Obasanjo, whose port reform programme led to the concession of terminal operations at the nation’s seaports in 2006, is expected to chair the grand finale of the anniversary celebration slated for December 12, 2013 at Sheraton Hotels, Ikeja.
MARAN President, Mr. Bolaji Akinola, explained that the event was being targeted at drawing the attention of the Federal Government on the need to further exploit and harness the potentials in the maritime sector.
Akinola said part of the programmes preceding the celebration would include visit to a motherless homes, novelty football march to entertain friends and well-wishers of MARAN and a thanksgiving service to be held both in a church and a mosque.
He implored past presidents of the association, friends and well-wishers who have been around since 1988 to send in their nominations for recognition of those that actually made outstanding contributions to the growth and development of the maritime sector within the period.
