Corruption Allegations Against Jamoh Are Malicious And Baseless

…NIMASA Clears the air on damaging rumours

By Ebenezer William

Members of the public have been advised to ignore the cheap and malicious campaign against Dr Bashir Jamoh, Director General, of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA).

In a press statement made public by the Public Relations Unit, NIMASA and signed by Mr Osagie Edward, Asst. Director, Public Relations titled “RE: SOCIAL MEDIA CAMPAIGN OF CALUMNY AGAINST NIMASA DG” the statement described the allegation as not only baseless but also noted to be same old allegation made by some faceless people to tarnish the image of the DG in 2021 but was trashed, even as the Economic and Financial Crime Commission,( EFCC) investigated and found no link to the NIMASA boss.

The statement:
“Our attention has been drawn to a video in circulation with allegations by some faceless people levelled against the person of the DG NIMASA bothering on an assumed N1.5 Trillion and Nine Million Dollars payment into the personal account of the NIMASA Chief Executive.
“We wish to state categorically that there is no iota of truth in this allegation as this social media post had been earlier circulated over three years ago in 2021”.
“It is worthy of note that in 2021, when the allegations were then circulated, NIMASA DG had personally requested the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC to investigate it.

” In the petition he signed and dated May 24th, 2021, Dr Jamoh complained that the viral story has impugned his integrity, character and family name.”

Edward added, “This circulation of the 2021 video is the handiwork of mischief makers who are bent on misinforming unsuspecting members of the public for interest best known to them and their sponsors.”

He therefore advised members of the public to hereby disregard the content of this misleading social media post
