Laursen Assumes Office As Country Manager Of APM Terminals Nigeria

Klaus Holm Laursen has been appointed as the new Country Manager for APM Terminals Nigeria. In his new function, the Country Manager will oversee the works of APM Terminals in Apapa, Onne and Kano.

Until his appointment, Mr Laursen was the Managing Director of APM Terminals, Poti Seaport – the largest port in Georgia, handling liquids, dry bulk, passenger ferries and 85% of Georgia’s container traffic.

According to a statement issued by APM Terminals on Wednesday, Mr Laursen has worked with the Maersk Group since 1998 in various capacities and has served in various countries including Denmark, Malaysia, South Korea, Netherlands, Jordan and Egypt.

“I am happy to work in Nigeria. I believe Nigeria has a lot of potentials and our company is happy to contribute to the economic development of the country and the well being of the people.

“We will work with the Nigerian Ports Authority, Nigerian Shippers’ Council, Nigeria Customs Service and other relevant agencies of government at all levels to actualize the Ease of Doing Business policy of the Federal Government and make the ports more efficient.

“APM Terminals in Nigeria will offer reliable, safe and efficient operations with a continuous improvement focus. We also assure our customers of flexible and solutions-oriented approach to address their needs, in addition to deploying innovative, digital solutions that enable customers to order their services quickly and easily,” the statement quoted Mr Laursen as saying.

This year, APM Terminals Apapa has acquired seven additional Mobile Harbour Cranes as part of a fresh investment of USD80million for the year 2020-2021, bringing the total investment by the company at the Apapa Port since 2006 to USD438million, which is the highest by any private terminal operator in Nigeria, resulting in significant improvements in productivity.

APM Terminals has also restored a regular rail service for the evacuation of cargo by rail to reduce pressure on the roads. Last week, the terminal introduced two daily rail connections to Alagomeji Terminal in Yaba and Ijoko Terminal in Ogun State. With the connections, trucks can be deployed to both locations to collect containers and return empties, which the Nigeria Railway Corporation (NRC) will convey back to the port.

To reduce truck traffic on the road, APM Terminal Apapa also receives and loads containers on barges, in addition to operating a truck safety program which ensures that designated, physically protected areas are provided for drivers conducting operational activities outside of their truck cabs, as well as safety instructions specific to each facility’s layout and traffic flow.

Looters

The Plateau State Government on Wednesday begun the prosecution of over 300 suspected looters and arsonists in the state.
They were accused of looting, criminal trespass and inciting public disturbance, among other charges.
The suspects, who had been in military and police detention after they were arrested in different parts of Jos and the Bukuru metropolis between Saturday and Sunday, were moved to the Bassa Local Government Area on Wednesday for arraignment.

The defendants were arraigned one after the other at Jebbu Bassa Area Court before several judges including Justices N S Dashe, Adar Roseline Baraje, and L B Longs as well as Lawal Sulaiman, among others.

In all the cases brought before the judges, the prosecutors from the state Ministry of Justice told the court that the accused persons committed the offences against the state and should be prosecuted according to the law.
The defence counsels, however, pleaded with the court to temper justice with mercy for the accused persons, particularly as they were first offenders.
The defence counsels also pleaded for short sentencing with an option of fine after their clients pleaded guilty to the offences.

"Also found worthy of honour was Bashir Abubakar, an Asst Comptroller-General of Customs, who rejected a bribe of $412,000 per container offered him by drug traffickers seeking to bring 40 containers of Tramadol into Nigeria. A fine example of incorruptibility, worthy of emulation"
