The Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA) has postponed the entrance examination into the NIMASA Science and Technical College (NSTC), Okoloba in Delta, for the 2015/2016 academic session.
This is contained in a statement made available to newsmen on Thursday in Lagos by Hajia Lami Tumaka, Deputy Director, Public Relations of NIMASA.
She said the examination was earlier scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 8, 2015.
According to the statement, the examination, which was scheduled to hold in five centres across the country, was postponed due to administrative reasons.
It advised applicants and interested members of the public to monitor the NIMASA website – http://www.nimasa.gov.ng – for a new date, which would be made public.
The statement also restated the agency’s commitment to human capacity development in the maritime sector.
“The NSTC Okoloba was established two years ago with the aim of providing middle level technical manpower for the growth of the maritime sector,’’ it said.
