The Patriots Alliance (TPA), profoundly commend President Muhammadu Buhari, for appointing Dakuku Adol Peterside, PhD, as the Director General of Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA). By this act, Mr. President has once again proved that his administration is one which is focused on excellence and productivity.

Dakuku, who is described by many as the symbol of peace and development in Rivers State, is also a professional management expert, with long years of public service experience. The bundle of intellect which he demonstrated while serving as Rivers Commissioner of Works and Chairman, House (House of Representatives) Committee on Petroleum Resources – Downstream, will be infused into the hitherto withered soul of NIMASA.

As Patriots, we expect Dr. Dakuku to carry out his functions as DG NIMASA with the change mantra in mind. At a time when crude oil price is at an all time low, NIMASA which is a high revenue generating body must fill in the gap to reflate Nigeria's weakened economy. We are also optimistic, knowing that the new DG, being a man of high standards, will promote best practices in terms of safety, cabotage, security et al in NIMASA.

Finally, we believe that DAP (like he is fondly called by his teeming supporters), will not forget the youths of Nigeria in the areas of employment and empowerment. With Dakuku Peterside as DG NIMASA, we dare say that the days of cash for job in the maritime sector are long gone for good.
