Lagos, April 16, 2023 – Dr Bashir Jamoh, the Director General of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA),  says promotion of staff to all positions in the Agency including director is based on merit.

Jamoh said in Lagos that the recent promotion of two of the Agency’s staff to directors, as part of the 510 newly promoted staff in NIMASA was approved by the Agency’s Board after a thorough and rigorous screening exercise.

“We are focused on rewarding hard work and commitment with incentives which include promotion of deserving staff on a regular basis in line with the Agency’s extant laws and the Public Service Rules. The promotion of Engineer Chris Amakulo and Mrs.Olubusola Obasanjo-Akande  as Directors in the Agency was approved by the Governing Board last week. 22 Assistant Directors were also promoted to Deputy Directors, while 486 other staff were elevated to their next grade levels. All promotions were merit based and we will sustain this practice which is in line with the Agency’s Core values,” Jamoh said.

The promotion exercise was the fourth since Jamoh assumed office in March 2020. (GBN)
