” 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”.

” 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 contrary 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”.
