The Presidency through the Bureau of Public Service Reforms (BPSR) has declared the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA) as the best Federal Government Agency in Digital Transformation.
Dasuki Arabi, the director general of BPSR conveyed the Presidential award to NIMASA Management and also announced that Bashir Jamoh, the director general of NIMASA, has been nominated to receive the distinguished GovTech Trailblazers award for providing exemplary leadership.
The BPSR also announced that the awards were a result of a nationwide nomination and online voting process initiated by the Bureau, as well as a detailed analysis of the performance of all government MDAs at the national level.
The award presentation is scheduled to take place in the nation’s federal capital in October this year.
Bashir Jamoh, director general of NIMASA, expressed pleasure and assured of the Agency’s commitment to full operational digitalization.
“This award is a pleasant surprise. We weren’t expecting it. We were just doing our job. This award will spur us to accelerate our quest to fully digitalise all NIMASA operations.”
Public sector reform consists of deliberate changes to the structures and processes of public sector organisations with the objective of getting them to run better.
