Making of a new Maritime Academy of Nigeria
The Maritime Academy, Oron Akwa Ibom State has established evident development with an array of new infrastructure all about the academy complex.
The entrance gate to the academy is overtly changed with a most-modern technology-fitted structure, both for aesthetics and security-compliance, with huge monitoring wall screens and communication gadget.
Rector of the Academy, Commodore Emmanuel Effedua (Rtd) is walking his talk when he promised commitment and remarkable turn-around of the institution on assumption of office in September 2017.
Staff and visiors to the over- four -decades old academy would testify of what it feels like to be a part of this new look and meaning added to the institution.
Today, the academy presents itself as a prestigious maritime institution where development is defined as holistic; physical structure and pedagogic excellence.
Cadets get the best of swimming training sessions in the world-class survival pools. Its 1000-sitting capacity auditorium can serve multi-purposes for academic and exra-curricular activities including seminars.
Cadets would return to the embrace of their newly-built hostels designed for just two persons, with all modern facilities for their comfort.
Certainly, Effedua has established commitment to rebuilding the academy, considering the newly- completed Library complex, new lecture theatres, administrative blocks, an ICT centre and a stadium complex.
Remarkable, the Academy will take delivery of its Bridge Simulator as the COVID-19 lockdown eases.
