​Nigeria is a trading nation, with an economy that urgently needs to increase its foreign exchange supply through non-oil exports, yet, Ports reforms are notoriously difficult to implement.

This session will explore the challenges faced by Ports users, particularly exporters, in Nigeria, and our firsthand attempts at reforming the system in the last few years. We will share the actions and tools that were employed in the reform process, the outcomes and lessons learned. 

Dr. Jumoke Oduwole MFR will be joined remotely for this session by Dr. Titilola Akindeinde. Dr.  Akindeinde has over 20 years’ professional experience leading, managing, and advising PFM, tax, and macro fiscal programmes in the context of development countries. Titilola is currently the Executive Director, Local Government Revenue Initiative (LoGRI), an initiative of the International Centre for Tax and Development, based at the Munk School of Global Affairs and Public Policy where she leads the development of policy-relevant research, knowledge, expertise, and tools to support governments to raise more local government revenue more equitably and fairly. Throughout her career, Titilola has worked with governments at the highest levels in UK, Nigeria, Pakistan, Sierra Leone, Malawi and Zambia.
