According to Jamoh, Peterside was unanimously elected by all member nations of the association.

Alhaji Bashir Jamoh, the Executive Director, Finance of NIMASA and Chairman AAMA Conference Local Organising Committee, said this at a news conference in Abuja, drawing the curtain on the third conference of the association.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Peterside succeeds Mr Sobantu Tilayi, who is presently the Acting Chief Executive Officer of the South African Maritime Administration.

“The election would serve as a platform for African countries, Asia and European nations to support Nigeria in getting elected into Category `C’ of the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) Council.
