The Chief of Air Staff (CAS), Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar, while winging the officer at the service headquarters in Abuja, said NAF will continue to consolidate on its core mandate of safeguarding the country.
“Therefore, for us, training is very crucial for what we are doing. In the last two years, we have made concerted efforts to ensure that our personnel have what is required to enable them discharge assigned tasks,“ Abubakar said.
He disclosed that at the moment, the service has close to 200 personnel in nine different countries, undergoing different types of training, adding value to what they already have.
He commended President Muhammadu Buhari for giving NAF the opportunity to not only acquire platforms, but to have officers in different parts of the world acquiring necessary skills to secure the country.
The CAS also congratulated the graduand, Flying Officer Ibrahim Ibrahim, for successfully completing his course, after one year of rigorous, all encompassing and intensive training.
In his speech, the graduand said the training has actually prepared him to face the task ahead, which is, protecting the country and its territorial integrity. (NAN)
