FG Has Re­po­si­tioned NIMASA for Eco­nomic Growth, Says SGF

THISDAY - - NEWS EXTRA -

The Sec­re­tary to the Gov­ern­ment of the Fed­er­a­tion (SGF), Mr. Boss Mustapha, said the fed­eral gov­ern­ment has re­po­si­tioned the Nige­rian Mar­itime Ad­min­is­tra­tion and Safety Agency (NIMASA) for eco­nomic growth.

As a re­sult, he said the Nige­rian mar­itime in­dus­try had be­come more at­trac­tive to for­eign in­vestors un­der the watch of the cur­rent gov­ern­ment.

Mustapha, ac­cord­ing to a state­ment yes­ter­day by NIMASA’s Head of Cor­po­rate Com­mu­ni­ca­tions, Isichei Osamgbi, said this at the NIMASA Cor­po­rate Din­ner and Merit Awards held at Eko Ho­tels and Suites, Vic­to­ria Is­land.

The SGF was said to have been rep­re­sented by the Min­is­ter of Bud­get, Se­na­tor Udo Udoma.

He said, “The DG and his team and the board are do­ing well in NIMASA. They have trans­formed the or­gan­i­sa­tion. I will also like to con­grat­u­late the Min­is­ter of Trans­porta­tion be­cause it is through his guid­ance and su­per­vi­sion that all these trans­for­ma­tions have taken place. He is an ac­tion man, some­body that makes things hap­pen.”

In his ad­dress, the Direc­torGen­eral of NIMASA, Dr. Dakuku Peter­side, said the mar­itime in­dus­try re­mained the back­bone of in­ter­na­tional trade and that the Nige­rian mar­itime sec­tor had made re­mark­able achieve­ments in the last two years.
