Jamoh receives Zik

Director General of Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA), Dr. Bashir Jamoh, has received the prestigious Zik Leadership Prize in Public Policy for 2020. The organisers of the award, the Public Policy Research and Analysis Centre (PPRAC), said Jamoh was honoured for his giant strides in repositioning the Agency with initiatives that inspired tremendous positive change in the maritime sector.

 Thanking the organisers during the awards ceremony in Lagos, the NIMASA boss said: “I grew up hearing of and watching the great Zik of Africa on TV. Back in those days in school, we were taught about Zik as one of our founding fathers. I could never have imagined that I would be receiving this recognition in his name. To be a recipient of this award is very humbling.

“I want to especially appreciate Mr. President, His Excellency, Muhammadu Buhari, for giving me the opportunity to serve the public, for without that opportunity I don’t think I would have been able to contribute to the extent of being recognised for the Zik Leadership Prize in Public Policy.”

 Jamoh, who was accompanied to the event by his wife, Zulai, and one of his children, added
