NIMASA pledges to tackle criminality
THE Acting Director General of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA), Haruna Baba Jauro has reiterated the commitment of the agency to stamp out the activities of unscrupulous elements “who are bent on disrupting the peace in its areas of operation”.
Speaking as a special guest of honour at the opening ceremony of the Nigerian Army School of Public Relations and Information (NASPRI) media workshop in Lagos, the DG said NIMASA had committed itself to ensuring the success of the working agreements with the Nigerian military in order to keep the Nigerian maritime environment safe from criminal activities.
He commended the Nigerian military for its dogged war against insurgency, explaining that he had a first-hand experience of the security challenges of the northeast region being an indigene of Yobe State who had lived in the Maiduguri/Damaturu axis since 1985 until 2012 when he took up the NIMASA assignment.
A press statement issued by NIMASA’s head of Media, Hajia Lami Tumaka quoted the DG as saying “We, the civilian populace, our hearts are now better at peace when we noticed the renewed commitment and motivation demonstrated by our armed forces. Peace is needed for every activity to progress. We raise our thumps up for our military seeing what is happening. And we want to say ‘kudos’ to you.”
The Commandant of NASPRI, Colonel John Agim, according to the statement, commended the NIMASA helmsman for his passion, dedication to duty and love for the military and the country.
He revealed that his communication with the NIMASA DG was purely official having not met him before the event, “yet he accepted to grace the occasion despite his tight schedules.”
