Jamoh bows out of NIMASA, hands over to Chudi Offodile


The tenure of Bashir Jamoh as the Director General of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA) formally came to an end on Sunday as exclusively reported by SHIPS & PORTS last week.

The erstwhile NIMASA Director General formally handed over the reigns of office to the agency’s Executive Director, Finance and Administration, Chudi Offodile.

During the handover ceremony at NIMASA Towers in Victoria Island, Jamoh expressed gratitude to the Federal Government for giving him the opportunity to serve in the capacity as Director General and urged the next leadership of the agency to consolidate on the gains of the past four years.

“I wish to express gratitude to Almighty Allah and the Federal Government for the privilege given me to serve Nigeria in this capacity, as I count myself a privileged Nigerian to have occupied this position, while also contributing my quota to the Nigerian maritime sector.

Let me also use this opportunity to assure the staff of the agency that wherever I am, I will still remain a part of this family; a place I have spent the active 30 years of my life,” Jamoh said.

He thanked the staff of the agency for their cooperation and their professionalism during his tenure.

On his part, the acting NIMASA Director-General, Chudi Offodile said, “I want to express my gratitude to the outgoing DG for being a guide to me upon assumption of office as the Executive Director, Finance & Administration four years ago. The industry will continue to call on you for your expertise.”
