The Association of Tourist Boat Operators and Water Transporters of Nigeria (ATBOWATON) appointed two special advisers to help deepen the running of the organization.
The association has also sent out warnings to registered members who ignore distress calls from fellow operators in course of accidents or operational difficulties.
Those appointed to help ATBOWATON President Dr Ganiyu Tarzan Balogun, are Mr. Tope fajimirokun and Mr. Joseph Philip.
While Fajimirokun doubles as the Badagry chapter chairman of the association, takes up additional responsibility as Special Advisor to ATBOWATON National President on inter government relationship and labour matters, Engineer Joseph Philip will henceforth process all national security issues on waterways, and also advice and guide the National President.
The President of the association called on Tope Fajimirokun and Joseph Philip to bring their wealth of experience and passion for the industry to bear on their new assignments, adding that ATBOWATON has come of age and must be seen to add value to the development of the system.
