Cabotage Law In Nigeria

It has long been established that Nigeria’s maritime sector has the potential of contributing greatly to improving the Nigerian economy through her involvement in cargo reservation, carriage of both wet and dry cargo and passengers. It is almost impossible for Nigeria however to attain a world class shipping status if she cannot dominate her own Water ways. It is no wonder that pioneer campaigners for Cabotage in the Country thought it fit to ensure that appropriate laws were put in place to enable Nigeria domination as a stepping stone to benefitting immensely from the maritime markets through subsequent consolidated and deliberate strategies. Nine years down the lane of the enactment of the Coastal and Inland Shipping Act, the excitement and shouts of victory that heralded its passage into law seem to be a distant memory, with very sparse literature on the subject, owing to the fact that nothing has seemingly changed since the enactment of the law.
