Wednesday, June 12, 2013

The United States of America government has issued a 90-day ultimatum to Nigeria to improve security in its ports and waterways or face a ban on ships from entering the country.

At the opening of a two day General Stakeholders Conference on "Reviving ISPS Code Implementation in Nigeria, Mr. Olugbenga Leke Oyewole, Senior Special Assistant  to the President on Maritime Services, told the Lagos conference that due to measures that were introduced after the September 2011 incident in United States, Nigeria cannot be exonerated  from the activities of terrorists, reports 'WorldStage'.

He assured that the country will revive its implementation of the International Ship and Port Facility Security code by August to secure ports and waterways against terrorism, piracy, smuggling and bunkering.

ISPS Code is the standard international framework through which Contracting Governments, Government Agencies, Local Authorities, Port and Ship industries can cooperate and be assessed in the global commitment to detect security threats in the maritime transportation sector.
