In a move to fortify and enhance cooperation between the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA) and the Nigerian Navy, Dr. Bashir Jamoh OFR, Director-General of NIMASA, embarked on a working visit to Vice Admiral E I Ogala, the Chief of Naval Staff.

The primary aim of this visit was to bolster the existing relationship between the two entities, fostering mutual growth within the Nigerian maritime industry. Central to their discussions was the alignment of strategies to support President Bola Ahmed Tinubu GCFR’s vision of establishing a Marine and Blue Economy Ministry.

A critical focus during their deliberations was the pervasive issue of illegal Unreported and Unregulated (IUU) Fishing. Both parties engaged in in-depth conversations, exploring innovative avenues to combat this challenge effectively. Their concerted efforts aim to ensure that Nigerians reap the full benefits of the abundant natural resources within the maritime industry.

The collaborative efforts between NIMASA and the Nigerian Navy signify a united front in addressing critical maritime concerns. Through their commitment to this partnership, they seek to streamline operations, tackle illicit activities, and promote sustainable practices within Nigeria’s maritime domain.
