    Mishaps: NIWA boss warns boat operators against night operations

    The National Inland Waterways Authority (NIWA) has warned boat operators to desist from transporting passengers beyond 7.00 p.

    m. to avoid frequent boat mishaps on the waterways.

    The Managing Director of the authority, Dr George Moghalu, issued the warning at a media interactive session with transportation correspondents in Lagos on Friday.

    The News Agency of Nigeria reports that no fewer than 13 more bodies have been recovered from the ill-fated boat sailing from Mile 2 to Ibeshe, a suburb of Lagos, on Saturday, bringing the total dead bodies recovered to 17.The National Emergency Management Agency, NEMA, Zonal Coordinator, South-West, Mr Ibrahim Farinloye, had said illegal operators are rendering services after the end of official hours of 7:00pm, thereby violating the Inland Waterway operations rules.

    Moghalu said the authority had constituted waterways task force to arrest any boat operators operating beyond the stipulated time.

    The NIWA boss said the Task Force comprised National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), Lagos Sate Waterways Authority (LASWA), barge operators, Maritime Workers Union of Nigeria and the Marine Police.

    He explained that studies by the authority had shown that these boat accidents occur either at night or early in the morning adding that the practice must stop.

    He stated: ‘‘That is part of the regulation we are putting in place, We are more concern about peoples’ lives,  check the history of accidents even in ferries.

    “You find out that over 90 per cent of accident happens in the early hours of the morning or in the night and most of these vessels do not have navigational lights.

    “On our own parts, we are laying buoys, trying to put navigational aids on the waterways but at the same time, we are appealing to residents in the Riverine communities to ensure the safety of these navigational equipment.

    “We have come to see that vandals, thieves destroy these navigational equipment and make away with them,” he said.

    Moghalu said the authority would sanction offenders of laws regulating the use of the waterways.

    According to him, the Task Force has the mandate to arrest people, sanction people and prosecute people, it is no more business as usual.

    There must be sanity on our waterways.

    He, however, said that NIWA would continue to encourage boat operators to do the right thing and reduce the incessant boat mishap on waterways by adhering to safety regulations as stipulated by it.

    NEMA recovers 13 more bodies from Lagos boat accident

    The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) says that 13 more bodies have been recovered from the ill-fated boat sailing from Mile 2 to Ibeshe, a suburb of Lagos, on Saturday.

    The Zone Coordinator, South-West, NEMA, Mr Ibrahim Farinloye, made the disclosure in a statement on Sunday in Lagos.

    Farinloye said that a total of 17 bodies had been recovered so far from the recovery operations of the missing victims.

    “Late yesterday night, two more bodies were recovered in addition to the two earlier recovered in the morning.

    “With this, it has become a total of 17 bodies recovered,” he said.

    Farinloye told the News Agency of Nigeria in an interview that search and rescue operations had ended

    The coordinator said that illegal boat operators plying the waterways beyond the stipulated official hours led to these avoidable deaths.

    He said that the act was a gross violation of the regulations of the waterways guidelines for operators.

    “It was revealed that the regulatory bodies have tried to stamp out illegal operations of small boat operators who hardly use life jackets after official hours.

    “But they do not heed to regulations put in place to stop them.

    “It was also observed that wooden boats are not permitted to be used as passenger boat.

    “But it is only at this odd hour that illegal operators always put the lives of unsuspecting passengers at risk,’’ Farinloye said.

    He said that efforts were on to address the gaps with all stakeholders such as the Nigerian Navy’s Special Boat Service, the Association of Operators of Nigeria and the Lagos State Waterways Authority (LASWA), among others.

    Capsizing: Stakeholders in Lagos, South-South call for continuous training, provision of facilities – a survey

