The Chairman of the Lagos Deep Offshore Logistics (LADOL), Ladipupo Jadesimi, has expressed the hope of Nigeria emerging the hub for Floating Production Storage and Offloading vessel (FPSO) integration in the nearest future, The Guardian reports.
Jadesimi, who expressed optimism on the fast growing development at the logistics base, however, bemoaned allegations that the company is berthing vessels illegally at the base. Speaking during the visit of the Deputy Comptroller General of the Nigerian Customs Service (NCS), Exports and Free Zones, Grace Adeyemo, to the free zone, the LADOL boss quoting from the Act, Schedule seven, paragraph three, said: “Vessels including those coming from foreign waters or local waters may call directly at LADOL Free Trade Zone,”
Jadesimi called on government agencies to support the effort by LADOL to make Nigeria the hub of FPSO integration in West Africa adding that doing so will ensure increased revenue for the federal government. Adeyemo on her own part commended the LADOL chairman for his foresight and the tenacity to ensure that his vision becomes a reality.
