    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.
