The maritime sector through Nigerian Port Authority (NPA) is set to get improved infrastructural boost as Heritage Bank Plc revealed plans to provide financing for building critical maritime infrastructures and other aspects of transport sector projects once policies driving the projects are well structured.

The Managing Director/CEO of Heritage Bank, Ifie Sekibo disclosed this as one of the panelists at the day-one of the International Association of Ports and Harbours (IAPH) Africa regional conference, themed, “African Ports & Hinterland Connectivity,” holding in Abuja.

He also stated that banks are willing to provide the necessary financing and support but the operators must be clear on where they are headed.  “The government will need to develop policies that will manage infrastructure programmes and we as bankers will give support. We are sure we can support, and we are sure going to support,” he said.

He added that the banking industry must stake in financing but we must have an understanding on what the industry wants. He said Heritage Bank decided to sponsor and attend the conference to understand the focus of the industry.
