Students of the Regional Maritime University have been urged to take their education seriously in order for them to contribute effectively and meaningfully to the development of Ghana’s maritime industry.
The Minister of Fisheries made this call in a speech delivered on her behalf by the deputy director at the ministry at a durbar organised by the student representative council of the Regional Maritime University.
She charged the students to be honest and morally upright to take up the numerous job opportunities there are in the maritime industry.
“We advise you students that expectations are very high in the maritime world and as such you must be honest, morally upright to take up the challenges as there are a lot of job opportunities,” she said.
The durbar was used to showcase the diverse cultures of Ghana, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Gambia and Cameroun who are under the maritime organisation of west and central Africa.
Meanwhile, the SRC of the Regional Maritime University has organised a seminar for students on their career development.
Various speakers entreated the students to take advantage of the several opportunities that abound in the maritime industry.
