World Maritime University (WMU) has lauded the management of Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA) for its policies of gender equality which have manifested in both the number of women employed by the Agency as well as those sponsored for capacity development in country and abroad.

Doumbia-Henry also thanked NIMASA for its longstanding relationship with WMU, stating that the World Maritime University have had a long, mutually, beneficial relationship with Nigeria and NIMASA in particular.

“Our visit is to further strengthen the ties between ourselves while exploring areas of future collaboration”.

“I also wish to especially congratulate Jamoh for the gender-inclusive agenda, especially under his leadership. We have observed that in the number of female officers of the Agency that are sent to the WMU for maritime studies’.

Bashir Jamoh NIMASA DG in his speech explained the reasons behind the longstanding relationship between both parties, stating:

“Our continued relationship with the World Maritime University is informed by the Agency’s commitment to professionalism, research and development as well as striving to attain global best practices in carrying out our responsibilities. This informs our choice of WMU when sending some of our staff to the institution for further training”. We have a deliberate policy in line with the International Maritime Organization to encourage more female participation in maritime.
