President Muhammadu Buhari has terminated the appointment of Patrick Ziakede Akpobolokemi as director-general of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA).
Special adviser to the president on media and publicity, Femi Adesina stated this in a statement issued on Thursday, stating that the termination takes immediate effect.
“He is to hand over the management of NIMASA and all government property in his possession to the most senior officer in the agency who will remain in charge until a new director-general is appointed,” according to the statement.
Akpobolokemi was appointed by former President Goodluck Jonathan for a tenure of four years in 2010 and renewed his appointment in 2014.
Until he presided over the maritime agency, Akpobolokemi was a lecturer at the Niger Delta University, Wilberforce Island in Bayelsa state.
