Nobody Can Succeed In Undermining Nigeria’s Territorial Integrity, Says NAF Boss
The Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshall Sadique Abubakar, says there is a need for citizens to join the efforts of the military and other security agencies in the country.
According to him, no individual or group of people can succeed in undermining the territorial integrity of Nigeria.
Abubakar made the comments while celebrating the Eid-El -Kabir with officers, airmen, and women of the Air Task Force Command in Yola, the Adamawa state capital.
He insisted that despite the recent attacks in parts of the county, substantial progress has been achieved in the fight against insurgency and banditry.
The military, according to him, will continue to work round the clock until the people of Nigeria and their properties are secured.
He also called on the troops fighting Boko Haram insurgency in the North-east and others deployed elsewhere to remain focused on their task of securing the country.
The air chief, however, commended the contributions of officers and men of the Command and cautioned them not to be distracted by what they get from social media.
The event was organised for personnel deployed in the Task Force Command involved in the fight against insurgency, as well as to interact with and encourage the troops.
Air Marshall Abubakar was received on his arrival in Yola by the Commander of Air Services Group, Air Commodore Mohammed Yusuf, and other senior officers.
But he welcomed Adamawa State Governor, Umaru Fintiri, who attended the event as the special guest
In his address, the governor applauded the Nigerian Air Force and other security agencies for the good job they are doing for the country.
Earlier in his welcome address, Air Commodore Yusuf gave assurance that the NAF base in Yola would continue in its role in the fight against insurgency.
The highlight of the event was a cultural dance from the Adamawa State Cultural Team.
