Civil Society group applauds reforms in Maritime Academy

The Civil Society Group for Good Governance (CSGGG) has said that the reforms experienced in Maritime Academy of Nigeria (MAN), Oron, in Akwa Ibom State, should be sustained.

President of the Group, Mr Dominic Ogakwu, said this on behalf of the civil society groups while speaking with newsmen in Uyo on Monday

Ogakwu said that the group lauded the school management under the leadership of the Rector, Commodore Duja Effedua, for sustainable Corporate Social Responsibility towards the host community.

He said that from their observation, there had been improved management staff relationship which lead to increased productivity.

The group president said the remodeling of the safety demonstration swimming pool of the academy abandoned two decades ago and the upgrading of lectures theatres give credence to the leadership quality of the present management.

“We are impressed with the development strides of the Rector for his sterling performance, exemplary leadership, transparency and most important his attempt at ensuring standardisation of projects both completed and ongoing,” Ogakwu said.

He said that the current management had shown commitment to lift the standard of the academy to international level.

The group added that the leadership quality of present administration was in tandem with the good governance posture of the Federal Government under the leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari.
