The Governing Board of the Oil and Gas Free Zones Authority (OGFZA) has commended the executive management of the agency for effective leadership.
Chairman of OGFZA’s board, Timipre Sylva, former governor of Bayelsa State, who made the commendation during the inaugural meeting of the board of the agency at the Oil and Gas Free Zone, Onne, Rivers State, said the OGFZA management has demonstrated commitment towards repositioning the authority.
Sylva said the managing director of OGFZA, Mr Umana Okon Umana, has demonstrated the right leadership in directing the affairs of the free zone regulator and in administering the oil and gas free zones under his control. “Umana is leading OGFZA in the right direction,” Chief Sylva said.
Sylva who outlined the vision and agenda for the new board said “One of the things we would like to achieve is to be able to provide power in Onne.
“We are engaging a group of investors that will build a turbine for the free zone; that is one of the things we would like to achieve before the end of the year.”
The OGFZA chairman said efforts to improve the revenue position of the agency through effective IGR strategy would receive equal priority attention adding the board would also do all that is necessary to resolve issues of conflict between the Nigeria Export Processing
Authority (NEPZA) and OGFZA.
“That will take a lot of our attention because we are going to make sure that we resolve those issues of conflict,” Chief Sylva said.
