Why on earth would the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA) claim to have effected the arrest of the 11 pirates arrested by the Nigerian Navy recently.
It is even more worrisome that the present Director General of the supposed apex maritime agency remaining latent since he came into power.
The DG could use the pandemic as an excuse not to be doing much but his colleagues in other maritime agencies have been seen doing and making statements for the development of the industry.
The Nigerian Shippers’ Council took it upon itself to make sure that freight forwarders accessed the port by providing buses and printing access cards for them.
It is not enough to donate money that is government money in the first place, the impact of the management is as well important.
Maritime stakeholders should not expect much from the present DG because the beginning is not prompting any significance in development of the industry.
Mind you, success or failure of NIMASA would go a long way to determine how well the industry can be a replacement for the already depleted oil industry.
Jamoh should stand up to his responsibilities and use his position to salvage the industry from going into comatose.
It is good for the executive to harmonise the tasks of the agency to build the country.
