Nigerians speak out on Hajia Lami Tumaka of NIMASA @ 57 as she lights up lives with good character,compassion

 

Nigerians recount their one-on-one experiences over the years with a World-renowned First-rate Public Relations Guru and immediate past Head of Corporate Communications of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA), now Director, Special Duties in the Director-General’s office, Hajia Lami Tumaka, with TRADE NEWSWIRE, as she clocks 57 years of age on January 14, 2017: Excerpts.

Hajia Lami Tumaka’s Light of Hope keeps burning @ 57

(TRADE NEWSWIRE): “Hajia Lami Tumaka is a different breed of person, in the sense that you can be a Public Relations person by mere occupying the position, but Hajia is a thoroughbred professional, TRADE NEWSWIRE reports.

“I have known her for many years and each time she leaves that position, her impact is deeply felt, but when she is returned to the Public Relations department, everything changes for good again, simply because she connects with the public of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA) directly.

“She is a friend of the media and making efforts to unify maritime journalist associations. On a personal note, she is a person that stood by me at a time when I had challenges; she will phone to admonish me that I will get over the challenges,” these are the words of Mr. Sesan Oniileimo, President of the African Maritime Journalists Association (AMJA) and Publisher of Shipping Position Daily on Hajia Lami Tumaka.

Speaking in the same vein is Mr. Ismaill Aniemu, President, Association of Maritime Journalists of Nigeria (AMJON) and Publisher of The Journal, who said, “Aside knowing her as the Head of Corporate Communications of NIMASA, haven interacted with her for over a decade now, I can tell you that Hajia Lami Tumaka is humane, focused and committed to deliver on her job for any principal she works with. She go extra mile in putting her best in her job.

“I can give you an example, Hajia will send press statement on Sunday morning, while some people will not do that, they will tell you that they cannot take office work home. She gives best of service to the Directors-General of NIMASA she had worked with. I can tell you that her full potential is underutilized in her present position and all the awards she had received are deserving of her efforts.”

While not exempting High Chief George Umunnakwe, a renowned Maritime journalist and Nkwume Ike-Chinyere Ugo, Village Head, Duruihuaku Ancient Kingdom, Isiokwu Ihioma Autonomous Community in Orlu Local Government Area of Imo State, who said, “Hajia Lami Tumaka is the best any organization can have as the Head of their Corporate Communications. She is versatile not only in Public Relations affairs but in all top management positions in an organization.

She is humane and fair in her dealings with the people. She is the mother any child can wish to have, a sister siblings will wish to have. Anything that concerns Hajia, I can vouch for her.”

WHY THE CHOICE OF THOSE INTERVIEWEES

Note: The choice of interviewees was a function of many considerations, as TRADE NEWSWIRE ensured that those that were interviewed were from other regions of the country and not from the Northern part of the country where Hajia Lami Tumaka hails from, in order to have a balanced view and what other regions thought about her.

The first interviewee, Mr. Sesan Oniileimo, is from South West region of Nigeria; second interviewee Mr. Ismaill Aniemu, is from the South South region; and lastly High Chief George Umunnakwe, is from the South East region of Nigeria.

On the choice of profession considered for the interview, journalists were deliberately chosen for the interview because they are the interface between the public and Public officials, which will make them, have access to first hand information about Hajia Lami Tumaka among other important factors that were considered to that effect.

Hajia Lami Tumaka is lightning up lives

ON A LIGHTER MOOD

No, she is qualified; How do you mean, she is even over qualified self; But it is not yet time, let’s still give her some time; if care is not taken they won’t release her at that NIMASA ooo.

Here are discussions some people who visited me and suddenly started discussing the need for Hajia Lami Tumaka to be made a Minister in Nigeria.

This, however, attracted my interjection, as I told them that Hajia Lami Tumaka is still much needed by NIMASA and the entire maritime sector at least for now.

Not knowing that they were not satisfied, only for them to raise future chances for her in either the Governorship or Senatorial positions in Niger State, and i repeatedly told them that they should be patient that Hajia Lami Tumaka is not in haste at all, as her service is still much needed in the maritime sector for now.
