Jamoh hails Supreme Court judgment in Inland Waterways jurisdiction

The Director General of NIMASA Dr. Bashir Jamoh, OFR, has described The Supreme Court Judgment reaffirming the Authority of the Federal Government through the Nigerian Inland Waterways Authority (NIWA) and the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA) to control activities in Nigerian Inland Waterways as a win-win judgment.Reacting via his official X handle, @JamohBashir, he noted that this should bring to an end issues 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 added that it would ultimately attract more investment from both local and international investors.

While noting that the Supreme Court ruling would go a long way in the Federal Government’s effort to exploit potentials of the over 10,000 Kilometers of inland waters in the country, Jamoh advised all parties concerned; particularly the State Governments; to embrace the judgment and collaborate with NIWA and NIMASA. This he said would help to better harness Nigeria’s maritime potentials for the benefit of all Nigerians.
