Following the uprising between angry workers and the management of Nigerian Maritime University, Okerenkoko, the paramount ruler of Gbaramatu kingdom, HRM Oboro Gbaraun II, Aketekpe Agadagba, has invited the waring parties for peace talk.

A source said at of Wednesday afternoon the management team and protesting workers have visited Oporoza Community, the capital of Gbaramatu kingdom to honour the king’s invitation.

The source said the reason for the king’s invitation was to find out what caused the uproar in the school and possibly address their defferences to avoid any rancorous situations.

Congress recalled that the workers had severally expressed disaffection on the level of staff welfare but the school management failed to take action until this abrupt situation.
