Chattam House, a world-leading policy institute based in London, has praised the efforts of Nigeria and its military in making the Gulf of Guinea safer for operations.

The Global think-tank gave the commendation on Wednesday in London during a meeting with the Nigeria Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed.


Who was on a working visit to London met with Dr Alex Vines,  Chattam House’s Managing Director,  Risk, Ethics and Resilience/Director, Africa Programme, and his team.

The global think-tanks also called on the Federal Government to take advantage of the decline in piracy in Gulf of Guinea to boost its blue economy.


The minister underscored the need for the Nigerian media to report the achievements of the administration rather than playing up the sensational negative news.

He assured that the administration would remain focused to sustain it’s reputation locally and internationally.


The Gulf of Guinea is an important shipping zone transporting oil and gas as well as goods to and from Africa and the rest of the world.


It accounts for about 4.5 million barrels of oil produced daily in Africa while Nigeria’s maritime environment constituted about 12 per cent of the Gulf of Guinea thus accounting for over 85 per cent of the total seaward trade with the rest of the world.
