 Hadiza Bala Usman, MD NPA with His Excellency Senator Dr. Infeanyi Okowa, Governor Delta state, when the NPA team paid a courtesy visit to the government house in Asaba as part of her tour of Warri port. 
 
The  Managing  Director  of Nigerian Ports Authority Hadiza Bala Usman  has expressed  a strong desire to establish a cohesive partnership  with the government  of Delta State, which will in turn help to strengthen existing relationship between the state and the Auhthority.
 
Speaking during her courtesy visit  to the Governor of Delta State Senator,  Dr.  Ifeanyi Okowa at the government  house Asaba, the NPA MD told the  governor  that she was in the state  to inspect  the Ports facilities and breath  fresh ideas into the organisation while carrying along with her,  everyone who is interested  in increased  revenue  generation for the Authority.
 
In his response, the Executive  Governor of Delta State  his Excellency Senator Dr.  Ifeanyi Okowa  congratulated the managing director for her recent  appointment, adding that he would  love to see the Port dredged to accommodate  bigger vessels which would invariably  make the Port more functional, since Warri  Port is strategic to serve  for better trade facilitation around  it's catchment areas.
 
His Excellency  finally, added that the  state had started the process of dualizing  the Ughelli  to Asaba express  way with the believe that it would help the quick discharge  of cargo from the Port upon its completion, stressing that the entire state see the Port as its gate to connect to the larger world especially in the wake of the proposed industrial park.
