4000 Vessels, 72,000 Seafarers Visit Nigerian Ports Annually – NPA

Speaking in Lagos, at the commissioning of the Mission to Seafarers (MTS) centre in Lagos, the managing director of NPA, Mohammed Bello-Koko, said a minimum of 6,000 Seafarers visit the country’s seaports every month.

LEADERSHIP reports that with 6,000 Seafarers’ visiting every month, Nigeria seaports received over 72,000 seafarers annually.


According to Bello-Koko, it has become expedient that the authority intensify collaborations with global institutions like the MTS to encourage Shore Leave and Crew Change and to reap the benefits for coastal tourism.


He said, “the partnership with the Mission to Seafarers and consequent development of this Seafarers Centre, we are gathered here to commission, is a testament of relentless commitment to advancing the fortunes of maritime trade and unleashing fresh opportunities for growth and prosperity inherent in Nigeria’s blue economy.
