Navy to showcase locally-made warship

16 December 2013, 20:41

Lagos - The Navy plans to showcase its first home-made warship at next year's annual Nigerian Maritime Exposition (NIMAREX).

According to the Chief of Naval Staff, Vice Admiral Dele Joseph Ezeoba, the Navy would book a stand at NIMAREX 2014 scheduled for Abuja where it would exhibit a number of products and services of the Nigerian Naval Dockyard (NND) including the home-made vessel.

The Navy chief explained that that vessel had been subjected and scored highly in hardy sea trials.

He also noted that a bigger warship was currently under construction at the NND.

Ezeoba said the Navy would be making a big showing at NIMAREX 2014, considering the success of the Offshore Patrol Vessel (OPV) meet it hosted earlier this year in Lagos.

He noted that Nigeria’s hosting of the OPV had recorded much higher attendance than previous editions of the global event in other countries, and has, according to him, become a reference point for others, including one that Ghana is organising.

Ezeoba assured the NIMAREX 2014 Planning Committee of the Navy’s unstinting support towards a successful outing.

NIMAREX is an annual international expo and conference conceptualized to be the meeting point for players in the maritime industry in West Africa.
