“Let me use this opportunity to state that NIMASA and the Nigerian Navy are partners in progress, because without synergy we cannot realise our mandates. We will continue to work closely with the Nigerian Navy to strengthen the existing ties to ensure we keep our maritime environment safe and secured”, the DG stated in a statement signed by  Assistant Director, Public Relation, NIMASA, Osagie Edward.

The NIMASA Boss commendation came when the Nigerian Navy handed over a Tanker vessel “MT Sea Eunice” which was arrested on August 11, 2022 to the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA). The vessel is presently located along Escravos River, close to the Aroton community.
