Mbah Eulogizes Ex-NIMASA Boss, Laments A National Loss

Dr. Peter Mbah, the Governor of Enugu State, has mourned the loss of Ferdinand Agu, a distinguished former leader of the National Maritime Authority, presently Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA), describing his passing as a tremendous loss for both Enugu State and Nigeria.

Governor Mbah’s tribute highlighted Ferdinand Agu’s remarkable legacy as a strategic thinker and transformative leader, whose invaluable contributions to Enugu State and Nigeria’s growth would be deeply missed.

Mbah said, “I received with deep grief the sudden death of my brother, Ferdinand Agu, MFR, a development I have been struggling to come to terms with.

In his tribute, he portrayed Agu as an illustrious Enugu State indigene, a consummate gentleman, intellectual colossus, skilled navigator, political virtuoso, and a selfless technocrat, who left an indelible mark on Nigeria’s history.

His words: “Agu was an illustrious son of Enugu State, a fine gentleman, brilliant mind, savvy administrator, political engineer, consummate technocrat, and a quiet achiever, who gave his best in service to Nigeria.

“As a former Director-General of the defunct National Maritime Authority, NMA, now NIMMASA, as well as former Senior Special Assistant to the President between 2011 and 2015, he contributed immensely to the development of our nation and state. Therefore, he will always remain in our thoughts.
