Abuja - The All Progressives Congress (APC)
has welcomed the appointment of Dakuku Peterside as the new Director General of
the Nigerian Maritime and Safety Agency (NIMASA).
The Rivers State chapter of the ruling party said the
appointment was well deserved.
Peterside was the losing candidate in last year’s
governorship poll in the state.
“Based on what we know about Dr. Peterside, we make bold
to say that his appointment, on (last) Thursday, as the new NIMASA DG is a case
of putting a square peg in a square hole,” APC State Chairman, Davies Ikanya,
He described Peterside as a tested and trusted
reformist-minded administrator who has all it takes to reform and transform
NIMASA into the pride of Nigeria and Africa.

includes a degree in Business Administration (Management) and certificates in
Leadership and Project Management, he holds a Doctorate degree in
Organizational Management with research interest in Corporate Political
The party congratulated Peterside and assured him of its
prayers for his success in his new duty post.
It commended President Muhammadu Buhari and the
Minister for Transportation, Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, for the confidence
reposed in Peterside as evidenced in his appointment as the helmsman of a
strategic parastatal like NIMASA.
