…Acting the Presidential cabal script to kill the institution
…Staff and Students send SOS message in lamentation
More confusion and uncertainty sets into the prestigious Maritime Academy of Nigeria (MAN),or on on 13’12’2017 when a team of the House Committee on Maritime Education Administration and Safety came on an oversight function assessment visit on the runnings of the institution so far.
The visit sources in the institution confirmed arose from the lingering feud in the institution when the Minister of Transport, Rt. Hon. Rotimi Amaechi constituted an illegal Interim Management Committee(IMC) headed by one Sarumi to run the administrative affairs of the institution whereas a Rector was appointed but Amaechi vowed over his dead body not to allow the man resume official duties.
The illegal Interim Management Committee so far has done a lot of damage to the institution.
On assumption they went ahead to advertise for contract bids and tendered employment vacancies in the academy.
The prompt intervention of the House Committee has halted them to stay clear of all administrative dealings of the academy and they further availed the opportunity to congratulate the new Rector, Commodore Duja Emmanuel Efedua and authenticated his office henceforth.
None of the Interim Management Committee members showed up during the visit for fear of embarrassment and booing by the aggrieved staff and students.
The Committee during the visit also found out that the ongoing admission process of the academy was hijacked and put on hold by the illegally constituted Committee of Amaechi.
Source who opt to remain anonymous revealed further that Minister Rotimi Amaechi sneaks into Oron every week to cause havoc in the academy and submitted with the goings he has no interest of the institution at heart rather a plot and revenge mission to sabotage the smooth operations of the institution and as well spite Senator Godswill Akpabio, the Senate Minority Leader who played a major role in his tied rope screening as Minister.
The Presidency is not also comfortable with the standard of the institution operating from the South South spotting and foiling a Northern plot to run down the institution.
