President Muhammadu Buhari has terminated the appointment of Mr. Patrick
Ziakede Akpobolokemi as Director-General of the Nigerian Maritime
Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA).
The termination of Mr. Akpobolokemi’s appointment takes immediate effect.
He is to hand over the management of NIMASA and all government property in
his possession to the most senior officer in the agency who will remain in
charge until a new Director-General is appointed.
Also, Buhari has approved the dissolution of the Governing Boards of
Federal Parastatals, Agencies and Institutions with effect from today,
July 16, 2015.
Until the boards are reconstituted, Chief Executive Officers of the
affected parastatals, agencies and institutions are to refer all matters
requiring the attention of their boards to the President, through the
Permanent Secretaries of their supervising ministries.
While the dissolution does not affect Federal Executive Bodies listed in
the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, it covers
administrative or technical committees and other similar organs
established by the now dissolved boards.
