Jamoh Lauds Supreme Court Judgement on Inland Waterway


Bashir Jamoh, director general of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA), has described the Supreme Court Judgement reaffirming the National Inland Waterways Authority (NIWA) and the NIMASA the regulators to control activities in Nigerian Inland Waterways as a win-win judgement.

Reacting via his official X handle, @JamohBashir, he said the judgement should bring to an end the issue of ambiguity and multiple taxation; as states will no longer levy investors, being a responsibility of the government at the federal level; thus, improving the ease of doing business in the maritime sector.

He said that it would ultimately attract more investment from both local and international investors.

While pointing out that the Supreme Court ruling will go a long way in the Federal Government’s effort to exploit the potential of the over 10,000 Kilometers of inland waters in the country, Jamoh advised all parties concerned particularly the State Governments; to embrace the judgement and collaborate with NIWA and NIMASA.

This, he said, will help to better harness Nigeria’s maritime potential for the benefit of all Nigerians.
