The ship, which is scheduled to arrive in Nigeria on May 22, will berth in ports in Oman, Kenya, South Africa, Angola, and Gabon before arriving in Nigeria, he said.
The chief of Nigerian Navy staff, Awwal Gambo, believes it is critical for states along the coast to have a capable fleet that can provide naval power protection in support of national and regional stability.
He described NNS KADA’s return voyage as a “milestone achievement” in the navy’s fleet recapitalization efforts.
According to Gambo, NNS LANA’s recent survey and charting of Nigeria’s offshore waters, as well as the addition of NNS KADA, will aid in the deterrence of maritime crimes and the improvement of Nigerians’ well-being and maritime trade.
