The Director General of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA) Dr. Bashir Jamoh has commended the Nigerian Navy for its continued support to the agency over the years.

Jamoh, who gave the commendation when he met with the Admiral Superintendent of the Naval Dockyard Limited, Rear Admiral Kohath Levi on a working visit, particularly appreciated the Nigerian Navy for hosting and securing the agency’s floating dock since its arrival in the country more than three years ago.

“We appreciate the Nigerian Navy for making available its facility for the floating dockyard since arriving Nigeria. This has ensured absolute security of this facility and as we all can see, the dockyard is in good shape,” he said. 

Rear Admiral Kohath Levi assured that the Nigerian Navy would continue to support the agency, bearing in mind that safeguarding the Nigerian territorial waters is a collective responsibility of all stakeholders.

The NIMASA floating dock, acquired at the princely sum of about N50 billion, has been idle since it was acquired by the agency. 

NIMASA said the Federal Government recently gave approval for the Ministry of Transportation to deploy the floating dock on a public-private partnership basis.
