Nwabufo, first Nigerian to reach Antarctica on world expedition on Russian ‘Pallada’

Arthur Nwabufo, a Nigerian navigator and cadet at the Far Eastern State Technical Fisheries University of Russia, is currently on an ”around-the-world” expedition on the Pallada.

Nwabufo is said to be the first Nigerian to reach the Antarctica with the Russian fleet.

The training sailing vessel ‘Pallada’ is described as the pride of the Far Eastern State Technical Fisheries University and was built in 1989 at the shipyard of Gdansk in Poland.

The expedition is dedicated to the 200 years’ discovery of the Antarctica by Russian navigators.

A letter signed by Olga Tischenko, head of foreign affairs department of the university, addressed to the Nigerian embassy in Moscow announced the feat.

”This is to inform the Nigerian Embassy, that Mr. Arthur Oge Nwabufo a cadet from the Far Eastern State Technical Fisheries University is currently sailing on board sail training ship “Pallada” on the Round the World Expedition and he is the only Nigerian among cadets and crew-members of the sail ship,” it read.

Nwabufo is the younger brother of Fredrick Nwabufo, Nigerian journalist and columnist.

In Nigeria they would have used Educationally less developed states to knock him off or federal character and if it still fails he will be told he belongs to the 5%

But lets be realistic he can't be the first Nigerian to reach Antarctica ..every year 100s of researchers , Military personnel , pilots go to Antarctica from around the world and there must have been a Nigerian somwhere there especially among the researchers or pilots
