The Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA) has announced the disengagement of three persons who were found to have been illegally employed into the Agency for irregularities associated with their engagement.

“An administrative investigation conducted by the Agency revealed that the employment of the three officers at the twilight of the administration of Dr. Ziakede Patrick Akpobolokemi as Director General did not follow due process required for employment into the civil service,” Head, Public Relations, Hajia Lami Tumaka, said this afternoon in a statement issued in Lagos.

“Contrary to speculation in some sections of the media that NIMASA has disengaged 200 staff in its employ, only these three persons whose engagement had wholesome irregularities have been asked to leave,” Hajia Tumaka said.

She pointed out that, “Like every Federal Government agency, the Federal Civil Service rules govern engagement and disengagement of officers in NIMASA.”

“Media organisations would therefore do well to contact the Agency for clarification on these issues, or at least conduct preliminary investigations in order not mislead unsuspecting members of the public and spread disaffection,” the NIMASA Spokesperson stated.
