Polish Marine Academy sends 11 ex-militants home

Eleven ex-militants on maritime skill acquisition in Poland have been sent to Nigeria for their inability to meet the academic standard of the institution, the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports.

The students were among the 22 admitted to the Polish Maritime Academy in July for a two-year programme to study various courses, ranging from navigation to maritime science.

Polish Ambassador to Nigeria Przemyslaw Niesiolowski, who spoke to NAN, said the students could not cope with the school curriculum as they lacked the will to study, and had no basic education on maritime before proceeding for the course.

Niesiolowski, who regretted the development, said the institute observed “that the students attitude towards the programme was not encouraging, as they had undesired interest to be there and could influence and distract others from the course.”
