On 29 October, seventy-three students who have been in Malmö since May for the Nigerian Seafarers’ Development Program completed their land-based training with the Copenhagen Malmö Maritime Academy (CMMA). The program provides maritime vocational training and was made possible through the efforts of the Foundation for Youth Development (FYD) and CMMA, with the support of WMU. In March of 2013, The Honorable Chibudom Nwuche, Chairman of FYD, signed the program into effect in the presence of His Excellency, Mr. Benedict Onochie Amobi, Ambassador to Sweden, Denmark, Norway, and Finland.
