President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated the Director General of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA), Dr. Dakuku Peterside, on his election as the new Chairman of the Association of African Maritime Administrators (AAMA) at the end of the Third Annual Conference of the continental organization in Abuja on Friday.
The President, in a statement by his  Special Adviser (Media & Publicity), Femi Adesina, noted that Peterside’s unanimous
election is not only a personal honour and affirmation of confidence in his ability to lead AAMA, but also places   Nigeria in a pivotal position to rally other maritime administrations in collaboration with the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) towards safer global maritime activities.
“President Buhari believes that given NIMASA’s encouraging performance under Dr. Peterside especially in the fight against sea piracy through inter-agency cooperation, he has no doubt that his new position provides him with an even bigger platform to forge ahead in doing the nation proud by meeting the objectives of AAMA,” the statement said.
The President, while wishing the new Chairman of AAMA a successful one-year tenure, expressed confidence that within this period, the Federal Government’s renewed focus on growing the Nigerian economy through increased maritime resources will be further enhanced.
