The Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA) and the Nigeria Customs Service have agreed on modalities for seamless and timely delivery of the latter’s Deep Blue Project assets currently at the ports.
A statement by the NIMASA Assistant Director on Public Relations, Edward Osagie stated that the agreement was reached in a meeting between the Director General of NIMASA, Dr. Bashir Jamoh and Comptroller General of the Nigeria Customs Service, Hameed Ali, in Abuja on Thursday.
Quoting the CG of Customs, the statement reads, “because of the peculiarities of the urgent need of these assets, there is a need to find a common ground that would assist in the full deployment of these assets.”
While appreciating the Comptroller General for the efforts to clear the Deep Blue Project assets still at the ports, Jamoh urged the Customs to share information and capacity with the Agency to ensure successful implementation of the Deep Blue Project.
The NIMASA DG also shared information on the Modular Floating Dock with the Customs CG, describing the modular floating dock as a public asset to be managed by the Infrastructure Concession Regulatory Commission (ICRC).
He said, “The Infrastructure Concession Regulatory Commission (ICRC) is fully involved in the process to select a management partner for the Modular Floating Dockyard. We urge the Nigeria Customs to see and treat the asset as a national asset that should enjoy some concession in terms of duties.”
“When it becomes operational, hundreds of direct jobs will be created and thousands of indirect employments will also be created.”