    In view of the recent boat capsizing in some states, stakeholders and operators in the country’s waterways are calling for continuous training of boat captains to curb boat mishaps.
    The News Agency of Nigeria reports that some coastal states been experiencing boat capsizing recently due to lack of maintenance, irregular removal of weeds, wrecks and other impediments from the waterways.
    Also lack of proper dredging and channelization of waterways and non-implementation of waterways codes are some other causes of boat capsizing.
    Others attributed boat capsizing to perennial flooding, which mostly affect states such as Lagos, Kogi, Niger, Rivers, Oron in Akwa-Ibom, Kebbi and Benue.
    In Lagos, the National Inland Waterways Authority (NIWA) and the Lagos State Waterways Authority (LASWA) have renewed their commitment to end waterways mishaps in the state.
    The Lagos Area Manager, NIWA, Mrs Sarat Braimoh, said that continuous training of boat captains and licensing them to drive professionally would curb waterways mishaps in the state
    Braimoh said that NIWA was already engaging boat and ferry captains in training on quarterly basis, particularly in the southern parts of the country.
    “We are about commencing training for ferries and boats captain in the northern parts. We also hold regular safety awareness and sensitisation campaigns across parts of the country.
    “NIWA also carries out regular security and compliance patrols on the waterways also our authority has established nine Search and Rescue stations.
    “Our authority will establish more Search and Rescue stations this year, across various locations in Lagos, Lokoja, Port Harcourt, Yauri, New Bussa, just to mention a few.
    “These stations are intended, not only to prevent but to respond immediately and provide timely rescue.’’
    Braimoh said that collaboration with NiMET was very key in sharing information as to the vagaries of the weather which would help prevent sailing in bad weather.
    Also speaking, the General Manager, Lagos State Waterways Authority (LASWA), Mr Oluwadamilola Emmanuel said that continuous removal of wrecks and impediments from the waterways would stem boat capsizing in Lagos.
    Emmanuel explained that LASWA usually engaged boat and ferry captains as well as deckhands in quality training and retraining with proper dredging, channelisation of waterways routes, implementation of the waterways safety code.
    The LASWA chief said that the agency also engaged in the continuous clearing of water hyacinth in the Lagos waterways.
    Emmanuel said that fixed or handheld GPS, Port and Seaboard lights as well as Boat Radar would assist boat operators to enable them navigate efficiently on the waters.
    The general manager said that it was possible for LASWA to collaborate with Nigerian Meteorological Agency to create awareness on the weather to guide operators against flooding and boat capsizing.
    “The Lagos State Government is engaging both government and local boat builders in training in line with industry best practices,” he said.
    He said agency would sanction and prosecute owners of abandoned logs, wrecks, fishing nets and impediments.
    Emmanuel said there were also sanctions for dredging operators who do not totally submerge their dredging pipes, which in turn causes boat capsizing.
    “To address the problem of boat capsizing, LASWA is engaging in constant wreck and impediment removal across the waterways in the state.
    “LASWA is also involved in Manual and Equipment Clearing of Water hyacinth workshop, sensitisation and training of captains.
    “Others are the deckhand on reporting, dredging and channelization of waterways routes.”
    Emmanuel said it had also established Search and Rescue units with well-trained officers and community sensitisation programmes to enlighten riverine residents on the dangers of dumping refuse and fishing nets on the waterways.
    In the South-South, boat operators have appealed to State governments in the zone to ensure periodic evacuation of water hyacinths on the water channels to reduce incidents of boat capsizing.
    They urged the state governments to constitute bodies to carry out the task of clearing the channels of debris of sunk boats, engines and metals to prevent boat mishaps.
    The Chairman of Godspower Jetty in Warri, Delta, Mr Timi Cletus said that some boat drivers lost control of their vessels while trying to navigate waters covered by water hyacinths and this often resulted in mishaps.
    “The issue of water hyacinths is a major challenge in our business.
    “It’s a challenge in the sense that some boat drivers try to avoid the hyacinths and in the process lose control or collide with objects,” he said.
    Another boat operator, Mr Temisan Omatseye urged the state government to assist in the enforcement of rules and regulations guiding water transportation.
    “Some of us do not obey the rules guiding boat business. They drive recklessly.
    “There should also be periodic reorientation of boat drivers by the state government and the National Inland Waterways Authority (NIWA) on need to avoid recklessness,” said.
    Also, Mr Ezekiel Opukeme, a resident, urged the state government to provide boat operators with enough safety jackets to save lives of passengers and crew in case of mishaps.
    A respondent in Port Harcourt, Rivers, Mr Ebi Theo said government was not concerned about the plight of boat operators.
    He urged government to strengthen synergy with subsectors in the maritime industry to prevent boat mishaps through training, certification, provision of safety equipment and sanitation on the waterways.
    “Debris of sunk boats, engines and metals could also be disastrous in event of collusion.
    “Government should supervise relevant authorities handling sanitation on our right of ways to enhance free navigation,” he said.
    A traditional leader in Asarama, a riverside community in Rivers, Chief Asuk-Okpon, suggested weekly orientation programme for boat drivers by the maritime authority.
    Asuk-Okpon said such programmes would enable them to understand peculiarities in weather conditions within stipulated time.
    “Drivers should know that during rainy season, especially there is need for collaboration with the Nigerian Meteorological Agency (NIMET) on weather reports.
    “Sadly, boat operators here have yet to embrace technology in their operations; they are still using local and crude methods thereby exposing passengers to avoidable accidents,” he said.
    In Yenagoa, Bayelsa, another boat operator Mr Ebimie Tonye, said boat capsized most times because of over loading, presence of debris on waterways and night travel.
    Tonye said that capsizing and falling over board could be minimised if boat operators adhered to maritime regulations.
    He called on government to ensure periodic clearing of water channels to minimise boat mishaps and loss of lives.
    In his part, the Marine Transport Chairman, Nembe, Mr Ebinyo Alagoa, also identified over speeding as one of the causes of boat mishaps, and cautioned against it to prevent such ugly occurrences.Mrs Eunice Ezeoke, President, Women’s International Shipping and Trading Association (WISTA) called for proper regulation of the water transport business to stem the recurring boat capsizing in the country.
    Ezeoke said “for one to operate passenger boat or ferry, one must be certified, there must be proper training and certification and certification should not be just a one-off thing.’’
    “This training can be done yearly to ensure that the operator still remember what its doing and operate with standard
    “The regulatory body must always inspect the boat, its engine and others to make sure the craft was in good shape.
    “There must be regular maintenance, proper and working lifejacket for passengers and two, three minutes talk as done with the boat in case of issues arising on what needs to be done should be instilled,” she said.
    Rev. Jonathan Nicole, a shipper and maritime stakeholder urged the regulating authority for water transportation to ensure standards were being observed in the business.
    Nicole pointed out that the boats that some of the operators were using were not fit for human transportation leading to some boat capsizing.

