A leading Roll-on-Roll-off terminal operator in Nigeria, Ports and Terminal Multiservices Limited (PTML) has donated a brand new Toyota Hilux Van to the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) as part of efforts to cushion the effect of its headquarters building which was gutted by fire recently in Lagos.
The Managing Director of PTML, Mr. Ascanio Russo, who handed over the keys of the vehicle to the Executive Director, Engineering and Technical Services of NPA, Prof. Idris Abubakar, shortly after assessing the level of damage done to the NPA headquarters building, condemned the attack on the Authority.
According to Russo in a statement, the attack was “senseless” and assured NPA of PTML’s commitment to continue to work together and support it.
“We came here as PTML and Grimaldi to express our sympathy to the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) for the horrendous attack they suffered three weeks ago when the headquarters was burnt.
“We came here to present this vehicle and this is a way for us to show our support to the Authority because we know that in times like this, it is our duty to support NPA, which has always been very supportive to us and to the whole port industry,’’ said Russo.
