0 35

Stakeholders in the nation’s maritime industry claim that local shipowners are suffering as a result of Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation Limited’s reliance on foreign ships to lift petroleum products.

Emmanuel Ilori, a member of the Nigerian Indigenous Shipowners Association, claimed that the NNPCL’s unfavorable cargo policy was to blame for the large number of Nigerian ships that were clogging the nation’s waterways.

The number of  Nigerian vessels littering the waters just because of the NNPC cargo carrying policy. The Nigerian shipowners were not being favourably treated because foreign shipowners were taking over their trade, adding that he believed in Nigerian cargoes should be handled by local ships.

Punch.
