A FLASHBACK ON THE EARLY SHIPPING AND ITS FALL IN NIGERIA

                         
                              


INTRODUCTION:

The history of the Nigerian Shipping fleet dates back to the pre-colonial era when the colonial masters dominated almost every aspect of the country’s economic activities. Shipping was not spared as it was totally dominated by foreign shipping lines amongst which were Elder Dempster Lines Ltd. and Palm Line Ltd.

However, and in order to reduce the dominant role by the foreign shipping lines, the establishment of the Nigerian National Shipping Line (NNSL) was conceived. The conception for the establishment of the NNSL was borne out of government’s deliberate policy not only to reduce foreign dominance, participate in the invisible earning sector of the economy, but also as part of its economic independence from the colonial masters and the creation of the country’s image in Africa and the World.
