Nigerian-owned, Panama-flagged tanker

Can anyone explain to me why this would be?  I mean I understand why cruise ships in the states and other developed nations register in Liberia or Panama, but why in the world would a Nigerian ship have any advantage in flying a flag of convenience?

Africans held and ransomed by fellow Africans. Why does this sound horrifyingly familiar?

Now, as soon as the transaction fee is paid on the ransom, they'll wire the first 50 million. They just need a new minor account details...

Seriously. U.S. Debt Problem? Solved, just charge a nominal fee to issue the Letters of Marque to anyone with the cash to buy one.

We know where the pirates live and spend their money. We just don't have the balls to do anything about it.

Because it looks better to be associated with Panama than an African sh*thole?

Found on the intertubes:

"Registering a ship in Panama means that the ship is governed by the maritime rules of Panama rather than the ship owner's country. Ship owners do this because Panama has low taxes and fewer labour and safety regulations than most other countries. So ship owners can make their staff work longer hours in less safe environments, and therefore maximise their profits."
