CABOTAGE ACT NIGERIA PDF

The Guardian Lagos By Sulaimon Salau When the Coastal and Inland Shipping, otherwise known as Cabotage Act was conceptualised in , stakeholders in the maritime industry were agog that the regulation would herald a new dawn in the domestic shipping business and particularly empower indigenous operators to own ships and operate without intimidation from their foreign counterpart, but 16 years after, the implementation has become a herculean task for the regulator. Several enlightenment, orientation, persuasion and threats appears to have fallen off the ears of the violators of the act, while the domestic shipping operators continued to groan under an unpalatable operating environment dominated by foreign shipping firms. The vessel has since been released after about 10 days detention. But as the dust settles, the lesson for stakeholders cannot be lost.

CABOTAGE LAW AND IT’S BENEFIT TO THE ECONOMY IN NIGERIA

It also prayed the court to say whether on a proper interpretation of the Cabotage Act — particularly sections 2, 5 and 22 5 — drilling rigs fall within the definition of vessel under the Coastal and Inland Shipping Cabotage Act. Counsel for the Plaintiff argued that drilling operations were simply limited to oil production and this had no relation to the carriage of goods and passengers within Nigerian waters, which had been defined as coastal trade and cabotage under s 2 of the Act. The Plaintiff further argued that s 22 5 of the Act expressly included certain vessels that were eligible for cabotage registration under the Act. Akinyeye further argued that the nature and functions of The West Capella satisfied the three elements required to be fulfilled under s 2 of the Act for the purpose of classifying an oil rig as a vessel. It was also argued that The West Capella was a type of oil rig known as a drillship and that this fact ought to be taken into joint consideration with the provisions of the Admiralty Jurisdiction Act, NIMASA act, and Merchant Shipping Act, which all contained provisions defining an oil rig as a ship. But the court considered the provisions of the Admiralty Jurisdiction Act and Interpretation Act and found that an oil rig was defined as a ship and so hold.
