The Buhari led administration has commissioned the newly built Simulation Centre with fully installed Mission Bridge Simulator and Engine Room at the Maritime Academy of Nigeria, Oron in Akwa Ibom.
The Maritime Academy of Nigeria is a federally owned educational institute in Oron, Akwa Ibom State, Nigeria. The Institute was established in 1979 to educate and train shipboard officers and shore-based management personnel.
In 1988 the college’s mandate was expanded to training all levels and categories of personnel for all facets of the Nigerian maritime industry. This is the first time the Maritime Institute facilities will be having a major upgrade.
