The Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency is set to implement a new maritime security programme. The Director-General, NIMASA, Dr. Dakuku Peterside, stated this when the Shipping Association of Nigeria paid him a courtesy visit in Lagos.
He informed the association that a lot of work was being done to ensure security of the maritime sector through the integrated maritime security infrastructure and waterways surveillance system, adding that no stone would be left unturned to achieve the agency's objectives of zero tolerance for all forms of criminalities on the nation's waterways.
"Let me assure you that very soon, the issue of maritime security would be history, because by then we would have fully implemented the new maritime security architecture, which would include deployment of more equipment, more personnel and of course upping the game in the area of intelligence," he said.
