah Pius Ukeyima underscored the issue, emphasizing that while multinational entities have duly registered and paid fees to the council, many Nigerian operators have not followed suit.

Speaking at a sensitization program for port service providers and users on online payments, Barr. Akutah Pius Ukeyima, represented by Director Cajetan Agu, noted the transition from manual to automated payments within the council. He emphasized the benefits of online registration and fee payment, including access to vital information, elimination of anonymous shippers, clarity on port fees, and enhanced customer understanding.

Asserting the mandatory nature of registration with NSC for port service providers and users, Barr. Akutah Pius Ukeyima and Assistant Director Celestine Akujobi warned that failure to comply with registration and fee payment could lead to withdrawal of NSC services.
