The Maritime Workers Union of Nigeria (MWUN)and Nigeria LNG Ship Management Limited (NSML) are seeking greater ties to make the Union viral and stronger. This much was in play today, at the Osho drive Hqs. of the Maritime Workers’ Union (MWUN) when it played host to the Managing Director/CEO of Nigeria LNG Ship Management Limited, Abdul-kadir Ahmed, with his team of two management officials who were guests to the President -General of the Union, Comrade (Prince) Adewale Adeyanju and some of his national and branch executives.
TodayNews gathered that
the visit which was a courtesy call was aimed at congratulating Comrade Adeyanju, who was recently voted unopposed as the Deputy President of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) recently. The visit most importantly was geared to further strengthen the already existing good ties between NSML and the Union; more especially in the areas of the Union’s members, who are Seafarers in the employ of the NSML with very obvious cognisance to their Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA), which will commence soon.
Comrade Adeyanju who was highly impressed with the NSML management visit had real time to relate issues of utmost importance on both parties to the NSML team. However, both parties had agreed to keep the good relationship they have had since inception and promised total transparency and mutual cooperation in all fronts towards striking a balanced success in the maritime sector and most pertinently the welfare of the Seafarers and the Union in general.
While speaking, Comrade Adeyanju equivocally said that the NSML boss and his team’s visit to the Union had shown that he is indeed a grassroots administrator of repute who has immensely transformed the NSML to standard.
Also showing appreciation in this light, the NSML MD, Ahmed reiterated he will continue to come to the table with issues of mutual benefits that will befit the Union at all times and its Seafarers in the NSML workforce

Comrades Francis Bunu ( DPG), Abudu Eroje (DSG Organising), Abubakar Bello ( VPG), Ohize ( President Dockworkers), Avoseh Sunday ( President Seafarers), Uche Igweonu ( National Treasurer), Edwin Sambo (DSG Admin), Ayokunle Ajayi ( General Secretary, Seafarers), Comrade Erazua Oniha (DSG) Ag.
