Mr Haruna Baba
Jauro on Monday formally took over from Mr Calistus Nwabueze Obi as the Acting
Director General/Chief Executive Officer of the Nigerian Maritime
Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA).

 A statement by
the Deputy Director/Head of Public Relations, Mr Isichei Osamgbi, disclosed that
the handover ceremony took place at the Agency’s office in Lagos.
The statement
said Obi pledged his support for Jauro and urged other staff of the agency to
support the new Acting Director General also.
“Obi assured that the excellent working
relationship between him and the new Acting DG would continue in order to lift
the Agency to greater heights,” the statement read partly.
According to the
statement, Jauro expressed gratitude to President Muhammadu Buhari for the
opportunity given him to serve the nation in his new capacity.
 He thanked staff of NIMASA for their
commitment to duty and craved the cooperation of all for the realisation of the
mandate of the Agency.
“I want to thank
all staff of NIMASA for the commitment to the objectives of this Agency.
“I crave your
cooperation so that together we can actualize the objectives for which the
Agency was set up,” the statement quoted the Acting DG to have said.
Jauro, who until
his appointment was the Executive Director Finance and Administration in the
Agency, is expected to be in charge until a substantive Director General is appointed,
the statement said.
NAN reports that
NIMASA had on July 21 issued a statement announcing Obi as acting director
general after Dr Ziakede Akpobolokemi’s sack as director general of the agency.
Again, the
Agency, on July 25 announced the taking over of the position of the acting
director general by Jauro.
