NPA Board Scraps Zonal Structure, Redeploys General Managers


The Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) has scrapped the zonal structure of the organization and reduced the number of General Managers from 25 to 22 in a wide-ranging shakeup which it said would make it more professional and performance-driven.
A press release sent to DDH Magazine by the Principal Manager Corporate and Strategic Communications, Ibrahim Nasiru, stated that the NPA Board approved the changes during its meeting today in Lagos.
The changes were also geared towards business process re-engineering and efficiency in its new role as the landlord of the port following the 2006 concession which transferred cargo handling to private terminal operators.
According to the release, “changes approved by the board include: the reduction in the number of General Managers from 25 to 22; the upgrade of the Hydrography and Dredging Department into a Division status to be headed by a General Manager in recognition of its strategic importance to the Authority; the upgrade of the Information and Communications Technology Department into a Division to take more responsibilities from Departments like Utilities; the creation of a new Monitoring and Regulations Division; the merger of the Capital Projects and Maintenance Divisions into a single Engineering Division to eliminate redundancies; the scrapping of the Special Duties Division; scrapping of the zonal office structure such that departments in the ports will now report directly to the head office.
“Other decisions taken include: a change in the nomenclature of nine departments and divisions including Public Affairs, which will now be known as Corporate Communications; Overseas Office (London Office) intoInternational Liaison Office; Capital Projects and Maintenance Divisions now to be known as Engineering Division; Hydrography& Dredging Department now Hydrography Services Division; Monitoring and Compliance Division now Monitoring and Regulation Division; Commercial and Port Promotion Services Department now Tariff& Billing Department; Secretary/Legal Services now Legal Services; Insurance & Risk Management Department now Enterprise Risk Management Department andthe Business Development and Joint Venture Department into Public Private Partnership Division.
“The Authority is convinced that this new structure will enhance its capacity to:
i. To meet its new mandate and strategic direction,
ii. Improve allocation and optimization of resources;
iii. Eliminate the duplication of resource and work duplication and
iv. Reduce cost to income ratio to the advantage of all stakeholders and Nigerians as a whole.
“In addition to the above, the initiative will specifically forestall:
i. the duplication of responsibilities across divisions
ii. the unnecessary bottleneck currently created by the zonal office structure
iii. redundancies created by the transfer for certain core function of the Authority to third party contractors and
iv. The multiple reporting relationships and attendant red tape.
The release promised that no job losses will be caused by the changes as staff of scrapped or merged departments will be suitably re-deployed within the organization and pleaded for the support of all Nigerians to the achievement of the set goals.
The changes in the cadre of general managers include Goje Abudulahi Aliyiu (General Manager Eastern Ports) who now takes charge of newly created Corporate and Strategic Communications Division; Capt. Ebubeogu Iheanacho who until now was General Manager Monitoring and Compliance Western Zone, who will now serve as General Manager in the Managing Director’s office; the General Manger Special Duties Mrs Ugo Madubuike now assumes duty as General Manager, Monitoring and Regulatory Services; Abdulahi Buhari who was General Manager SERVICOM will now take charge of Administration; while Mohammed Nasir Anas, moves from Administration to Security.
The former General Manager, Monitoring and Compliance of the Eastern Zone, Kabir Edward Dauda is now in charge of NPA’s Abuja Laison Office. Engr. Peter Obinomen, General Manger Capital Projects now assumes the function of GM, Public Private Partnership (PPP) and Engr. Mohammed Ahmed Rufai GM PP and D is now General Manager – Engineering; Mrs Ufere Carolyn, GM Superannuation now takes charge of SERVICOM and Arc Gbadamosi Rafiu Abiodun GM Operations Western Ports moves to Superannuation.
Similarly, the General Manger Maintenance Engr. Jatto Adeiza now takes charge of Land and Asset Administration while Onueyenwa Simeon Obumneme, General Manager C and SP now assumes duty as the General Manager in charge of ICT.
All handover formalities are expected to be completed by 8th September 2017.

Editorial

The Rising Profile of Regulatory Governance in the Transport Sector

Nigeria is going through the pains of a prolonged bad economy. However, many sectors and institutions are preparing for the next level in their functionality for the state. For example, the Nigerian Shippers Council which, since inception in 1978, has been intermediating the relationship between shipping lines, shippers, importers, exporters, the public sector and all other stakeholders in Nigerian maritime trade. Since the new millennium, the Council began pedagogical activities which have encompassed training and manpower development programmes for judges, maritime writers, freight forwarders and other practitioners in the sector.
