Director-General of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency NIMASA, Dakuku Peterside, has said that the economic programme of the President Muhammadu Buhari administration is not only succeeding, but it is also reliable.

Dakuku stated this at the seventh edition of the Pan African International Recognition Awards/Annual Discourse held in Accra, Ghana.

The Director-General’s remarks followed the recognition of NIMASA as the “Most Reliable Government Organisation of the Year” at the occasion.


Organisers of the annual awards, Pan African International magazine, said NIMASA was recognised for “its giant achievements in the maritime sector, locally and globally.”

The theme of this year’s event was, “Driving Growth and Sustainable Economic Development through Good Governance – Improving Structures and Policies in Africa.”

It was a forum to showcase and honour leaders, organisations, and individuals who had shown commitment to the development of the continent.
