…advises Nigerians to obey WHO, NCDC protocols


Following the ravaging impact of coronavirus pandemic on socio-economic and health sectors of the country, a frontline maritime services organisation, Josepdam Port Services Nigeria Limited, has boosted Federal Government’s intervention efforts with a whopping donation of N60 million.


Josepdam, a terminal operator located in Tin Can Island, Apapa, was motivated by the need to urgently save lives as the pandemic has continously taken a toll on the global economy, including that of Nigeria, as well as leading to the death of some people that have been infected.


While making the donation, the management of the organisastion, which commended the Federal Government for urgently rising to the occasion, also said this was the time for everyone to join hands in battling the pandemic.


According to the management, “we promise to always look out for areas where our business and people can be utilised to further support all efforts of the government during this trying time.


“We urge everyone to strictly adhere to the safety guidelines as advised by the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the Nigerian Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) as we work together to flatten the curve as part of the fight against the outbreak.”


Josepdam Port Services is one of the leading terminals in Nigeria with three berths totaling 484 meters in length. The port service provider, which successfully gained concession agreement with Nigerian Ports Authority in 2006, is the operator of Tin Can Terminal A.


The firm has also diversified its operation by receiving, handling, storing and warehousing cargoes including bulk, general, breakbulk  and project cargoes.


With three berths of 13.5 meters in depth, Josepdam Port Services, which is ISO 9001:2015 certified, is able to accommodate up to 45,000 metric tonnes
