Despite President Bola Tinubu’s recent military shake-up, Naval chief Awwal Zubairu Gambo has refused to hand over power to his successor, Ikechukwu Ogalla.

Sources at the Nigerian Navy headquarters in Abuja have reported that Mr. Gambo has remained in office, citing the need to pay contractors and naval officers from an outstanding capital vote before leaving.

While other service chiefs have already departed, Mr. Gambo has insisted on staying until his unfinished business is completed.

“He wants to pay contractors, himself and other naval officers some billions in capital,” a senior naval officer told The Gazette. “We have never seen anything like this before in our service.”

“He should realise that any action he takes after the president’s public announcement is null and void in the Nigerian Navy,” the official added.

This has caused concern among officials, who have been urging him to comply with the president’s order and vacate his position.

Mr. Gambo has reportedly budgeted $200 million for the repairs of the NNS Aradu, despite being advised to decommission the ship.
