The Nigerian Navy in conjunction with the Nigeria Hydrography Association today mark the World Hydrography Day.
The theme of this year’s event is, 'Hydrographic Information a Drive to Marine Knowledge.’
The event makes a giant stride today as it unveils the official launch of the first Indigenous Navigational Chart produced by the Nigerian Navy.

According to the Chief of Naval Staff Vice Admiral Ibok Ibass, the chart makes life easier for the Mariner with Nigeria having over 300 creeks and water channels along its coast lines. He iterates that the chart will reduce cost of doing business in the country.

The CNS Vice Admiral Ibass also highlights Nigeria’s attainment of units 1 and 2 of International Hydrography Organization (IHO) development strategies regarding the ability of disseminating safety information and administration of aquatic life within our waters.
The chart was produced in conjunction with the National Inland Waterways Authority (NIWA) who provided veritable navigational documents from their archives.

The occasion had in attendance the Managing Director Nigeria Ports Authority Miss Hadiza Bala Usman as Special Guest of Honour.
