The United States Navy has presented a Nigerian officer Lt Victor Agunbiade its medal of commendation for his meritorious service.

 

According to the navy, Agunbiade effectively managed its largest cash disbursing office handling $45 million (N17 billion) in cash transaction.

This, it said, accounted for around 70 per cent of its overseas disbursing volume.

According to the award citation, Agunbiade earned the honour while serving as cash disbursing officer at the navy’s Camp Lemonnier in Djibouti, between October 2019 and July.

“Additionally, he managed 100 per cent accountability of 23 million dollars (N8.7 billion) across six rigorous inspections and independent audits with zero discrepancies.

“By his unswerving determination, wise judgment and complete dedication to duty, Agunbiade reflected great credit upon himself and upheld the highest traditions of the United States naval service,” the citation read.

In 2018, Agunbiade was named the navy’s 2018 Officer Recruiter of the Year, alongside 17 others, and honoured at the annual Recruiter of the Year ceremony in Washington D.C.
