The Lekki Deep Seaport has joined other scores of port stakeholders and well -wishers to commiserate with the Nigerian Ports Authority NPA over the fire incident that engulfed its headquarters building located on Marina, Lagos.

Chief Executive Officer of the Lekki Port, Du Ruogang, who led other top executive management on a sympathy visit to the authority, said the entire management and members of staff of Lekki Port share in the grief of the NPA over the fire incident in which it lost several assets.

Recall that the Managing Director of NPA, Hadiza Bala Usman had recently reported that no fewer than 27 vehicles, including cars, utility vehicles, pick up vans and staff buses were set on fire. It was also gathered that a total of 33 other vehicles; 22 of which belong to members of staff were vandalised even as a Toyota Prado SUV, a Bajaj motorcycle and one Hilux patrol van were also stolen from the premises.

But the authority had assured the seaport stakeholders that the fire incident, which gutted part of the headquarters building, would not in any way affect port operations and other service delivery in the maritime industry.
