PTML Donates New Toyota Hilux Van To NPA



The Ports and Terminal Multiservices Limited (PTML) has donated a brand new Toyota Hilux van to the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA), as part of efforts to cushion the effect of the destruction of its facility by hoodlums who hijacked the recent #EndSARS protest.

The Managing Director of PTML, Mr. Ascanio Russo, who handed over the keys of the vehicle to the Executive Director, Engineering and Technical Services of NPA, Prof. Idris Abubakar, shortly after assessing the level of damage done to the NPA headquarters building, condemned the attack on the agency.

The attack, he said, was, “senseless”, as it has nothing to do with the EndSARS protest.

While sympathising with the NPA management, Russo assured of PTML’s commitment to continue to work together and support the Authority.
He said, “We came here as PTML and Grimaldi to express our sympathy to the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA). This is on account of the horrendous attack they suffered three weeks ago when the headquarters was burnt.

“We came here to present this vehicle and this is a way for us to show our support to the Authority because we know that in times like this, it is our duty to support NPA, which has always been very supportive to us and to the whole port industry.

Responding, Prof Abubakar expressed appreciation to the management of PTML for the donation.

He called on other stakeholders to emulate PTML’s gesture by supporting the Authority.

He said, “PTML is the first to donate to the Authority as we have lost over 27 vehicles; over 300 computers, over 100 printers. Lots of photocopiers and other office equipment were stolen.” is an authoritative car blog in Nigeria.
