BASHIR JAMOH: MARITIME LIVING LEGEND OF THE WEEK

Dr. Bashir Jamoh is no doubt many things to many people. An evolving persona dramatis, Jamoh has in the past couple of years appealed to authorities, corporate and institutional personalities, veterans, thinkers, policy and decision makers, chieftains of industries, fellow technocrats, profile engineers to name but a few.

Naturally, many have conceded many different titles to him, despite that many see him first and foremost as one of the finest and youthful manager of men and resources, others see him as an emerging transportant with an unusual patriotic national appeal, seemingly eager to    begin the process of purposeful and corrective national renaissance, especially in the maritime and transport sector where he presently holds forth.

And in actual fact, Jamoh have in very clear and unassuming terms demonstrated other engaging traits to be found with persons gifted in strategic planning, that it takes just a little more effort to identify in him quite a deal of other characteristics of a persona dramatis.

Jamoh has over 25 years of public service experience. He had served in the Kaduna State Government before transferring his services to Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA), known then as National Maritime Authority (NMA) in 1994.

Jamoh attended the Ahmadu Bello University Zaria for his Diploma in Accounting. He moved on to obtain his Advanced Diploma in Management from the Bayero University Kano. Intellectually inclined, Jamoh proceeded to the Korea Maritime and Ocean University in South Korea, where he got his Masters degree in Management, with an additional Professional Certificate in Materials Management from the Institute of Logistics in the UK. He finally bagged his P.hd from the University of Port Harcourt specializing in Logistics and Transport Management.

A consummate professional, Jamoh has attended management courses at the Said Business School, Oxford University, UK as well as the Institute of Public Partnerships in Washington DC, USA. He is a member of several professional associations including the Chartered Institute of Transport and Logistics, Chartered Institute of Administration of Nigeria and Institute of Maritime Economists (Canada).

After many years in the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA), he is currently in the management team as the Executive Director, Administration and Finance. He was until his last appointment the Assistant Director in NIMASA in charge of Training and Development, and had the privileged experience of serving in the operations and administrative departments of the agency at management level, bringing this knowledge to bear on his new assignment.

A team player and shrewd manager, Jamoh has helped in keeping a tight cap on the financial businesses of the agency while promoting capacity industry engagement by port users, operators and players.

Earlier this year, he was decorated the President of the Chartered Institute of Transport Administration in Nigeria, CIoTA, where he proposed a new approach to achieving a robust transport infrastructure.

An engaging strong maritime personality with huge developmental outlook and budding resourcefulness, Jamoh has the charming quirk for integrated scientific approach to maritime and ports development dynamics.

Eminently read and forward looking, he has continued to impress great maritime minds and observers alike as an upcoming force to watch.
