Newly appointed Director General, Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA), Dr. Bashir Jamoh, on Tuesday assumed office with a pledge to engage more deeply industry stakeholders to come up with policies that would drive the maritime sector forward.
The NIMASA boss, who made the pledge on his assumption of office in Lagos shortly after taking over from Dakuku Peterside, also promised to consolidate on the achievements of his predecessor.
He said, “Since government is a continuum, we shall hit the ground running immediately. We shall study your handover notes diligently to ensure continuity of leadership for the sector,” he said.
Jamoh also thanked President Muhammadu Buhari for finding him worthy of the appointment to serve with a promise not to let the industry down.
