The Chief of Air Staff (CAS), Air Marshal Isiaka Amao, has commended his officers and airmen for being able to contain the activities of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB); while keeping the level of insecurity in the South-East at a low ebb.
Amao said this while addressing officers and airmen of the NAF Ground Training Command (GTC), Enugu during a familiarization visit to the Command on Wednesday.
He said that the armed forces have been given a mandate by the President to tackle all forms of security challenges in the country.
“We are to ensure that Nigerians return to their livelihoods without fear or favour; that the farmer can go back to his farm and herdsmen can carry out their activities in a secured environment.
“We (are to) bring back lasting peace among Nigerians notwithstanding socio-economic activities they engage in,” he said.
The NAF boss also urged officers and airmen to always work in synergy with other sister security agencies in order to achieve faster and better results, while stating that “synergy is what we are talking about now and we must cultivate the habit of seeing other sister security agencies as partners in progress.
“We must work as one. An army man is equal and having same responsibility as an air force man or the naval man; which overall objective of them all is how to check security challenges,” the CAS said.
He also gave the assurance that there would be infrastructural upliftment in all Nigerian Air Force (NAF) formations in the country, and that the challenges and welfare of the officers and airmen would be given “due attention and priority to further boost your morale.”
The CAS inspected and received briefing on the permanent site of the GTC Command in Enugu; helicopters and helicopter hangers and NAF Base and its health facility.
Other places inspected and received briefing on included NAF property in Forest Close, Enugu and residential quarters wing at the temporary site of the GTC Command.
