By Nuel Suji – The Director General of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA) Dakuku Peterside, has been elected President of the Association of African Maritime Administration (AAMA).


NIMASA Executive Director (ED, Finance and Administration) Bashir Jamoh announced this Friday at a Press Conference to round off the just concluded 3rd concluded AAMA annual Conference held in Abuja.

Mr. Jamoh who is also the LOC Chairman of the conference disclosed that with Dr. Peterside’s “unanimous” election, Nigeria would now serve as a rallying point for other African, Asian and European countries for the international Maritime administration.

He said the hosting right of the 2018 AAMA assemblage has been given to Egypt, while the provisional hosting right for the 2019 edition has been awarded to both Namibia and Scyhelle.

While Nigeria will occupy the AAMA Presidency seat for the next one year, Mr. Jamoh pointed out that the continental Maritime Association secretariat would remain in South Africa.

He stressed that AAMA is for all African countries, adding that countries that could not attend the just concluded conference sent apologies in the same regard.
