Commissioned Projects Aimed At Improving NAF – CAS


The Chief of the Air Staff, Air Marshall Sadique Abubakar, has hailed the Federal Government for doing all it can to encourage the nation’s military in its fight against terror and in its bid to protect the nation’s territory from insurgents and encroachers.
Abubakar, speaking during the official commissioning of a number of projects at the Nigerian Airforce Institute of Safety, Ipetu-Ijesa, Osun State, yesterday, thanked the nation for giving the military all the support necessary to help it carry out its duties.
He hailed the efforts of his officers and all other officers of the armed forces and encouraged them to never lose their focus, as the life of career of military personnel was all about focus and alertness.
“It is my hope that these projects, which include an accommodation plan, would improve the livelihood of the airmen and airwomen, as well as their dependents and impact positively on the economy of the state and the nation at large, because all these are critical to the attainment of the primary goals of the administration,” Sadique said.
The governor of the State of Osun, Ogbeni Raufu Aregbesola, represented his deputy, Otunba (Mrs.) Grace Titilayo Laoye-Tomori, hailed the air force for finding it important to situate its projects in the state, as he pointed out that it would provide jobs for natives of the state and inspire young people to take up careers in the force, to protect the nation’s territorial integrity.
Also speaking at the event, the special guest of honour and former Chief of Defence, Air Chief Marshal Oluseyi Petinrin, gave the force credits for how far it has come and urged its leadership to never lose sight of its destination and never fail in shoring up the welfare of its airmen and airwomen.
