A woman, Adeyemi Planche, has joined the pool of the nation’s citizens making the country really proud among the comity of nations.
A senior officer with the American Navy, she was recognised as the Sailor of the Fiscal Year 2020, an achievement that came as a result of her dedication to work, Tekedia reports.
The lady was given the plaque of recognition by the US secretary of Navy, Hon Kenneth J Braithwaite. It should be noted that Adeyemi had a first degree in computer engineering from the Olabisi Onabanjo University (OOU) in Nigeria.
After that, she got her MBA from the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH), Ogbomosho. While in Nigeria, she worked with both MTN and Ericsson.
Getting to America, the woman got a Master's degree in the field of information technology management from Trident University International, California. According to the same media, her working place is at the Naval Air Station North Island. She is also a counsellor with the helicopter sea combat squad.
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za earlier reported that the navy commended a man identified as Lieutenant Victor Agunbiade for managing its largest overseas cash disbursement office well.
Lieutenant Agunbiade was awarded the Navy and Marin Corp Development Medal for his exemplary accountability.
The US Navy said while serving as a disbursing officer, comptroller department, Camp Lemonnier Djibouti from October 2019 to July 2020, Lieutenant Agunbiade managed $45 million dollars in cash transaction well. The money accounted for approximately 70% of its overseas disbursing volume.
The institution added that the Nigerian man also maintained 100% accountability of $23 million among six rigorous inspections and independent audits with zero discrepancies.
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za reported that the Jerusalema Dance Challenge has become something of a national past time in recent days, and with President Cyril Ramaphosa telling SA to perform the dance has taken it to another level.
The South African navy must have thought that it was an order from the commander-in-chief and took it upon themselves to perform the dance.
Jimmy Dekock posted the video in the Facebook group #ImStaying and it has been very well received, with people giving the navy a big thumbs up.
