The Governing Board of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA) has approved the appointment of three new directors, Mr. Eric OJI, Mr. Dimowo Heaky and a former spokesman of the agency, Mr. Isichei Osamgbi.

Nigeria’s Alternate Permanent Representative at the International Maritime Organisation (IMO), Mr. Dirisu Abdulmumuni, was promoted to Deputy Director, alongside 61 others. 233 other staff were elevated to their next grade levels.

The promotions were ratified at a meeting of the Governing Board of the Agency held in Lagos.

Director-General of NIMASA, Dr. Bashir Jamoh, congratulated the promoted members of staff and charged them to remain committed to the agency’s vision of making Nigeria great through the sustainable harnessing of its huge maritime potential.

Jamoh stated, “We are committed to our promise to always motivate staff and give them the reason for hard work. The promotion process was rigorous but fair to all involved.

“Promotion is the reward for hard work and qualification for higher responsibilities. I implore the newly promoted staff to see their elevation as a call to more dedication.

“On our part as executive management, we will continue to ensure that staff are promoted as and when due so that they are motivated to give their best in the Agency’s drive to make maritime a key element in the country’s economic diversification agenda.”

The chairman of NIMASA’s Governing Board enjoined the newly promoted staff to be more dedicated to their duties, saying the promotions will come with more responsibilities.
