In a commendable move, the Nigerian government has bestowed upon Mohammed Bello Koko, the Managing Director/CEO of the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA), the prestigious National Productivity Order of Merit (NPOM) Award.
This recognition is in appreciation of Koko’s remarkable efforts in revitalizing the NPA, resulting in enhanced trade facilitation, increased revenue generation, and an unprecedented influx of funds into the Consolidated Revenue Fund (CRF).
The Bureau of Public Service Reforms (BPSR) conducted a comprehensive evaluation of the reforms initiated by Koko and his team at the NPA. As a result of their findings, the BPSR designated the NPA as a top-tier “Platinum Level” Organization, signifying its outstanding performance.
The assessment process involved the utilization of the BPSR Self-Assessment Tool (SAT) within the NPA. This tool enabled an impartial assessment, validated analysis, and an in-depth examination of the agency’s processes and practices. The assessment yielded an exceptional performance rating of 91.25 percent, further affirming the NPA’s commendable achievements under Koko’s leadership.
The National Productivity Order of Merit Award, established by the Federal Government, serves as a platform to honor and recognize highly productive individuals and organizations in Nigeria. It acknowledges their significant contributions during the preceding years in driving economic growth, wealth creation, and overall development.
The ultimate goal of the award is to enhance the quantity and quality of goods and services available in Nigeria, thereby fostering increased prosperity. With this well-deserved accolade, Mohammed Bello Koko joins an esteemed group of exceptional public administrators and industry leaders. These remarkable individuals are at the forefront of driving excellence and pushing the boundaries of national productivity, earning them recognition and celebration from the Federal Government.
