Lagos Deep Offshore Logistics (LADOL) has been rewarded for its commitment to local content.
At an event organised by the Petroleum Technology Association of Nigeria (PETAN) in Houston, Texas, United States, the organisation was commended for its “outstanding performance”.
LADOL has invested $500 million into building the only 100 per cent Nigerian private industrial free zone in West Africa.
Amy Jadesimi, managing director of LADOL, was one of the few chief executive officers honoured as lead speaker during one of the panel sessions.
LADOL free zone, which is located directly opposite Apapa Port, provides stevedoring, cargo handling and loading of goods services.
In a recent interview with BBC, Jadesimi said Nigeria had a lot to do in tackling graft and commended President Muhammadu Buhari for his efforts.
