Vice Admiral Il Ibrahim - Nigerian Navy

In contemporary and futuristic terms, the maritime security challenges around the Gulf of Aden, Gulf of Guinea, and elsewhere point to the global imperative of enhancing real-time MDA capability beyond the littorals and exclusive economic zones (EEZ). Accordingly, the Nigerian Navy has focused on the enhancement of maritime domain awareness, response capabilities, and enforcement of extant laws. This enhances security of our EEZ and information sharing in consonance with the nation's foreign policy thrust. These efforts confer on Nigeria's maritime environment and the Gulf of Guinea the status of a Zone of Peace conducive to economic activities.
