Bello-Koko, NPA MD Charges Officials on Performance

Managing Director of Nigerian Ports Authority(NPA), Mohammed Bello-Koko has charged top officials of the authority to work optimally and deliver efficiently within expected timelines in line with the drive of the President Bola Ahmed Tinubu administration.

The MD who stated this at an in-house meeting on cascading the deliverables arising from the presidential and ministerial performance bonds earlier signed by Adegboyega Oyetola, the Minister of Marine and Blue Economy with President Tinubu followed by another he signed with the minister, said government will not take excuses for poor performance.

Bello-Koko warned that while the NPA will recognise and reward exceptional performance, it will not hesitate to sanction those who fail in their responsibilities.

He added that the NPA management is ready to provide necessary support that will aid personnel productivity with strict adherence to timeliness as the bond specify timelines for delivery without delays

In his speech obtained by our reporter, the NPA MD said “For the avoidance of doubt, the ministerial bond that has set out the Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) by which we will be adjudged as an Authority is in itself a derivative of a performance bond which the Honourable Minister of Marine and Blue Economy had earlier signed with His Excellency Mr. President.

“Given the result orientation of the current administration, this retreat which has been put together at great cost to equip you with the understanding and clarity of purpose necessary for result delivery is therefore one that requires maximum seriousness and concentration, as there would be zero tolerance for underperformance going forward.

“As you will find out from the elucidations of our resource persons, every Unit, Section, Department, Division and Directorate has a role to play in fulfilling the Authority’s targets and just as performers will be identified and rewarded, underperformers will be found out and sanctioned.

“There are strict timelines attached to every performance indicator, so formulating performance strategies that cannot be implemented in quick time will be tantamount to an exercise in futility.

“Arising from this retreat Management expects specific, measurable, achievable, realistic and time-bound input, output and outcomes that will stand us out as pacesetters in the comity of federal government agencies.

Let me seize this moment to reiterate this Management team’s commitment to providing you all the enabling requirements without any delay whatsoever” he said
