Dr. Bashir Yusuf Jamoh, the esteemed Director General of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA), has embarked on a visionary quest to revolutionize maritime safety in Nigeria. With a profound commitment to enhancing safety standards and practices, Dr. Jamoh is leading NIMASA on a path of continuous improvement, innovation, and collaboration to ensure the nation’s waters remain safe and secure.

Under Dr. Jamoh’s leadership, NIMASA has prioritized investments in cutting-edge technology and advanced maritime infrastructure. One such example is the implementation of a state-of-the-art Maritime Domain Awareness (MDA) system, bolstering the agency’s ability to monitor vessel movements, identify potential risks, and respond swiftly to maritime incidents.


The MDA system integrates various data sources, including satellite tracking, radar systems, and Automatic Identification System (AIS) to provide real-time information on vessel traffic, weather conditions, and security threats. This powerful tool enhances NIMASA’s situational awareness, enabling the agency to proactively address safety challenges and respond promptly to emergencies.


Dr. Jamoh’s commitment to capacity building and knowledge sharing has also played a pivotal role in advancing maritime safety. NIMASA has collaborated with international maritime organizations to conduct specialized training programs for maritime professionals, equipping them with the latest skills and knowledge to ensure safe and efficient operations.


One notable example is the establishment of the Nigerian Maritime Safety Conference, an annual gathering of maritime stakeholders, experts, and policymakers. This conference serves as a platform for dialogue, where issues pertaining to maritime safety are discussed, and best practices are shared. Dr. Jamoh has leveraged the conference to promote a safety-first approach and foster a culture of continuous improvement within the maritime community.

In addition to technological advancements and capacity building, Dr. Jamoh has led NIMASA in enhancing its regulatory framework and enforcement capabilities. The agency has conducted rigorous inspections of vessels, ports, and maritime facilities, ensuring compliance with international safety standards and regulations.


Furthermore, NIMASA has taken decisive action against maritime security threats, including piracy and sea robbery. Through collaborative efforts with regional and international partners, the agency has made significant strides in combating maritime crimes, making Nigeria’s waters safer for trade and navigation.

In recognition of his outstanding contributions to maritime safety, Dr. Bashir Yusuf Jamoh was awarded the prestigious Order of the Federal Republic (OFR). This honour reflects his dedication and leadership in advancing safety standards in Nigeria’s maritime sector.


As Nigeria’s maritime industry continues to grow and thrive, Dr. Bashir Yusuf Jamoh’s visionary quest for maritime safety remains steadfast. With a strategic blend of technology, capacity building, regulation, and enforcement, NIMASA, under his guidance, is determined to elevate Nigeria’s status as a beacon of maritime safety in the region and beyond. The nation’s maritime community looks forward to a future defined by safety, resilience, and sustainable growth, driven by Dr. Jamoh’s unwavering commitment to excellence.
