The Presidency through the Bureau of Public Service Reforms has declared the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency, NIMASA, as the best Federal Government Agency in Digital Transformation.
The Director General, who conveyed the Presidential award to NIMASA Management also announced that the Director-General of NIMASA, Dr Bashir Jamoh, has been nominated to receive the distinguished GovTech Trailblazers award for providing exemplary leadership.
The BPSR also announced that the awards were as a result of a nationwide nomination and online voting process initiated by the Bureau, as well as a detailed analysis of performance of all government MDAs at the national level.
The award presentation is scheduled to take place in Abuja next month.
Reacting to the recognitions, Jamoh expressed his pleasure and assured of the Agency’s commitment to full operational digitalization.
He stated: “This award is a pleasant surprise. We weren’t expecting it. We were just doing our job. This award will spur us to accelerate our quest to fully digitalize all NIMASA operations.”
Public sector reform consists of deliberate changes to the structures and processes of public sector organizations with the objective of getting them to run better.
