Barely 24 hours after he assumed duties as the new Acting Director General/Chief Executive Officer of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA), Mr. Haruna Baba Jauro has shaken up the agency, redeploying a good number of departmental heads.

News Express can confirm that Isichei Osamgbi, until today NIMASA Deputy Director/Head Public Relations, was one of those affected by the shake-up. “He is not the only one,” a competent source told News Express. “Several other people were also affected,” the source added.

Jauro yesterday formally took over from Barrister Calistus Nwabueze Obi as NIMASA Acting DG at a brief handover ceremony in NIMASA’s Head Office in Lagos. Obi had been announced for the position last week via a statement signed by Osamgbi but was removed after four days by the Presidency on the excuse that Jauro first reported for work even though both were employed the same day as executive directors.

Jauro, until his appointment the NIMASA Executive Director Finance and Administration, is expected to be in charge until a substantive Director General is appointed.
