Nigerian Air Force now a professional and disciplined force


The immediate past Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshall Sadique Abubakar on Tuesday said he was leaving the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) fulfilled.

Sadique made the assertion during a Fly Out parade organized for his exit by the Nigerian Air Force at NAF Base in Abuja.

Sadique who acknowledged God for his help while in service, said in the last five years, the Nigerian Air Force, had been repositioned and restructured into a highly “professional and disciplined force.”

He expressed optimism that with the 15 aircraft and eight unmanned combat aerial vehicles provided recently, NAF would be able to address the current security challenges in the country.

Sadique also expressed confidence that the current Chief of the Air Staff, Air-Vice Marshal I.O Amao would deliver on his job.

Recall that President Muhammadu Buhari, last week, approved the resignation of the nation’s Service Chiefs.
