Professional Divers Decry FG’s Neglect, Marginalisation

National Association of Professional Divers (NAPROD) has decried marginalisation and knowledge drain, following the Federal Government’s neglect of its members.

It lamented that several skilled divers were jobless, drained of their knowledge and expertise, while some national and sundry foreigners were improving at their expense.

President of NAPROD, Yamboizibe Elwick Dickson, stated this in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, yesterday, at the inauguration of its 2021/2022 Executive Council.

Noting that Nigerian divers were some of the best globally, given their achievements over the years, Dickson described their neglect and marginalisation as “sad and a misnomer.”

He, however, expressed hope that the Ministry of Labour and Employment in collaboration with the Diving Governing Board and other agencies would work towards improving the working conditions of Nigerian divers.
