Johnny, a former Chairman of Egbema Gbaramatu Communities Development Foundation,  said the resumption of academic session at the temporary site of the Nigerian Maritime University at Kurutie is a fulfilled promise made to the Niger Delta people by President Buhari.

“President Buhari has vindicated me over the establishment and resumption of academic activities at the Maritime University, contrary to wrong insinuations against my person.
