“Within the short period of his assumption of office as Acting D-G, he has done a lot to turn things around in NITT by mobilising the staff with support from the Governing Council toward repositioning the institute which are in tandem with the policy objectives of the present administration of taking the country to the next level.

“In the course of his service, he attended so many courses on transportation, across many Countries in Africa, Europe and Asia.

“He is a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport and a member of the National Council of the Institute as well as Fellow of the Institute of Transport Administration (FINSTA).

“In addition to visiting so many countries, Salih-Farah has led many teams of different segments of the Nigerian Transport and Logistics Industry to major transport and Logistics hubs in United Kingdom and Malaysia.
