Fred Omotara, Lagos
The University of Lagos (Unilag) has offered to collaborate with the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) Dockyard Training School in the area of Diploma and Master programmes.
Speaking during the commissioning of the NPA’s Dockyard Training School in Apapa, Lagos on Wednesday, Vice Chancellor of Unilag, Professor Oluwatoyin Ogundipe explained that the institution currently runs such collaborations with other training institutions across the country.
According to Professor Ogundipe, “I am excited about the commissioning of the NPA Dockyard Training School today. I want to specially congratulate the MD/CEO of the NPA, Mr. Mohammed Bello-Koko for bringing this up.
“One of those things that he has been able to achieve with this is that he will be saving the country some funds that would ordinarily have been used to send people abroad for training. Also, this idea will bring resources to play, where some of our colleagues will be able to teach and expose NPA staff to recent development in the area of maritime and related studies.
“I want to assure you that the University of Lagos will be ready to collaborate with the NPA in the area of Diploma or Masters Programme, so that we will be able to get the best use of this facility. It can be a customized programme, which we currently have with other organisations across the country.”
