The Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA) has berated the All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Campaign Organisation for alleging that it is involved in President Goodluck Jonathan’s re-election campaign.

NIMASA in a statement issued in Lagos by its Deputy Director/Head Public Relations Isichei Osamgbi said that the agency and its Director General, Dr. Ziakede Patrick Akpobolokemi, “have never been involved in any form of campaign against any politician, nor sponsor same.”

It accused APC) Presidential Campaign Organisation “and their agents are only attempting yet again without success to discredit the agency, having failed in doing so through the malicious lies on the purchase of the operational vessels, and attempt to discredit NIMASA success story which is currently training over 2,500 young Nigerians as seafarers.”

“We are only a government agency doing our normal statutory duties as a maritime regulatory agency and proud of our achievements which have been globally acclaimed,” Osamgbi said in the statement.
