Buhari sacks NIMASA boss, others

THE NATION Newspaper- Augustine Ehikioya

President Muhammadu Buhari on Thurday terminated the appointment of Mr. Patrick Ziakede Akpobolokemi as Director-General of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA).

A statement by the Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, however did not give reason for the termination of appointment.

But it said that the termination of Mr. Akpobolokemi’s appointment takes immediate effect.

Akpobolokemi, the statement said, is to hand over the management of NIMASA and all government property in his possession to the most senior officer in the agency, who will remain in charge until a new Director-General is appointed.

He was reappointed for another four-year tenure in October 2014 by former President Goodluck Jonathan when the first tenure expired.
