The Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Mr. Boss Mustapha, has stated that the Nigerian Ports Authority's commitment and dedication has inspired the administration of President Muhammed Buhari in developing documentation policies that would improve the Maritime Sector of the Nation. 

Speaking at the Nigerian Ports Authority's Long Service and Merit Awards Ceremony on Saturday in Lagos, Mr. Mustapha commended the Managing Director and Management for upholding this highly effective culture of open acknowledgment, commendation, and reward of performance.
He applauded the Nigerian Ports Authority's Management for honoring and commemorating its employees who had given 20 years and above of their lives to the nation's service through the National Ports Authority.

"Recognition and reward means more when they are publicly communicated. So by deploring time and resources towards organizing this prestigious event of this magnitude, the Management of the Nigerian Ports Authority, has proven that high premium is placed on their human resources" he said. 

In addition to praising the recipients, Mr. Mustapha urged them to continue giving and urged other staff members and workers to strive for similar honors.

Mohammed Bello Koko, the Managing Director of the Nigerian Ports Authority and the event's host said the management was determined to highlight the value we place on our coworkers, whose dedication and contributions collectively account for the Authority's success.
He also acknowledged the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, the Hon. Minister for Transportation, the Hon. Minister for Labor, the Hon. Minister of State for Transportation, and the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Transportation for their tireless efforts in the well deserved salary increment. 

The Authority's whole personnel and the leaders of the Maritime Workers family were also praised by Koko for their unwavering position, perseverance, and maintenance of faith during the challenging process.

"The primary goals of this initiative are to equip our human resource assets to be the finest in the business."

In his remarks, Chief Akinwunmi Ricketts, the Board Chairman of the NPA, congratulated the recipients and promised to keep working to ensure that the staff are continuously recognized for their diligence, hard work, and excellence.

Meanwhile, in his message of goodwill, the Hon. Minister of Transportation, Engr. Mu'azu Jaji Sambo, urged other organizations in the sector to replicate such a significant occasion of honoring and praising deserving staff for their dedication and contributions as this would help reduce workplace redundancy.

One of the honorees, Suleiman Aliu Palladan, thanked God for keeping him alive and the Authority's management for organizing the event to publicly recognize and reward their dedication and commitment to the organization's growth. Suleiman Aliu Palladan served the Authority for more than 20 years.

Lady Mariam Akinshiloyi, who also received a prize for 25 years of service, was ecstatic and couldn't contain her thanksgiving to God and the management for assisting her in accomplishing such an achievement during the course of her career.

The Nigerian Ports Authority honored 433 long-serving employees for their commitment and dedication. In addition, Onne Port was named the cleanest port, and 20 employees received awards for best employee of the year, special recognition, and best port managers.

Hon. Minister of Transportation Engr Mu'azu Jaji Sambo, Hon. Minister of Labor & Employment Dr. Chris Ngige, Director General of NIMASA Bashir Jamoh, and other leaders of maritime sector organizations were present at the event.
