Watch: Master mariners discuss issues seafarers face and consider possible solutions
On our programme ‘At The Marina Today’, we have
- Captain Ade Olopoenia- A former Director of Safety at the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency(NIMASA) and former President of the Nigerian Association of Master Mariners(NAMM);
- Captain Tajudeen Alao- President of the Nigerian Association of Master Mariners; and
- Marine engineer Emmanuel Emesiri- a Class Surveyor.
It was an exciting time as they shared on very important issues affecting seafarers.
They looked at the recent challenges that seafarers faced as a result of the #Covid19 pandemic.
It isn’t totally strange to be locked down at sea, one of the mariners noted, but the problem was that of leaving the seafarers feeling abandoned.
But, why would any seafarer want to go back to this ‘love’ sealife? The mariners share the reasons with us and we are pleased to let you come on board this sail!
