Last week, a Nigeria Navy Ship (NNS) Kada paid a port of call to the port of Mombasa on her maiden voyage from Lagos, Nigeria, to the United Arab Emirates through several ports.
Port calls are a show of diplomacy amongst navies to reinforce efforts of actualizing the objectives of a Naval-centric cooperation mechanism.
Nigeria Chief of the Naval Staff Rear Admiral Yakubu Wambai led a delegation from the Landing Ship Tank on Tuesday, 19th April 2022 in paying a courtesy call on Commander Kenya Navy Major General Jimson Mutai at the Kenya Navy Headquarters Mtongwe, Mombasa.
The courtesy call aimed at opening new opportunities to further the frontiers of cooperation between the two Navies thus improving the existing bilateral relationship. It also deepened and cemented collaboration on a quest for a safer maritime domain for both countries.
Present during the courtesy call were representative of the High Commissioner Nigerian Embassy to Kenya Dr. John Amondu, Commanding Officer of NNS Kada Navy Captain Reginald Adoki and the Kenya Navy Formation Commanders.
