Maritime workers demand import policy review to boost revenue

By Godfrey Bivbere & Favour Elioku

With the dwindling revenue from the oil and gas sector as a result of the activities of militants in the Niger Delta region, the Maritime Workers Union of Nigeria, MWUN yesterday, in Lagos, called on the Federal Government to review its import policy to increase the falling income generated from the industry.

Speaking at the opening ceremony at a two-day workshop, the National President of MWUN, Tony Nted, said that the current policy was having adverse effect on operators in the sector.

Nted explained that the current situation was also affecting dockworkers’ income as the monthly take home pay was based on the volume of work done at the ports.
