The Director General of Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency NIMASA, Dr. Bashir Jamoh has said that evolving an efficient and effective public service system would boost the country’s economic growth and development thereby enhancing the citizzen’s prosperity.

This proposal is coming on the heels of the agency’s resolve to partner the Bureau of Public Service Reforms BPSR on the design and implementation of the transformational initiatives in the maritime industry.

Recall that the Federal Government had in 2004 established the BPSR to coordinate the implementation of its reform policies and programmes.

Jamoh, who disclosed this in Abuja during a visit to the Bureau, said the partnership would focus on reform initiatives and developmental research.

Represented by the agency’s Director, Reform Coordination and Strategic Management, Dr. Kabir Murnai, the DG also said that a sustainable relationship between the two Federal Government agencies was essential for capacity development.

“We are here to see how we can connect with BPSR in order to clearly understand and key into government’s specific priorities, while still pursuing the respective mandates and goals of NIMASA.

“NIMASA desires advisory and technical support services for change management teams, to engender an environment of learning within the agency”, he stated.

Meanwhile, Director of BPSR, Mr. Dasuki Ibrahim Arabi, appreciated the NIMASA DG and his management team for the visit.

He pledged the Bureau’s commitment to the collaboration agreement for the mutual benefit of the two agencies.