    Sanwo-Olu inaugurates tribunal on collapsed Ikoyi building

    Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Thursday inaugurated members of the tribunal of inquiry to investigate the causes of the collapse of the 21-story building on Gerrard Road, Ikoyi.

    Sanwo-Olu also signed a decree legitimizing the composition of the panel and authorizing it to invite or convene any person and organization useful for the investigation.

    Speaking at the inauguration held at Ikoyi, the building of the Lagos State Waterways Authority (LASWA), he said the state government would unravel and would attack the root cause of what had happened.

    “So that indeed, we can all really learn from this very unfortunate incident and we can all be a part of history and make sure that we can live in a safe and secure environment,” said Sanwo-Olu.

    He said the panel's duty would begin immediately and that they were to report within 30 days, while urging members to perform their duties without fear or favor.

    The tribunal members drawn from the private sector included the president of the Nigerian Institute of Planners (NITP), Mr. Toyin Ayinde (chair), while Ekundayo Onajobi, a lawyer in a private law firm, is the secretary.

    The other members of the panel are a structural engineer, Dr Akintilo Adeleke; an architect, Yinka Ogundairo; representative of the Institute of Builders, Mr. Godfrey O. Godfrey, and Ms. Bunmi Ibrahim, lawyer in real estate law.

    The Governor of Lagos State, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu (4th from left), flanked by Dr Obafemi Hamzat (3rd from left); The President of the Ikoyi Building Collapse Inquiry Tribunal, Mr. Toyin Ayinde (4th from right) and other Tribunal members at their inauguration at the LASWA building, Ikoyi, Thursday, November 4, 2021

    Sanwo-Olu said the public deserved to know what was wrong, adding that although the panel's work would not bring back the lives lost, but help prevent such a tragic event from happening again.

    “We are gathered here to perform a sad but necessary duty, which is the inauguration of a six-member commission of inquiry into the 21-story building collapse at Gerrard Road, Ikoyi, on Monday.

    “It is a solemn moment for me personally, but it is an important mission. Indeed, the next generation will not forgive us if we do not do the right thing about this incident.

    "Lagosians and the world will watch and wait impatiently, in the hope that the immediate and distant causes of this tragedy will be discovered," he said.

    Sanwo-Olu identified with the distraught families of the victims trapped under the collapsed structure, expressing belief that the outcome of the investigation would ease their pain and concern.

    He said the members' oath gave them the proper privileges of government powers to conduct an independent investigation without fear, favor, interference and restrictions.

    The governor urged the members of the tribunal to bring their expertise and professionalism to unravel the offenses that brought down the building.

    “What this tribunal does over the next few weeks will have important implications for building safety and for emergency response, not only in Lagos, but across the country.

    "It will also go a long way in ensuring that the families of the innocent victims of this preventable tragedy experience some kind of closure and get justice," Sanwo-Olu said.

    Giving the insurance vote, Ayinde said Lagos was in its "dark period" given the death toll at the site of the collapsed building.

    He is committed on behalf of the members to discharge his duty with all the sense of responsibility and with respect for ethics.

    “We accept with complete freedom and humility the important mission that the State has entrusted to us. We will move forward with a dedicated sense of responsibility.

    “This exercise can only make the expected difference if we all agree to value Nigerian life.

    “As members, we promise to be guided, we will chart a new course that will ensure the safety of the lives of Nigerian citizens,” Ayinde said.
