Former, Director General of the Nigeria Maritime and Safety Agency (NIMASA), Dr. Dakuku Peterside, has described the demise of the immediate past Executive Secretary (ES) of the Nigeria Shippers Council, Capt Adamu Biu, as a huge loss to the Maritime Industry.

Peterside, who praised the deceased’s contributions to the Maritime Sector, said: “The Maritime Industry has lost a titan, a thorough breed professional and a compass who understood the Maritime Industry with insights.

“He was a mentor to many young professionals and always ready to share knowledge and assist younger ones. He is blessed with deep knowledge and disarming humility.”

The former NIMASA boss noted that throughout the tenure of late Biu at the Nigeria Shippers Council which spanned eight years (2004 to 2012), he brought about innovations and policies that helped shape the Industry.

“During my tenure as the Director General of NIMASA, I found his insights and advices invaluable. He was always available to tap from his reservoir of knowledge and offered admonitions where necessary.

“Nigeria has lost a great son, who contributed immensely to the growth and development of the Maritime Sector. The vacuum he has created will be difficult to feel for a long time.

“My condolences to the Government and people of Bornu State for losing an illustrious son, who shone brightly and remained dignified throughout his lifetime. He was indeed a role model,” he stated.
