The Nigerian Navy had through its corporate social responsibility (CSR) positively affected lives as it fetes Ogun community.
The Flag Officer Commanding, Western Naval Command, Rear Admiral Oladele Daji who disclosed this through a statement on Friday, noted that the Command on behalf of the Chief of Naval Staff, has presented 50 bags of rice and 20 cartons of vegetable oil to the Tongeji community in Ogun State.
He noted that the initiative was its palliative towards reaching out to the residents of Tongeji community during the Covid-19 lockdown period.
The Command’s Information Officer, Commander Thomas Otuji also explained that it was also part of the series of activities towards marking the Nigerian Navy’s 64th anniversary.
Otuji buttressed that the Nigerian Navy would not rest on its oars but continually provide palliatives to deserving communities across the country.
The items were received on behalf of the community by the Akoko of Tongeji Island, Obabiolorunkosi Okiki Sule 1, who thanked the Chief of Naval Staff, Vice Admiral Ibok Ette Ibas, for the laudable gesture.
“The only way to appreciate the Navy was to pray for God’s blessings on the Service and its men.
“May the Almighty God richly bless the Nigerian Navy, its leadership and men for being there at this difficult period. These items will greatly help us,” Sule said.
