President of Maritime Security Providers Association dies in Lagos – Sec. Gen

The Maritime Security Providers Association of Nigeria (MASPAN) on Sunday announced the death of its president, Mr Ubong Thompson King, on Dec. 26.

 

The association announced the death in a statement issued in Lagos by its General Secretary, Mr Emmanuel Maiguwa.

 

Maiguwa said: “It is with utter despair that we, the Board of Trustees, Executive Committee and the entire members of MASPAN announce the death of Mr Ubong Thompson King.

 

“Until his death, King, as the president of the association, had contributed immensely to the safety and security of the Nigerian maritime environment.

 

“Under his leadership, the association critically reviewed the ‘Best Management Practice (BMP) West Africa’ and met with the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA) with a proposal for recommended actions in the best interest of West Africa’s Gulf of Guinea.

 

“King served selflessly and steered the ship of the association with his inimitable wit and renowned leadership ability; he will be sorely missed.”

 

Maiguwa noted that King, an iconic business consultant, was known as the “King of Social Media”, adding that he was the Chief Executive Officer of Ubong King Foundation, Protection Plus Ltd., among others.

 

He said that further information on his burial and other final rites shall be duly communicated when it was announced by his family.
