Have you ever heard of such names as Atedo Peterside, Tam David-West, Tekena Tamuno, Nimi Briggs, Barineme Fakae, Hebert Wiggwe, amongst others? All of them have one factor in frequent: they’re world class technocrats and, are all Rivers folks.
On Thursday, March 25, 2021, Dakuku Peterside converged the Presidency, Government Governors, Ministers, high political brass, captains and heads of personal and public sectors on the Transcorp Hilton Lodge, Abuja to share his testomony of stewardship because the DG of NIMASA (2016-202).
On the superb occasion, he formally offered his e book: Strategic Turnaround.
In 4 years, Peterside circled NIMASA in what’s arguably one of many best manifestation of imaginative and prescient, dedication and panache in a public workplace.
Solely the irrepressible and golden Amazon, late Dora Akunyili achieved such a measure of success and grit throughout her tenure because the DG of NAFDAC.
For good measure, Dakuku Peterside was elected twice to talk for Africa so far as maritime administration was involved.
Rivers State should certainly be happy with such a son, who has confirmed that the State is blessed with technocrats that may compete globally.
Within the phrases of Sir Winston Churchill, “By no means give in besides to convictions of honor and good sense.”
Congratulations Dakuku Peterside, Ph.D

I watched the launch of Dakuku Peterside’s, STRATEGIC TURNAROUND of NIMASA and I used to be impressed with the turnout of political bigwigs and captains of industries. It was a gathering of Eagles devoid of the same old celebration politics, a lot as Governor Zulum of Borno State took trip of his ardour for his battle ravaged state to talk on the necessity for rotation and zoning of presidency.
I’ll step on toes to ask why Dakuku was not returned for a second time as Director-Common of the Federal Authorities company since he did a spectacular job!
I didn’t hear any of the Guide Reviewers kick towards his revelations and submissions on the repositioning of a grossly corrupt company of presidency.
Whereas there could possibly be different political causes for his elimination even on the voyage of expedition in turning water into wine at NIMASA, it’s stunning that these unknown elements may override competence and resourcefulness.
That is the bane of Nigeria’s growth the place advantage and excellence are traded off rather than political patronage, ethnicity and faith!
A superb outing by a scholar of excessive reputation should reward him quite than push him apart, a lot because it could possibly be just like the parable of the 5 smart virgins who had sufficient oil to attend for the approaching of the bridegroom.
Dakuku’s best hour will certain come as we await a Deliberate Turnaround of the Financial system when subsequent he’s known as to serve!

My Lovable Obiaruko Ndukwe, you’ve proven over time that, you’ve bought that midas contact with the pen 🖊 and pad. Let me go away that for one more day.
Dakuku Peterside proved himself to be a reliable, dependable and progressive supervisor, throughout his time at NIMASA. His revolutionary and outcome oriented method, turned across the fortune of the as soon as unproductive/ unprofessional NIMASA, into a large reliable income producing physique, with competent service supply.

The paradox of Nigeria. If Dakuku did a terrific job, why was he changed and if he was eliminated out of necessity why are his expertise not being utilized in one other capability in a rustic ravaged with incompetent directors. If he didn’t do a terrific job, why are they praising him to excessive heavens. Why is no one rebutting his claims that he has proven capability as a flip round professional. The inconsistencies of yesterday’s ceremonies and speeches have to be defined and reconciled if we’re to make progress as a nation. There have to be reward for competence and shunning for incompetence in any other case why border. Like some smart man mentioned, “ a nation will get the management it deserves”.
