Dredging ‘ll improve security in waterways – CNS

Chief of Naval Staff (CNS) Vice Admiral IE Ibas, has said that for the Nigerian Navy to effectively carry out her duties there was the need to improved channel conservancy in Nigeria waters through dredging and buoyage.
He said this in Abuja when he received the Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer of Nigeria Liquefied Natural Gas Limited, Mr Tony Attah paid him a courtesy visit in his office.
He noted that the Escravos channel had recorded several grounding of ships in the last few months and was optimistic that this would be addressed by the Nigerian Ports Authority.
He said on assumption of duty as the CNS he emphasized the increased use of surveillance systems as well as Maritime Domain Awareness (MDA) infrastructure in support of Nigerian Navy’s operations which has enormously enhanced Nigeria’s maritime security architecture.
In his remarks, Attah commended the Navy for assisting the NLNG’s operations in Bonny and along the approaches to Bonny Channel.
