Speaking on the initiative, the Director General, Dr. Dakuku Peterside said that the idea of the Essay Competition is to stimulate youth interest and intellectual discourse in harnessing the potentials of the maritime industry. According to him, “if we say that the youths are the future of tomorrow, we must get them quickly interested and even involved in proffering solutions to some of the challenges that bedevil our country.

“This competition will therefore provide the platform where students will provide their perspectives on how Nigeria can turn the potentials in the maritime environment into opportunities that will unlock the vast wealth in our blue economy”. Peterside was optimistic that the essay competition will not only contribute to the robust discourse on realising the potentials of the blue economy but is also an opportunity for the Agency to support scholarship through the Education Grant.
