The maiden Annual Lecture themed: “Maritime Security: Emerging Threats and Actionable Steps”, is targeted at proffering long-term, sustainable solutions and will now be held at Rockview Hotel, Apapa, Lagos by 9am.
In a press statement signed by the President of MARAN, Godfrey Bivbere, the 2023 MAMAL would effectively address maritime crimes in the Gulf of Guinea, GoG region and protect seafaring and fishing communities in the affected countries.
MARAN, as the foremost umbrella body of journalists covering the Nigerian maritime sector has identified and commends the collaborative initiatives and efforts of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency, NIMASA and other maritime agencies which led to a significant reduction in piracy incidents in Nigerian waters and the GoG throughout 2022.
To a large extent, the establishment of the Gulf of Guinea Maritime Collaboration Forum for the Shared Awareness and Deconfliction (GOG-MCF/SHADE) has enabled stakeholders within and outside the region to connect and discuss frequently how best to tackle piracy in the area and this had yielded verifiable results.
Bivbere noted that the Special Guest of Honour is Minister of Marine & Blue Economy, Adegboyega Oyetola while the keynote Speaker is the Director-General of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency, NIMASA, Dr. Bashir Jamoh.
Other speakers will include former NIMASA DG, Barr. Temisan Omatseye, Alhaji Aminu Umar, President of the Nigerian Chamber of Shipping, NCS; Mr. Emmanuel Maiguwa, President, Maritime Security Providers Association of Nigeria, MASPAN and Capt. Waredi Eniosuo
Stakeholders in the maritime sector including Shipowners, NIMASA, Nigerian Shippers’ Council, the Nigerian Ports Authority, NPA, the Nigerian Navy, Shipping Lines, Terminal Operators, and major seafarers’ organizations are all expected to grace this epoch-making event.
Bivbere further noted that other dignitaries expected at the event include the Chairman of Starz Group, Greg Ogbeifun, the Nigeria Ship Owners Association, NISA, Ship Owners Association of Nigeria, SOAN, and all other relevant stakeholders.
