NIGERIA MARITIME UNIVERSITY (NMU) OKERENKOKO, WARRI

President Goodluck Jonathan will on Saturday, May 10, flag
off the commencement of the Nigeria’s first maritime university located
in the Niger-Delta region. The president will also perform the
groundbreaking for the commencement of construction works in the
university permanent site, located at Okerenkoko, both in Warri
South-West Local Government Area of Delta State.
Idris Umar, the minister of transport, after touring the
facilities recently, commended the efforts of NIMASA for the pace of
work at the temporary site of the university as well as the take-off of
construction activities at Okerenkoko where the NIMASA dockyard and
shipyard as well as the permanent site of the university are to be
located.
Ziakede Patrick Akpobolokemi, the director general of the
Nigeria Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA), said in a
statement signed by Isichei Osamgbi, deputy director, public relations,
that the President Jonathan will also flag off construction works on the
proposed NIMASA ship building yard that would also be sited at

The NIMASA boss stated that the Nigeria Maritime
University, which is expected to commence its first academic session at
its temporary site in Kurutie in September, would provide the human
capacity required for the maritime sector in addition to serving as a
research and knowledge centre for both cadets and other maritime
operators. The shipyard, which is expected to build and maintain various
sizes of vessels, is also expected to complement the objective of
manpower development by providing opportunity for cadets studying Naval
Architecture to have practical experience.
“The dearth of human capacity in the maritime sector
occasioned by inadequate maritime training institutions in Nigeria was a
major reason that influenced the decision of the National Assembly to
endorse the recommendation of NIMASA to establish a maritime
university,” Akpobolokemi said.
According to him, the establishment of Nigeria Maritime
University is in furtherance of the agency’s effort to building local
capacity in the maritime sector and ultimately for the export of
manpower.
“The current Nigerian Seafarers Development Programme
(NSDP) of NIMASA has graduated 51 cadets, while about 2,505 officers and
ratings are undergoing various maritime academic programmes in
reputable institutions in Philippines, Egypt, India, Romania and the
United Kingdom.”
It would be recalled that the agency has also sponsored
Maritime Institutes in four Nigerian universities – University of Lagos;
University of Nigeria, Nsukka; Niger Delta University, Amasoma, Bayelsa
State; and Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida University, Lapai, Niger State;
while the Maritime Academy of Nigeria, Oron continues to enjoy funding
from NIMASA even outside the statutory funding requirement as enshrined
in the NIMASA Act 2007.
