LAGOS AUGUST 11TH (NEWSRANGERS)-Stakeholders from the coastal and  riverine communities in Niger Delta region  have warned against the abrupt dismantling of Secure Anchorage Area SAA in Lagos being handled by a capable and competent indigenous company.

They said the Israeli government will never contract the security of their country’s waterways to a Nigerian firm or foreigners, and wondered why the Nigerian Ministry of Transportation contemplating on contracting the security of Nigeria watersway to an Israeli firm.

“Why do we always please foreigners to displease our people. We are very sure that our amiable President, Buhari will not support such actions by Ministry of Transportation putting the safety and security of our watersway in the hands of unknown foreigners. The President should  call the gladiators of the unpatriotic act to order”.

 “We are very comfortable with Ocean Marine Solutions Limited, which been effective in terms of delivery and community relations. We are proud sympathizers and supporters of the President Buhari’s committment toward  local content both in the agricultural, oil and gas sector”

” It was totally wrong for the Ministry of Transportation under  President Buhari’s administration contracting the security  of our waterways to an Israeli firm, with no knowledge of the terrain. It is like  hiring foreign mercenaries to fight in an unknown zone, this is contratry to President Buhari’s agenda and most effective policing anywhere in the world”.

“We are calling on  President Buhari to look into the Secure Anchorage Area and prevail on Ministry of Transportation,  Nigerian Port Authority NPA, and Nigerian Maritime Safety Administration NIMASA, and  the Nigerian Navy to correct this monumental error to dismantle the Anchorage”.
