The Chief of the Naval Staff, Nigerian Navy, Vice Admiral Awwal Zubairu Gambo , on Thursday was honored with the Award of Examplary Leadership in Maritime Security at the International Symposium on Blue Ocean Economy and Maritime Security in Africa: Challenges and Prospects for Agenda 2063 held in Stellenbosch, South Africa.
Gambo , received the award presented by Prof M.S. Tshehla, Dean of Faculty of Military Science, Stellenbosch University while Mr. Patrick Agbambu, CEO Security Watch Africa Initiatives read his citation.
The symposium was based on the premise that the successful attainment of the African Union’s Agenda 2063 objectives is premised on the sustainable peace and security on the continent.Thus, this requires coordinated efforts on all fronts across the continent. Most of the programmes and associated outcomes of the continent’s developmental agenda are linked to its ocean waters.
The Symposium thus sought to explore various aspects of the Blue Ocean Economy and the potential roles that the navies of various countries can play, in conjunction with public and private sector entities, in ensuring security on the continent’s ocean waters.
