The Maritime Reporters Association of Nigeria (MARAN)
has restated that it is not in any merger arrangement with any group.

In a statement issued by the executive council of the
oldest and leading reporters’ association in Nigeria, it said that MARAN is as
vibrant as ever and still in the vanguard of developmental journalism in the
maritime industry and does not intend to abdicate that responsibility.
The association, in the statement weekend said this
clarification became necessary in view of deliberate misinformation and
falsehood being peddled around that MARAN is part of the merger arrangement
with another group.
‘’MARAN however is still open to persons who are
qualified journalists and cover the maritime sector’’, the statement read.
The executive council of MARAN therefore unequivocally
denounces and dissociates the association from any merger arrangement as the
reports on social media to that effect was mere rumour which emanated from the
fertile imagination of its sponsors who are desperate to use the credible name
and legacy, which MARAN has garnered over the years through robust journalism,
to give credibility to the said group.
‘’We cherish the sanctity of the long tradition of
excellence which MARAN has come to be identified with over the years and we
don’t intend to filter these gains away under any guise’’, the association
