Abstract: The purpose of this study is to critically evaluate the effectiveness of the Cabotage Act 2003 on Nigerian maritime administration. The paper relied solely on data gathered from secondary sources. This study contends that, one, the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA) institutional incapacity to monitor compliance affects adversely the enforcement of the Cabotage Act 2003 in the Nigerian coastal and inland shipping, and two, the inability of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA) to bridge capacity gap results to poor compliance with the Cabotage Act 2003 in the Nigerian coastal and inland shipping. Thus, the paper concludes that the character of the Nigerian state has adversely affected the capacity of the NIMASA to monitor and enforce the Cabotage Act 2003 as well as its ability to bridge capacity gap in the maritime industry leading to poor compliance.
