Meanwhile, players in the maritime and port industry also bid farewell to Dr. Kofi Mbiah for a selfless service he has rendered to the country and the Maritime Industry as a whole which is worth emulating.
At an impressive and well patronised event held in the honour of the man considered to be arguably the longest served CEO of a state agency, dignitaries upon dignitaries including the former Director General of the Ghana Ports and Harbours Authority, Richard Anamoo and the Executive Director for the Center for Maritime Law and Security, Dr. Kamal-Deen Ali paid a glowing tribute in honor of his dedicated service to Ghana.
“Dr. Kofi has been a very good gem. And for those of us who have been in the maritime industry, it has been lovely working with you and I say congratulations, well done. Whatever is going to be done in the industry whether in law or physical assets, not only in Ghana Shippers’ Authority but the entire maritime industry in Ghana, I believe your name will remain solid. Congratulations to you and your family”, Richard Anamoo said.
“So as a maritime lawyer and navy officer, I request that beyond celebrating Dr. Mbiah’s footprints, we are actually celebrating his sea waves, we are celebrating his sea prints, something that very few people can always have,” Dr Kamal Deen declared.
There were also solidarity messages from maritime players in Nigeria who described Dr. Mbiah as a gem in the maritime industry due to the vast experience and service he has devoted his life for.
They said Dr. Mbiah is someone who is extremely intellectually sound and a pillar of not only the maritime industry but a son of Africa.
They described Dr. Mbiah “as an intellectual to the core especially in the maritime sector because he has represented this country (Ghana) in different areas especially at IMO.”
