The Nigerian Shippers’ Council has called for an urgent review of absolute Maritime Laws to maximize potentialities in the sector. Acting Executive Secretary of the Council, Mr. Hassan Bello made the call at the News Agency of Nigeria Forum in Abuja.
The Executive Secretary who said the laws establishing the Nation’s Maritime agencies are no longer in tune with the current realities noted that the sector has the potential of becoming the highest revenue earner in the Country.
Mr. Hassan Bello said the statutes establishing the agencies as public authorities did not recognize that they can be run by the private sector.
