The Director, Naval Information, Commodore Kabiru Aliyu, has said the Federal Government has procured four warships for the Nigerian Navy.
Aliyu, whose comments were contained in a statement on Sunday, said the four warships would be inaugurated by President Goodluck Jonathan on Thursday at the Naval Dockyard Limited, Victoria Island, Lagos.
He said the new ships would enhance the Navy’s operations against contemporary security challenges especially on the nation’s maritime domain.
Aliyu said the exercise was unique because this was the first time the Navy would take delivery of four warships at once.
The Naval spokesman said the gesture only demonstrated the efforts of the government to reposition the Navy to meet contemporary challenges.
