The Nigerian Shippers’ Council (NSC) is to partner Nigeria Institute of Transport Technology (NITT) in the area of effective training and capacity development of its personnel.
Speaking in Lagos when he received officials of NITT led by its Director General, Dr. Aminu Yusuff who paid him a courtesy visit, the Executive Secretary and Chief Executive Officer of Nigeria Shippers Council (NSC), Hassan Bello, said the capacity building is instrumental to the development of the nation’s maritime industry.
Bello said maritime agencies are knowledge driven institutions and harped on the need for the industry to be driven by personnel in specialized transport and other related fields.
He also commended the effort made so far by the institute noting that it has trained large number of professionals in the transport sector of the economy.
He said: “The two institutions are knowledge driven. What we need to do is to get the required knowledge because it is the knowledge that drives the industry and so many mistakes have been made due to lack of knowledge”.
Earlier, the Director General of NITT, Dr. Aminu Yusuff called for more patronage and support by sponsoring workforce on short and long term professional and continuous skill development programmes of the institute.”
