I am the Managing director of Ports and Terminals Operations Nigeria Limited (PTOL) – a private terminal operator at the Port Harcourt Port, Rivers State. I previously worked at the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) where I rose through the ranks to the position of Assistant General Manager before retiring in April 2005. I was educated at the University of Benin and the University of Wales College of Cardiff, United Kingdom (UK), where I obtained my M.Sc in Maritime Studies. I have attended and obtained various certificates from other institutions including the Institute of Management Technology, Enugu and the Nigerian Institute of Transport Technology (NITT), Zaria.
As a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport I have enjoyed being involved in WiLAT since the group was established in Nigeria in 2010. I have worked closely with Aisha Ali Ibrahim in developing this first Nigerian group and am now pleased to represent women and WiLAT groups within Africa. My early experiences in Nigeria have helped me to support and encourage the development of other local groups. CILT has been my chosen career partner because of its high and consistent professional standards and I aim to share these standards for the benefit of women in our industry throughout the Africa region.
