Vice Admiral Gambo congratulates all of them for being among the selected few that made it to this rank of their career, saying while it takes hard work to reach a glorious height, it takes harder work to remain up there.

 He therefore unreservedly congratulated each of them and urged them to justify the confidence of a proud and deserving nation.

Vice Admiral Gambo said, “notably, the Year 2021 has witnessed significant disruption in all facets of the national lives with the armed forces now more than ever required to play more significant roles to ensure security and prosperity of our dear nation.

“Consequently, the Nigerian Navy and the nation require you to be more dedicated and display unalloyed loyalty to the President, Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Nigeria in order to address the myriad of security challenges plaguing the nation.

Responding on behalf of the newly promoted Senior Officer, Rear Admiral Chibuike Azike showed appreciation for the honour done to them and promised that they would put in their best in the service of the nation.
