The Director General of Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA), Dr. Bashir Yusuf Jamoh, OFR, has commissioned a multi-purpose hall built in honour of Late Paeke in Ngootlong, Plateau State.
Jamoh described the deceased as a morally upright young man who was ethically conscious and an epitome of exemplary conduct among his peers.
The 38-year old Late Prince Paeke Dongban was an employee of the agency until his death on July 23, 2022
Describing Paeke from the workplace perspective, Dr. Jamoh said the deceased was known for punctuality, commitment to work and sincerity to the cause of nation building.
Dr. Jamoh said: “An emotional void created in the hearts of the NIMASA family members by the demise of Prince is filled by the noble deeds he was noted for and the many positive ways he touched lives at work and at play. Prince was an ambassador of the modern Nigerian youth.
The NIMASA boss while consoling the parents of the deceased, noted the efforts to immortalise their late son with the building of a multipurpose hall in his honour, reassuring that the agency and all friends of Paeke, will always stand by them.
