Matawalle presents Tinubu some cutting-edge, unmanned watercraft.

President Bola Tinubu was presented with two state-of-the-art unmanned water vessels by Minister of Defence, Dr. Bello Matawalle.

This was stated in a statement given by Mr. Henshaw Ogubike, Director, Press and Public Relations, Ministry of Defence (MoD), on Friday in Abuja.

As a whole, the country’s waterways and the fight against insecurity are anticipated to benefit from the vessels.

Swift Ship Company of the United States of America gave the two unmanned vessels to the government of Nigeria.

While introducing Tinubu to the S2 and S3 Swift Sea Stalkers, Matawalle said that the state-of-the-art weapons would be used to combat insurgency in the Niger Delta, the Lake Chad region, and other coastal areas of the nation.

The donation, he said, was the product of his recent business trip to the United States, where he met with representatives from several companies and discussed ways to improve the Nigerian military’s ability to deal with modern security threats.

The minister reportedly toured U.S. companies NEANY, Swift Ships, and OCR Global—a manufacturer of cutting-edge military hardware—during his recent visit to the country, according to NAN.

The minister went on to say that the plan was for the Defence Industries Corporation of Nigeria (DICON) and American corporations to work together to manufacture military hardware in Nigeria.

He claimed that the new alliance will help Tinubu achieve his goal of establishing national security by providing Nigeria with the chance to study cutting-edge methods of producing military weapons.

Additionally, he apprised the President of additional facilities that he had the opportunity to examine during his time in the United States. These included a small biometric search-scan system, an unmanned water vehicle, a drone ground control station, and a fast deployment mobile RADAR system.

Presented with state-of-the-art military and intelligence gear capabilities, he assured me, will make a significant contribution to Nigeria’s defence against insecurity.
