ALMAN Assures Navy, Police, NIMASA of Closer Ties

The Association of Licensed Maritime Academies of Nigeria (ALMAN) has assured the Nigerian Navy (NN), Nigeria Police Force (NPF), and Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA) of closer ties and better relationship.

This was contained in a press release titled “New Year Commitment” issued by the Association through its Secretary-General, Dr. Musa Akinyemi in Lagos.

According to Dr. Akinyemi, ALMAN is a highly-responsible organised private sector-led initiative to harmonise the standards, quality, and integrity of maritime education and training in Nigeria with inclusivity.

He noted that the association and its leadership would never have aimed to witch-hunt or castigate anyone, let alone its critical stakeholders, especially the Navy, Police and NIMASA.

Dr. Musa Akinyemi, Secretary-General, ALMAN.

His words: “In 2024, it’s New Year, New Beginning with the NN, NPF and NIMASA” as far as ALMAN is concerned because these three Federal Government agencies hold the symbiotic powers that sustain the nation’s maritime status and health.

“The three bodies here under focus have come a long way with the necessary records and virgin grounds that ALMAN should commend and explore to foster an excellent camaraderie”.

This, the Secretary-General further explained would pave the way and engender a robust and sustainable maritime domain for the active players who had since dreamt of when Nigeria could harness all her maritime possibilities.

The ALMAN scribe continued: “Today, that dream is now a reality with the birth of the Marine and Blue Economy as an independent Federal Ministry”. ALMAN won’t want to stand aloof any longer.

“We are better prepared and would be more delighted to openly submit our Position Paper to the Honourable Minister of Marine and Blue Economy, H. E. Adegboyega Oyetola, CON; pay a Courtesy Visit to the Chief of Naval Staff; have an Audience with the Inspector-General of Police; and have a Dialogue with the Director-General of NIMASA.

Akinyemi pointed out that it is high time Nigeria gets it right producing qualified and competent off-shore professionals and on-shore graduates per the succession plan, to rejig and rebound the industry to the twenty-first century glory, thus making Nigeria a global maritime destination.
