VOL 1 – Improving Port Efficiency-Emerging Good Practice From Nigeria

BACKGROUND

The maritime sector is important to Nigeria’s economic survival. That notwithstanding, challenges to ports administration have created circumstances of excessive delays to import/export processes, red tape, human and vehicular congestion in and around the ports, and illegal charges leading to high costs of business operations1.

Given the economic costs of these challenges and the losses that come with the attendant inefficiencies, estimated at a whopping $7 billion annually2, the Nigerian Government through the Nigeria Shippers’ Council (NSC), the Technical Unit on Government and Anti-Corruption Reforms (TUGAR) and the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC), in collaboration with the Maritime Anti-Corruption Network (MACN) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), in 2012 embarked on a process of reforms to address the challenges in the maritime sector.

The collaboration led to the establishment of the Port Service Support Portal (PSSP) housed by the NSC and the Project Steering Committee (PSC). The PSC and PSSP have been at the forefront of the reforms inthe nigerian maritime sector for improved efficiency, better service delivery and better business environment. The efforts of the PSC have resulted in the publication of Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) for Ports Agencies and recently publication of the Nigerian Port Process Manual (NPPM). The NSC is officially charged with the responsibility of leading its implementation and enforcement. Both documents have far-reaching implications for operations in Nigerian Ports and Terminals.

While the PSSP housed and managed by the NSC is a complaints management and Port service support solution aimed at addressing challenges of business-to- business transactions across Nigeria’s Ports, enabling stakeholders to submit and track the status of their complaints, enquiries and port service requests in real- time, the SOPs were intended to improve transparency and accountability in Nigerian Ports, while the NPPM is reducing bureaucratic roadblocks  and improving operational efficiency in the sector.

Both documents and the PSSP have far reaching implications for operations in Nigerian Ports and

$10 billion in non-oil exports and N2.5 trillion in corporate revenues, including the drop of 38-40% in industrial capacity utilization according to the Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI)3.

The Maritime Anti-Corruption Network (MACN) on its part set up a Help Desk for its members as well as a Mobile App SOP Toolkit and a User Experience Diary for Clearing Agents. From June 2020 to date, the Help Desk has recorded over 204 Ship Arrival Notifications (Table 1), mostly sent by Shipping Companies, provided feedback to 27 issues raised and worked with the NSC to resolve 24 of these issues within a 1 – 8 hour timeframe. Overall, from 2011 to 2021, a total of 1115 incidents (Graph 1) have been reported by Ship captains calling on Nigerian ports using the MACN Anonymous Incident Data System. Since 2020, there has been a decline in the number of reported incidents from a high of 266 incidents in 2019 to 125 in 2020 and about 36 (at the time of writing) in 2021 (Figure 1). The implication of this is that transactions for Ship Captains using Nigerian Ports has become more transparent, predictable, and consistent.

Equally, the improvements in transparency, predictability, consistency of operations at the ports for Ship Captains has led to the transformation of the Bonny Working Group formed by MACN Members to a general-purpose Dry and Wet Cargo Working Group that engages with issues arising from ports around the world generally. The significance of this development has been that the membership of MACN, consisting of over 160 shipping companies responsible for over 50% of global cargo-carrying capacity and 70-80% of global containerized cargo, is beginning to change its largely negative perception of the Nigerian business environment and the effects of corruption on the sector’s viability. Over the long term, these incremental changes, if sustained, will contribute towards improving Nigeria’s position on the Ease of Doing Business rankings as well as Corruption Perceptions Index in a fundamental way that can drive investment and development in the country’s maritime sector.

The data has been collected through MACN’s Anonymous Incident Reporting System which enables maritime players to submit reports on corrupt demands they have faced during port operation. Both MACN members and non-members share reports of corrupt demands through this system.

“Any other port authority”, means it is a port authority not listed in our options (customs, immigration, port health, etc.)

Subsequent editions of the bulletin will showcase developments within the Nigerian maritime sector and how well actors are responding to ongoing collective actions at reforming the sector.

CBiIL Enhances Fulani Dairy Cooperative Model in Paikon Kore Community

CBI Innovation Limited (CBiIL) supported the integration of the Fulani’s settled in the Paikon Kore grazing reserve into the supply chain driven by Nestlé and Câm.

During the first week of May 2021; CBiIL were able to identify and map smallholder dairy farmers within Gwagwalada area council to integrate them too into the value chain activities. From our assessment, we found that the women in pastoralist communities have huge potential with regards to the potential milk volume that can be supplied. CBiIL also confirmed that there were 24,000 cows within the reserve during our review. The activity enabled CBiIL to sensitize and create awareness of the benefits of this inclusive business opportunity amongst the Fulani Milk Producers (FMP) in their communities within the grazing reserve and close proximity to the milk collection centers.

In addition, this involved setting up a 2 days training program for the FMPs including 50% women and 40% youths; educating them on Life, Business and technical skills which will equip them with the knowledge on how to manage their dairy business.

