Academy charges government on transport industry development

The Crown Maritime Academy
(CMA) says it is poised to providing quality transport education to support the
nation’s economic growth through the maritime and other transport segments.

The Registrar of the
Academy, Mr M.A.G Akinyemi, said this at a one-day retreat for academic staff
of the institute, which held at the Ogba, Ikeja campus of the academy.

He said the academy was
equipped with qualified academic staff and equipment to provide manpower needs
of the industry.

He disclosed that some
graduates of the school got jobs in government agencies in 2014 while some others
got opportunities to be on industrial training.  
Akinyemi called on
industry stakeholders to utilise the academy by sending their staff for
training courses regularly.  
Deputy Registrar of the
school, Mr T. E. Onukwu, on the sideline of her paper titled ‘Accessible and
Affordable Tertiary Education, What and How to Offer and Break-even at CMA,’
charged governments to develop transport industry because of its enormous
economic potentials in terms of huge revenue and employment opportunities.

She said “Government
should look at the transport industry; develop it for the growth of the nation
because of its huge revenue and massive employment opportunity. It can generate
so much revenue for the nation.”

Speaking on the academic
opportunities available at the institution, Onukwu said CMA has a lot of
academic opportunities to offer Nigerians and the nation’s transport industry
as it offers courses in all fields of transport. 
In 2014, the academy, based
on its education excellence, gained an international recognition when it was listed
as a member of the Commonwealth Education Partnerships (CEP), a body of
Commonwealth of Nations.

The academy had received
assessment visits by Nigeria Merchant Navy Officers and Water Transport Senior
Staff Association who came to assess academic facilities of the institution.
