Obasanjo’s Daughter: NIMASA Defends Promotion To Director

1 min read

The Director General of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency, NIMASA Dr. Bashir Yusuf Jamoh,OFR,  says the promotion of staff to all positions in the Agency, including Director, is merit based.

Dr Jamoh who stated this in Lagos noted that the recent promotion of two of the Agency’s staff to Directors, as part of the 510 newly promoted staff in NIMASA was approved by the Agency’s Board after a thorough and rigorous screening exercise.

The explanation followed speculations that daughter of former President Olusegun Obasanjo, who was promoted to the position of director was unduly favoured for political reasons.

“We are focused on rewarding hard work and commitment with incentives which include promotion of deserving staff on a regular basis in line with the Agency’s extant laws and the Public Service Rules. The promotion of Engineer Chris Amakulo and Mrs.Olubusola Obasanjo-Akande as Directors in the Agency was approved by the Governing Board last week. 22 Assistant Directors were also promoted to Deputy Directors, while 486 other staff were elevated to their next grade levels. All promotions were merit based and we will sustain this practice which is in line with the Agency’s Core values,” Jamoh stated.
