Deep Blue Project: FEC Approves ₦6.3bn Contracts For Waterways Surveillance by BeeBeeOoh(m): 11:41pm On Nov 24
The federal executive council (FEC) has approved the award of a contract worth N6.3 billion for waterways surveillance under the Deep Blue project.

The Deep blue project is also known as the Integrated National Security and Waterways Protection Infrastructure project.

It is based on a maritime analytics system, providing comprehensive monitoring and an exclusive economic zone. The project will enable both the protection of the country from illegal and piracy activities and the protection of the country’s natural resources and assets.

Rotimi Amaechi, minister of transportation, disclosed this on Wednesday while briefing state house correspondents after the FEC meeting.

The meeting was presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari at the presidential villa, Abuja.

In June, Buhari flagged off the project — a collaboration between the transport ministry and the ministry of defence.

Amaechi said he presented a memo to the cabinet to approve the award of the contract.

He said that the contract was for the provision of training logistics, operational equipment, and maintenance support for the government under the Integrated National Surveillance and Waterways Protection Solution Infrastructure in Nigeria.

“This is also what we call the Deep Blue Project. That’s the project that the president launched some months ago, around May or June,” he said.

“The contract was awarded at N6,347,967,644.21, inclusive of 7.5% VAT for a period of two years. It’s also important to say that the cabinet was briefed that there’s huge improvement in the security on our waterways now and we hope that it will continue as we progress.”

Well, from antecedents I've come to see Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi as one of the few politicians in the present Federal administration that can get things done, either right or in the right direction.

For this project, Amaechi once said FG had acquired armoured vehicles for coastal patrol, two special mission vessels, fast interceptor boats and special mission aircraft for surveillance. And that the deep blue project will bring an end to the some of the surveillance contracts given to individuals and ex militants in the region.

Sincerely, I hope it works. It's not about the technology alone. We could have all the pirates fighting ammunition and still have collaborators in the navy and nimasa. Most times initiatives fail in Nigeria because of saboteurs who are living off a failed system

Was the contract awarded to a company? .... or funds to equip the Navy? They didn’t mention this in the report.

Congratulations to Ameachi.
Buhari has finally decided to compensate you after he connived with Senates not to approve this contract in 2018.
