Senate President Godswill Akpabio has attributed the current increase in oil production in the oil-producing region of the country, to the tireless efforts of the Nigerian Navy in curbing crude oil theft.

Akpabio stated this over the weekend, in his address at the Dinner Night in honour of officers of Flag Rank retired in 2023, held at the Armed Forces Officers’ Mess, Asokoro, Abuja.

According to a statement by his media aide, Jackson Udom, Akpabio assured the Nigerian Navy of the support of the Senate for their continued success.

He noted that “the numerous arrests of ships and individuals involved in illegal bunkering, destruction of illegal refining sites, smuggled goods and narcotics as well as the increase in oil production in Nigeria, attest to the tireless efforts of the Navy in combatting the nefarious activities undermining Nigeria’s economy”.

According to Akpabio, “Nevertheless, I still challenge the Nigerian Navy to persevere and double her efforts in safeguarding the Nigerian Maritime environment. The nation looks up to you and expects nothing short of professionalism which you have exhibited thus far. Be assured that the National Assembly will support you with all the processes needed to succeed.

“I am most delighted to be in your midst this evening as the Special Guest of Honour for this dinner night in honour of officers of Flag Rank retired in 2023. It is indeed an event to commemorate the meritorious service of you retired senior officers.
