The Nigerian Navy (NN) has tasked its personnel on physical fitness, urging them to take advantage of every opportunity presented by the Navy to participate in all exercises.

The Chief of Naval Staff, Rear Adm. Ibok Ibas, gave the advice on Saturday, during the 2018 First Quarter Route March Exercise in Abuja.

Ibas, who was represented by the Chief of Logistics, Rear Adm. James Oluwole, said that all personnel were expected to be physically fit.

He said that, no officer dropped out of the March, was a testament that the objective of the annual medical test and weekly physical exercise conducted on personnel by the command had been achieved.

Our objective has been met, and I want to charge every one of us to take advantage of the every opportunity that we have to exercise physically.

“It is not just for our own good, it is not just for the good of the service, but for our own individual good.” I look forward to seeing everyone of us at the next second quarter route march in about three months time.

“Once again , I congratulate each one of us and expect that we keep up the tempo,” he said.
