Government agencies lately now shun events organized by maritime media associations with excuses but with a singular intent to avoid sponsorship or financial support. What they fail to realize is that these events are an advocacy platforms for their needs. It is usually cheaper to drive a cause via these means and convince local and international community for a buy in than propagating a self-adulatory event that promotes wastages. Can the maritime media learn to begin to shun these agencies’ events? In an era of automation, NIMASA DG, stays away and his work stays afar, without treatment for months. What excuse does NSC and NPA have? This is becoming recurring among the agencies in media associations’ events. However, the PR unit delegation of NIMASA must be commended for trying to pack the DG’s faeces.
