The Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency, NIMASA, has said that it will continue to partner with the Nigerian Navy for the security of Nigerian water ways and the optimum exploration of the nation’s marine resources.

Director General of the agency, Dakuku Peterside gave the assurance when Naval Cadets of the 66 Regular Course of the Nigerian Defence Academy, NDA, visited the Agency on a study visit.

He assured the Cadets that the symbiotic relationship that exists between NIMASA and the Nigerian Navy will be sustained, adding that their visit to NIMASA is a step in the right direction as they will always have reason to interact with the Maritime Administration upon commissioning.

Peterside praised the gallantry and bravery of Officers and Ratings of the Nigerian Navy, which he described as one of the best Naval Forces in the world.



    The DG commended the young Cadets for choosing to serve and protect the territorial integrity of Nigeria.

    He said: “You have chosen a very noble course as brave men and women, only the brave will chose to enlist in our military.

    “As courageous men and women, you have offered to make all forms of sacrifices first for the good of our country and for all of us your country men and women so that we can move about freely; most importantly so that the territorial integrity of our nation will be protected,” he added.

    The Naval Cadets were led on the visit by Alfred Oride, a Naval Commander, and the visit was aimed at familiarizing them with NIMASA’s activities as they relate to the Nigerian Navy.
