You can put a light coating of silicon grease on top of the nib ... but why bother with such "minor" things.

 

Life is too short, just enjoy the thoughts that flow out of that nib and see how it can encourage someone.

The phenomenon you encountered is called “nib creep”.

 

nib creep The spontaneous accumulation of ink on the top surface of a nib; the ink is said to “creep” up out of the slit. Some inks are more prone to creep than others.

 

The main cause for nib creep are the chemical properties of the employed ink or (less likely) a substandard nib finishing.
