Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA) has been tasked on the need to send Marine Notices to Ship Masters, Agents, Ship Managers and Shipowners of vessels calling Nigerian ports and offshore terminals for operational guide to keep safe.
Marine engineer and former Director General of the Nigerian Shipowners Association (NISA), Nnajiuno Ogbuagu, at the weekend supported the mariners offshore who demanded a delayed boarding system that would keep shuttle tankers waiting for at least 14 days to ensure no cases of persons sick with the novel COVID-19.
