    The statement read, “He (the Chief of Naval Staff) noted that the security challenges the country is facing are not insurmountable, adding that ‘it is now more action, less talk’ as directed by the President.”

    While acknowledging the enormous responsibility saddled on the Nigerian Navy and other Armed Forces, the AGF assured the Naval Chief of the continuous support of the federal treasury to the forces.

    He said, “The Nigerian Navy and other Armed Forces have kept the country one in terms of discharge of their duties. Your responsibility is enormous, you need every support.

    “We will continue to support you by giving you the necessary tools for you to deliver.”

    Idris also congratulated the Naval Chief on his appointment and stressed that no effort will be sparred to sustain the cordial relationship that has existed between the Nigeria Armed Forces and the Federal Treasury.
