Former Benue gubernatorial aspirant under the All Progressives Congress (APC), Rt Hon. Emmanuel Jime has been appointed the Director General of Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA), according to a source.
Jime was formerly Speaker of the Benue State House of Assembly and later member representing Makurdi/Guma Federal Constituency at the House of Representatives before he entered the Benue gubernatorial race and was famously known as winner of the botched APC primaries in December 2014.
An aggrieved Jime approached the court to seek justice but was later embroiled in a signature forgery scandal, after which he agreed to out-of-court settlement with Governor Samuel Ortom whose emergence as the party’s gubernatorial candidate he challenged.
Though the appointment letter is yet to be given to him officially, we will update you as soon as the official announcement is made.
