Tag: Retraction


On Saturday Dec 2, the online edition of Shipping World Magazine published a story captioned ' IMO COUNCIL ELECTIONS:NIMASA returns without the 'Trophy' in which we inadvertently quoted Mr Ferdinand Agu as having remarked that 'politicians don't have an idea what the maritime sector is all about' He had asked rhetorically, 'how can you contract maritime safety and security to a private company when the Navy is there?. The said remark was made by a former Director General of NIMASA who craved for anonymity and not Mr Agu as implied in the report. We have since realised that the comment was wrongfully attributed to Ferd Agu, who was a Director General of the National Maritime Authority, NMA and not NIMASA. Our error is regretted
