Ship Donation

The United States Coast Guards is set to “donate” a war ship to the Nigerian Navy in its bid to further strengthen the regional security aspect of the Bio-national agreement between the US and the Nigerian government.

The vessel will be donated to the Nigerian Navy in recognition of the good relationship that exists between the two nations.

The refurbished ship (built in 1968, and recently decommissioned) is equipped with a helicopter pad, guns (76mm) and two diesel engines, but has no missile capability.

The ship will sail to Nigeria in July 2011 once a Nigerian crew has been trained.
