    Watching a program on the NN efforts on curbing oil theft,and one thought keeps popping into my mind “FG give us submarines”.Over 60 percent of our oil wealth is offshore so we need a stronger navy.

    Chai…how NN go show dat kind program by 1700hrs? Please o, 2030hrs or 2200hrs is IDEAL. Onward Together!

    Meanwhile, you might recall the thread which was posted ref NN officers training for submarine operations in Pakistan and then, the charting of our entire oceanfloor last August.

    The new naval base at Ibaka and the FOB Escravos possess the two deepest harbours in that order. Those two places would be ideal berths. NPA are even developing a near ports complex at Ibaka.
