…Shippers’ Council, NIWA, MAN Oron Get New Board Chairman
Former Board Chairman, NPA, Emmanuel Adesoye
President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the re-constitution of members of the governing boards of parastatals within the purview of the Ministry Transportation.
In a press release on Wednesday April 6, 2022 signed by Director of Press and Public Relations, Federal Ministry of Transport, Eric Ojiekwe, the removed Chairman, Board of the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA), Akin Ricketts was returned to NPA while, Mr Emmanuel Adesoye has been finally removed.
