UYO—PART of the reasons for the delay in upgrading the Maritime Academy of Nigeria, MAN, Oron, Akwa Ibom State to a degree awarding institution has been offered by the Rector of the institution, Mr. Joshua Okpo.

The rector who disclosed this while speaking with journalists at the Academy said the school was set up, among others, to train merchant navies to complement combatant naval officers in their marine activity.
