Nigeria, S/Africa, others to sign maritime pact – NIMASA DG

The Director General of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA), Dr. Dakuku Peterside has reinstated his Agency’s commitment to reposition the Nigerian maritime sector with its counterparts in S/Africa, Ghana and Kenya in order to make it viable and to compete favourably.

Peterside, who made this known in Lagos while receiving a delegation from the Gambian Maritime Administration, led by the Director-General, Mr. Mustapher Maroung, said that NIMASA would continue to drive regional collaborations in order for Africa to reap the benefits of the blue economy.

“We cannot walk this journey alone; partnership is crucial to achieving a robust economy. The beauty of partnership is that everyone brings their expertise to the table where ideas are shared and considered as a way forward to achieving a particular goal; it is not only here in Nigeria, it has become a global trend and this is what AAMA seeks to achieve for the continent,” the NIMASA boss stated.
