86 ships expected at various terminals in Lagos ports


The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) on Monday called for collaborative efforts by stakeholders in disaster management.

The zonal coordinator of the agency, Musa Ilallah, made the call during a one-day interactive session with security personnel and other stakeholders in Kano.

The forum, with the theme ‘Emergency Preparedness and Joint Response to Disaster’ was organised by the agency.

He said that despite efforts being made by stakeholders in disaster management, there was still communication gap that existed, hence the need for such forum to address the challenges.

“This forum is aimed at exchanging ideas by the stakeholders for effective disaster management in the future.

“While preparing for response, there is the need for information sharing, unity and collective participation”, he said.
