He advised his men and officers to have a change of attitude in their operations to enable him actualise his new plan of addressing the menace confronting the nation’s waterways.

“You are all aware of the recent insecurity challenges in the country especially in the Niger Delta region and its impact on the economy. I have taken my officers up on the need to remain patriotic and serious with their jobs.

“I have visited some IOCs asking them the challenges they are having all on a bid to ensure that they mop up security and provide en enabling environment for the improvement of oil production,” he told reporters after the tour.

The naval chief also took time to thank officers and men of the Naval Command for their resilience and steadfastness in keeping Nigeria’s waterways void of crime. (Channels TV)
