“As you are aware, sports, physical and mental activities have always been a bedrock of the Navy daily routine source for personnel at shore and at sea. It is for this reason and the benefits derivable from participation in sports, that the NN pays particular attention to sports engagement.”

Meanwhile, Gambo applauded the Lagos State government and the National Sports Commission (NSC) for their contribution towards the Navy activities, adding that the Navy is set to break world records during the exercise.
