The Director-General, Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA), Dr Dakuku Peterside, has expressed his willingness to partner the Maritime Reporters Association of Nigeria (MARAN) and other relevant stakeholders in his commitment towards robust, efficient, responsive and qualitative maritime administration in the country.
In his letter dated April 6th, 2016 and addressed to the Acting President of MARAN, Funso Olojo, the NIMASA boss promised to engage the support of well meaning Nigerians and other stakeholders such as MARAN in his task of re-positioning the agency.
Peterside, who acknowledged the solidarity message sent to him by the association on his resumption of office, therefore solicited the support of MARAN in ensuring the success of his tenure.
“I assure you that I will partner with well meaning Nigerians and stakeholders like you (MARAN) in the discharge of my duties and responsibilities as Director-General/CEO and in the realization of the mandate of the agency.
“I count on your continuous support in accomplishing this very important national assignment”, the NIMASA helmsman declared.
The association, in its congratulatory letter to the NIMASA DG dated March 24th, 2016 and signed by Olojo, assured the new helmsman of its support in his task of achieving the core mandate of the agency.
The association has recognized the sterling qualities of Dr Peterside, especially his high cerebral qualities and political sagacity which it noted earned him the confidence of the federal government to bestow on him the task of rebuilding the apex maritime regulatory agency.
The association expressed implicit confidence in the ability of the new NIMASA DG to bring to bear on his new assignment his rich experience in public life and agility as a young administrator to better the lot of the industry.
