“With what the military, Nigeria Navy in particular, has achieved in the Gulf of Guinea, the next step will be to convince the major insurance companies in the world to start doing business with Nigeria.
“Ships will be freely plying the route to the advantage of boosting Nigeria’s blue economy,” he said.
Speaking with NAN after the meeting, the minister said it was a huge compliment coming from Chattam House.
“Chatam House is one of the most respected Think Tanks around the world , it was an honour and  privilege for me  to meet with the Director and some of the Principal member of staff.
“We exchanged view on the happenings in Nigeria.
“We went further to discuss security, economy and I was amazed about how well informed they were about Nigeria.
“I am also impressed about how sympathetic and appreciative of the efforts of this administration in the areas of economy, security and providing infrastructure.
“It was a very healthy exchange for both parties,” he said
The minister underscored the need for the Nigerian media to report the achievements of the administration rather than playing up the sensational negative news.
He assured that the administration would remain focused to sustain it’s reputation locally and internationally.
NAN reports that in his continuing engagements with the international media in London, the minister met with “The Telegraph”  BBC –Radio, Television Pidgin and Yoruba service.
He said the interactions covered a range of issues – security, economy, infrastructure, fighting and corruption.
