Ijaw youths across the Niger Delta have warned against any attempt to use the National Assembly to seek replacement of the Director-General of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency, NIMASA, Mr. Ziakede Akpobulokemi.

They said that the National Assembly should not allow selfish individuals and groups to use it to blackmail the NIMASA boss.

Mr. Prince Oniyemofe, President of Ijaw Youth Development Association, IYDA, gave the warning when he led hundreds of Ijaw youths across the Niger Delta to pay a courtesy visit to the Coordinator of Ijaw Monitoring Group, Mr. Joseph Evah, in Lagos.

The youths said that their visit to Lagos was to find out from the Niger Delta activist whether Akpobulokemi’s life was under threat by detractors.

Evah, the former Publicity Secretary of Ijaw National Congress, INC, assured the youths on the safety of the NIMASA Director-General.

According to Evah, those plotting against the DG were enemies of progress in the maritime sector, noting that the sector was in shambles before the emergence of Akpobulokemil as DG.

“Some of the childish argument was that Akpobulokemi has no background in maritime studies, but I asked the detractors why they were not demanding that citizens from the Northern part of the country should not be employed in NIMASA and the agency be reserved for only riverine people in the country?” Evah noted.
