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, said.
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.
“Dr. Peterside comes well prepared for the task of breathing a new life into NIMASA,” said Ikanya.
“Apart from boasting a sound academic background that 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 Strategy.”
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.
