The Western Naval Command, under the leadership of Flag Officer Rear Admiral Mohammed Hassan, conducted its first Quarterly Road March on Saturday, marking a significant event aimed at underscoring the importance of physical fitness within the Navy and fostering community relations.

The event, which witnessed an impressive turnout, is part of a broader initiative by the Nigerian Navy to maintain high fitness standards among its personnel.

“We conduct sports activities daily, with special emphasis on Wednesdays, but this quarterly march brings everyone together to highlight the critical role of physical readiness,” said Rear Admiral Hassan.

According to Rear Admiral Hassan, the routine exercises are crucial not just for physical conditioning but also for operational effectiveness. “The importance of fitness cannot be over-emphasized, as it enables our men to perform optimally in their respective operational areas,” he noted.

In addition to enhancing military readiness, the march serves to strengthen the bonds between naval personnel and the civilian community.

Rear Admiral Hassan emphasized the Navy’s commitment to maintaining a harmonious relationship with civilians, reflecting on their primary role in ensuring the happiness and safety of the public.

The Quarterly Road March is set to be a regular feature in the Navy’s calendar, with hopes it will continue to promote health, teamwork, and mutual respect between the sailors and the communities they protect.
