The position of General Manager at the Samoa Ports Authority (S.P.A.) has become vacant.
This follows the resignation of Aiganalaavasa Uialatea Asofa Fereti.
The resignation was confirmed by a source close to the S.P.A.
The Samoa Observer was told that his resignation became effective on Tuesday this week.
“He has resigned from the job because of health issues,” the source said.
It was not possible to get an official comment from the S.P.A.
In February last year, Cabinet approved the appointment of Aiganalaavasa.
He took over from former General Manager, Tufuga Fagaloa Tufuga.
Aiganalaavasa worked for five years as the Director of Transport for Tokelau and also as the Director of Transport and Support Service at the Apia, Tokelau office.
Prior to that he had worked for the Pacific Forum Line and Polynesian Shipping Limited. He has experience of more than ten years in the shipping industry.
