LAGOS – Seasoned administrator and maritime technocrat, Dr. Dakuku Peterside says the demise of immediate past Executive Secretary of the Nigeria Shippers Council, Capt Adamu Biu is a huge loss to the maritime industry.
“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 (2004-2012), he brought about innovations and policies that helped shape the industry.
“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.
