New book to critique Buhari’s footprint in maritime sector
A new book titled: “Footprints of President Muhammadu Buhari in the Maritime Sector,” will be presented to the public on February 8, 2019, at Eko Hotel & Suites, Lagos.
The book to be unveiled by the Shipping Correspondents Association of Nigeria (SCAN) would be detailing the performance of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration in the maritime industry.
A statement jointly signed by the President of SCAN, Yusuf Babalola, and Chairman, Book Presentation Committee, Shulammite ‘Foyeku, said the book highlights some of the bold measures taken by the present administration to address the numerous challenges and infrastructural deficits facing the sector, and how these efforts have helped in repositioning the nation’s maritime sector to grow the economy.
It stated: “Over the decades, the Nigerian maritime sector has been beset with the challenges of both soft and hard infrastructure deficits.
“To make the port and the maritime domain a hub of maritime activities, the present federal government led by Buhari has introduced the policy of ease of doing business in the port.
“It has also embarked on the rehabilitation of Wharf Road, among others, which had been a nightmare to port users over the years; and procured speed patrol boats for the Nigerian Navy to combat oil thefts and other maritime crimes.”
