NIMASA to visit the Philippines over protest by NDSP 2013 cadets at Nigerian embassy

The management of Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA) has said that it's  monitoring the unfortunate development in the Philippines involving NIMASA NSDP 2013 cadets, as seen in a recent online video.

A statement issued by the Head, Public Relations of the agency, Mr. Edward Osagie  assured Nigerians that NIMASA has received Ministerial approval for an assessment visit this October to ascertain, first-hand, the issues to fully and finally address them.

The statement disclosed that the Executive Director, Maritime Labour and Cabotage Services, Engr. Victor Ochei, will lead the fact-finding mission to the Philippines to engage with the school and the cadets. 

"As responsible management, we must deal with this from an informed position, as the matter far predates this administration.

While we regret the embarrassment this may have caused all concerned; we urge caution and avoidance of any speculative reporting until the official outcome of the on-the-spot evaluation to the Philippines is submitted," the statement added.
