21 September 2015, Lagos – The Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency has disengaged three persons found to have been illegally employed.

A statement by the Head, Public Relations, NIMASA, Hajia Lami Tumaka, said that there were irregularities associated with the engagement of the affected persons.

The statement read, “An administrative investigation conducted by the agency revealed that the employment of the three officers at the twilight of the administration of Dr. Ziakede Akpobolokemi as director-general did not follow due process required for employment into the civil service.

“Contrary to speculations that NIMASA has disengaged 200 of its employees, only these three persons, whose engagement had wholesome irregularities, have been asked to leave.”
