The Chief of Air Staff (CAS), Sadiq Baba Abubakar, on Thursday stated that the Air Force would remain loyal to Nigeria and the Service.
Air Marshal Abubakar made these remarks during the commissioning of two blocks of flats at Bill Clinton Drive, Nigerian Air Force Base in Abuja. The apartments would be used by both transit and married officers.
Abubakar reiterated that the Nigerian Airforce (NAF) was dedicated to the welfare of its officers and the protection of the country’s territorial boundaries.
He also urged his officers and men to be more dedicated to their duties.
The NAF Chief also confirmed that the two blocks were named after two of its officers, Fg Offr A J Layelmenson and Sqn. Ldr B B Ado, who died in active service in Mali.
“The young officers protected our national interests, hence the need to immortalise them. We are remembering these fallen heroes by naming the blocks of flats after them,” Air Marshal Abubakar said.
