BEVERLY HILLS, September 14, (THEWILL) – The Federal Ministry of Transport has commenced a review of employments, placements and promotions embarked upon by the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA) since 2010.

The committee, which is headed by the Ministry's Director of Human Resources, Mr. Lawal Ibrahim, is expected to determine whether employments, placement and promotions in NIMASA from 2010 to date conformed to the Civil Service procedures and were also in line with the Federal Character Principle, a NIMASA statement said, Monday.

Commenting on the exercise, the Acting Director General of NIMASA, Mr. Haruna Baba Jauro said the main objective of the exercise was to ensure proper staff placement in line with extant Federal Civil Service regulations.

According to the NIMASA helmsman, the exercise would aid the process of motivating the staff of the Agency and get the best out of them in the discharge of their onerous responsibilities.

β€œIn the end, the interest of the staff will be protected as the civil service rule, which emphasises fairness and equity, will be the guiding principle of the exercise. We are confident that staff morale will be boosted for enhanced productivity when the process is completed,” the DG said, according to the statement.

The nine-member committee, which has already commenced, sitting, has a deadline of two weeks to complete the exercise and submit its recommendations to the Permanent Secretary, Mallam Mohammed Bashar.

NIMASA has been going through restructuring since President Muhammadu Buhari sacked Mr. Patrick Ziakede Akpobolokemi as Director-General.