Furthermore, CBiIL identified and registered existing dairy cooperatives and supported the formation of new ones. We started off by going into the community to address existing cooperatives and its members. This activity involved setting up meetings with Cooperative leaders and community leaders within and around Paikon Kore Grazing reserve for the purpose of strengthening and the formation of new cooperatives. It was agreed that each Cooperative will comprise of not more than 25 members respectively. During the course of this meeting, CBiIL explained and advised that the Cooperative leaders  hold discussions with their members on how new cooperatives will be formed and be responsible for their respective registrations. This was pivotal, as it will allow them have a voice, be in control of the formation of the cooperatives and this will eventually lead them be more committed to the development of the inclusive business idea of the partnership.

Correspondingly, in the process of organizing new cooperatives; CBiIL assigned someone to inform the communities outside the grazing reserve such as Passo and Kutunku which are without cooperative groups that CBiIL plan to schedule a meeting with them to discuss the formation of cooperatives. On the 10th of May, CBiIL visited the Specialist Center Community where the meeting was being held. Ultimately, after introductions and discussions, The Ardo of the Specialist Community welcomed CBiIL and appreciated them for considering their community as part of the program. The Youth leader of the Specialist Community Mallam Yunusa also showed his appreciation and assured CBiIL their maximum support.

CBiIL were able to identify 166 (95 men & 61 women) registered members and 20 people who were not registered . We were also able to collate a total amount of 23 Cooperatives within and around the grazing reserve and also estimate the liters of milk that could be collected from each cooperative.  This involved conducting a census survey, aimed at finding out the number of cattle in the community to enable CBiIL to determine the quantity of milk we can offtake and to determine the number of households in the community.

The cooperatives are arranged in a cluster of 5 for easy access and organisation. While the total milk potential estimated is 5,050 liters. Additionally, discussions are still ongoing with other interested communities for the formation of new cooperatives. We were able to register 18 out of the 23 cooperatives on ground, while the remaining are yet to be registered.

In continuation of creating awareness of the benefits of this business opportunity to the cooperative members, we initiated further discussions with the cooperatives to further enlighten them about the project which was scheduled for mid May.

The discussions were held and covered areas such as confirming the status and modalities of the registration; All the Cooperatives registered provided CBiIL with certificates of registration for legitimacy/compliance purposes.

In addition, CBiIL started identifying local inputs service providers assessing their capacity and empowering them to provide needed services. This involved training and coaching on agribusiness skills and commercial access. Thus, we asked each cooperative to provide 2 names, encouraging both genders, aged between 18-24 years with a cap of 30 years for the 2SCALE Opportunity for Youth Employment (OYE) Life & Business Skills training scheduled for 27th-28th of July 2021. This training involved the teaching and empowerment of the FMPs life basic and technical skills; market linkages, commercial access and market potentials.

During the course of this activity, we were able to identify and empower milk transporters; CBiIL focused mainly on youths, to identify and linked them to FMPs to provide milk transport service from the farm to the MCCs in a responsible and efficient way. This involved distribution of motor bikes to the cooperatives; and we went further to engage and explain to the cooperatives that they will be responsible for the motor bikes and the mode of payment will be charged or paid through their milk that would be off taken

CBiIL Engages with Community at Paikon Kore Grazing Reserve

In January 2021, CBi Innovations Limited, under the Nigeria Livestock Development Project (NLDP), carried out business support services (BSS) activities at Paikon Kore grazing reserve in Gwagwalada Area council of Abuja. These activities were a part of the goal to develop 1,000 ha of grazing area, and demonstrate how the establishment of improved pasture can increase productivity of indigenous cattle and contribute to the professionalization of settled Fulanis as dairy farmers.

The activities are as follows:

Advocacy visit to community leaders and cooperative leaders at Paikon Kore grazing reserve (18th January, 2021)

This was a day visit to sensitize the leaders on: 

  1. Census survey to be conducted in the community.
  2. Solicit for individual lands from the pastoralist so they can grow Napier grass individually for their cattle to feed.
  3. Second dose of vaccine for the cattle in their community  

Enumerator and Trainee interview and selection (19th – 21st January, 2021)

In preparation for the proposed enumeration exercise, interview and selection of enumerators and trainees were conducted ahead of the exercise. The individuals selected assisted in the census survey at the grazing reserve.  

The exercise was conducted by CBI Innovations Dairy team where interview questions were issued to the youths from outside the community and youths within the community. 10 enumerators were selected outside the community and 10 trainees from within the community. After the selection was done a training was conducted at Paikon Kore grazing reserve on how to conduct themselves during the exercise and also on how to use the devices provided for the exercise.

Identification of existing cooperatives and registration of new members (20th January, 2021)

The third activity was identification and registration of existing co-operatives. The goal was to identify existing cooperatives in the community, register new ones and also new members. We were able to identify 166 (95 men and 61 women) registered as members, then discovered 20 persons in number without co-operatives.

Enumeration survey (25th January – 3rd February, 2021)

The fourth activity was the census survey aimed at determining the number of cattle in the community to enable us determine the quantity of milk we can offtake and also to determine the number of households in the community. At the end of the exercise, 692 households were interviewed.

Observations

  1. The exercise was to cover all households in the grazing reserve but upon visit to some of the households, we discovered herds go out for grazing early in the morning as a result of this, some households were not captured.
  1. The vaccination exercise appreciated by the pastoralist based on their feedback. However, some of the pastoralists weren’t privileged to get their cattle vaccinated as information didn’t get to them early enough when the exercise was conducted in December, 2020.
  1. During the course of the Census survey showed most of the Pastoralists had similar names.
