NIMASA advises Nigerians abroad to invest in maritime sector
Dr. Bashir Jamoh, the director general of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency, has urged Nigerians living abroad to make investments in the maritime industry of their home nation.
Jamoh made the call in Abuja, Nigeria, at the Global African Diaspora Symposium’s closing ceremony, which had as its theme “Building stronger connections between Africa and the global diaspora.”
Jamoh, who was represented at the event by Mr. Isichie Osamgbi, Director of Special Duties, NIMASA, called the maritime industry the next big thing and said it was full of resources that would help the economy grow.
He declared, “We see the maritime sector as the country’s future oil because it is an untapped gold mine. The maritime sector, or “blue economy,” has more resources than you can possibly imagine. So, in our opinion, it is a worthwhile investment. In Nigeria, money invested in the maritime industry is thought to be well-invested.
Abike Dabiri-Erewa, the Director General of the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission, the symposium’s organizers, earlier thanked NIMASA for their support of the program and urged participants with questions about the maritime sector to get in touch with the organization for clarification.
