In a strategic move, the Nigerian Navy implemented a minor shake-up, redeploying a total of 24 Rear Admirals and seven Commodores in a recent announcement. This reshuffling of appointments, revealed yesterday, marks the first collective redeployment orchestrated by Vice Admiral Emmanuel Ikechukwu Ogalla, Chief of Naval Staff, since his major appointments last June.

Among the notable changes, Rear Admiral Olusanya Bankole, previously Chief of Communications and Information Technology at Naval Headquarters, has been redeployed to the Defence Headquarters as DHQ – D DEF Cooperative. Rear Admiral Ibrahim Dewu, former Chief of Defence Civil Military Cooperation at Defence Headquarters, is now the Chief of Naval Safety and Standards (NASS).

Other significant redeployments include Rear Admiral Saheed Akinwade moving to Eastern Naval Command (ENC) as the Flag Officer Commanding (FOC), and Rear Admiral Istifanus Albara appointed FOC Naval Training Command (NAVTRAC).

For Commodores, MY Abba has been moved from NHQ to DELTA as COMD, and Commodore Kolawale O. Oguntuga has shifted from NNS BEECROFT to NHQ as PSO to the Chief of Naval Staff, with Commodore RT Oladejo taking over command at NNS BEECROFT.
