The Director, Western Zonal Office of NIMASA Mr. Olayemi Abass handing over some of the relief materials donated to Ondo state by the Agency to the Permanent Secretary, Deputy Governor’s office Mrs Desola Alabi in Akure on Thursday.

The Nigerian Maritime
Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA) has continued its donation of relief
materials to victims affected by flood and other disasters across the country.

The Agency took the exercise to Akure in Ondo state where
various items were donated to the Ondo State Government for onward distribution
to affected citizens.
Speaking during the
presentation of the materials in Akure, the Director General of NIMASA Dr.
Dakuku Peterside stated that in line with the Agency’s policy on Corporate
Social Responsibility, NIMASA would continue to provide support for victims of
natural and man-made disasters across the country.
The Director General who was
represented by the Agency’s Director, Western Zonal Office, Mr. Olayemi Abass
, said that the Agency would
continue to vigorously pursue the improvement of the welfare of Nigerians and
the economy as a whole.
His words: “We are here to comply with the
Federal Government’s directive for all government organizations to use their
powers and resources to alleviate the suffering of Nigerians affected by flood
and other disasters. We therefore call on other corporate bodies to partner
with us in this drive.
While receiving the
materials, the Deputy Governor of Ondo State Hon. Agboola Ajayi commended
NIMASA for reaching out to Ondo State.
He said that the materials could not have come at a better time
especially because the Ondo State Government is currently handling the
devastating effect of the rain storm that ravaged the Supare and Ikare Akoko
areas of the state.
The Deputy Governor who was
represented by the Permanent Secretary, Office of the Deputy Governor, Mrs
Desola Alabi, said that the Ondo State Government would continue to partner with
agencies such as NIMASA in various areas for the common good of Nigeria.
It would be recalled that
NIMASA commenced the second phase of the donation of relief materials to
Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) nationwide last week with the presentation
of household items to IDPs in Lagos and Niger States.
Twenty states across the
nation’s six geopolitical zones that have been ravaged by flood and other
disasters will benefit from this segment of the exercise.
