The Chief of the Air Staff, Air Marshal Saddique Abubakar, on Wednesday inaugurated a storey building containing 18 units of two bedroom flats for Non-Commissioned Officers of the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) in Minna, Niger.
Abubakar inaugurated the building at the Air Force base, Minna.
He said that the Air Force had dedicated the facility to late Lance Corporal Tanko DJ who died during operation Zaman Lafiya on April 28, 2016 in the North-East.
“This is aimed at enhancing the morale of Nigerian Air Force officers and men in service.
“This is to assure you that your supreme sacrifice to our fatherland will never go in vain,’’ he said.
He said that NAF was committed to the well being of its personnel, hence creating enabling environment for their effective service delivery to the country.
Abubakar, who was represented by the Chief of Administration, AVM Lawal Alooma, expressed satisfaction with the quality of work.
He assured of proper supervision of the projects which he said were also ongoing in other air force bases across the country.
He urged the officers and men of the Service to respect the rule of law and pay allegiance to constituted authorities.
Air Commodore Idi Amin, Commander 351 Best Service Group (BSG), Minna, commended NAF for the gesture and assured of judicious use of the facility.
