CHIEF OF THE NAVAL STAFF INSPECTS PROGRESS OF WORK ON THE MADE-IN-NIGERIA 38 METRE PATROL SHIP UNDER CONSTRUCTION AT THE NIGERIAN NAVAL DOCKYARD

Having commissioned the first-ever Made-in-Nigeria warship, a 31 metre Seaward Defence Boat in June 2012, the Nigerian Navy are again constructing an even larger 38 metre Seaward Defence Boat at the Naval Dockyard in Lagos.

    The chief of naval staff also said the nigerian navy would no longer import boats which are 10-50 meters in length, as we have the requisite expertise to build boats in that class.

    That is great news for all of us as nigerians.

    Oga Henry, this is great news indeed.

    I hope this policy, leads to a ramped up ship building program.

    All our riverine patrol boats and landing crafts should also be reverse engineered with our new capacity.

    It just shows what great strides the various arms of the military have made in sourcing and repairing various platforms indigenously.
    It has caused frustration sometimes because we can’t see evidence of anything tangible being done, or platforms being purchased, but surely the end justifies the means.

    The more low-end tech we build on our own,the more capable we are to buy more sophisticated lead-in weapon platforms for our men in uniform. Kudos our Armed Forces.

    Although it is a good step but its a step a decade or two late…we should be able to build our own mine ships, corvette by now, and as per the secrecy that’s part and parcel of Nigerian politics…there is two ways, either the NN is doing more than what it says and doesn’t want the world to know or it is doing lesser than it says and doesn’t want the world to know…that’s for us to decide
