Ijaw youths, lampooned shipowners in Nigeria following their call to sack the Director-General of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency NIMASA, DakukuPeterside.
The youths under the auspices of the PeretuboOweilami-led Ijaw Youth Council IYC, Worldwide, described the call as a needless distraction.
The group’s Spokesman, Daniel Dasimaka, threw its weight behind Peterside saying he needed commendations for bringing innovations to the maritime sector.
He said apart from the innovations, the shipowners should thank Peterside for his many achievements in the short time he had been in office.
Dasimaka said that Ijaw youths were saddened by the needless attacks on Peterside, whom he described as one of the stars of the Buhari Administration.
