Philip Kyanet

The Director General of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency NIMASA, Dr. Bashir Jamoh has approved the appointment of a new Head, Corporate Communications Unit of agency in the person of Philip Kyanet.

He takes over from Isichei Osamgbi who, moves to the Department of Special Duties.

Though there has not been an official announcement from the agency, competent sources close to NIMASA hinted that this new posting is in line with the ongoing shake-up among the top management cadre of the agency, which saw the redeployment of some directors by the new management team led by Dr. Jamoh.

Kyanet, who is currently an Assistant Director, has been a core staffer of the department since the days of the defunct National Maritime Authority NMA and therefore comes with lots of experience and expertise.
