The operations of the contract includes the procurement of security equipment, training of the country’s security operatives, specifically, the Navy, to tackle waterways crimes.

Ameachi had confirmed the commencement of the project in Lagos, during the 2017 World Maritime Day, which had the theme, ‘Connecting Ships, Ports and People.’

The minister gave details, “When you see the equipment on the waterways, people will know they are safe and secured. Mr. President has kindly approved that, and that is being done through the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency.”
