Board chairman condemns burning of NPA building


THE Chairman, Board of the Nigerian Ports Authority, Chief Akin Ricketts, has condemned the burning of the agency’s headquarters in Marina, Lagos State, by hoodlums, allegedly in the name of #EndSARS protesters.

Ricketts, in a statement made available on Thursday in Benin, said the youth had the right to protest, but added that it had become obvious that the peaceful protest has been hijacked by criminals.

He warned that the destruction of a critical facility such as the NPA would affect the economic activities of the ports.

According to him, as a largely import-dependent nation, the port was a critical aspect of the nation’s economy.

He added that the negative development would further degrade the country in the eyes of the international communities.
