SIFAX begins plan to digitize Ebute Ojo terminal
SIFAX Group said plans are at advanced stage to install modern IT infrastructure at its new Ebute Ojo Terminal in Ojo Local Council of Lagos State.
General Manager, IT, SIFAX Group, Kayode Ogunwole, who disclosed this during Nigerdock Nigeria Limited facility inspection visit to the Ebute-Ojo terminal, said the company has begun the installation of modern IT infrastructure such as wireless networks, LED display boards and many more facilities that will make the terminal more comfortable for its clients.
Nigerdock’s delegation led by Facility Manager, Juan Gonzalez, expressed absolute satisfaction with the facilities at the terminal and the excellent condition of the ferries.
The ferry service is currently available on Ebute-Ojo-Apapa and Mile 2 – Apapa routes. SIFAX ferries provide daily service for Nigerdock staff to and fro Apapa on a daily basis.
Gonzalez said: “We came here to do an inspection of the SIFAX Ebute Ojo jetty facility and also the ferries. The boats were previously inspected by our team made up of safety, operations and human resource officers. During our inspection today, we have found compliance with all regulations, capacities and status of the SIFAX ferry which is in a wonderful operational state. We certify the boats very safe enough for all our personnel and operations. The ferry conveys our staff from the office to different jetties.
Senior Supervisor, Marine Services, Isaiah Emehweke, said: “With the SIFAX ferry service operations, stress will be taken off the highway. I didn’t expect to see anything less than the standard I have seen here today because the consultant heading the SIFAX ferry terminal, Captain Ibrahim Olugbade, is a mariner of repute with proven track records both in Nigeria and overseas. None of the safety equipment is outdated, they all function very well,” he said.
Felix Omojoye, Assistant Manager, SIFAX Ebute-Ojo jetty thanked the team for their kind words and assured that the terminal would not rest on its oars but will continue to do more to improve on the services it offers.
