The Chief of Air Staff (CAS), Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar, has reaffirmed the commitment of the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) to continue working for the security and unity of the nation in line with the provisions of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

Air Marshal Abubakar made this reaffirmation in Maiduguri during the commissioning ceremony of newly remodeled aircraft shelters at the Headquarters (HQ) of the Air Task Force (ATF), Operation Lafiya Dole, at NAF Base, Maiduguri.

The director of Public Relations and Information, Air Commodore Ibikunle Daramola, in a statement said the new aircraft shelters were refitted with high-grade, durable canvas to enable them withstand the extreme weather conditions prevalent in Maiduguri.

The CAS noted that NAF personnel must not be distracted by self-centered individuals who do not wish the nation well.

“I urge you to remain patriotic and loyal to the president, Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces of Nigeria (AFN), Muhammadu Buhari, who is working tirelessly to ensure a secured and prosperous Nigeria”, he said.

Speaking further, the CAS, who was represented by the Chief of Aircraft Engineering (CAcE), Air Vice Marshal Musa Muktar, expressed delight at the timely completion of the reconstruction work stating that NAF aircraft and equipment would now be better sheltered from extreme weather, thereby, saving them from damage.

Air Marshal Abubakar also noted that the role played by the ATF, through its operations in the ongoing war against insurgency in the Northeast of the Country, was very crucial.
