Corps Marshal Congratulates Nigerian Air Force at 54

The Corps Marshal of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Dr Boboye Oyeyemi has congratulated the Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal SD Abubakar and members of his Management Team as well as Air Force family on the 54th anniversary celebration of the Nigerian Air Force (NAF). The Corps Marshal in his goodwill message on the occasion of the special anniversary parade organised to mark the event commended the Chief of Air Staff for the professionalism he has introduced into the management of the Air Force, saying his introduction of modern equipment and reliance on technology for his modernisation policy has brought respect to the service.

According to the Corps Marshal, the existing cordial relationship between the Nigerian Air Force and the FRSC over the years, especially as demonstrated through the air support to the FRSC’s end of year special patrol, has helped in no small measure in harmonising air and road transportation safety. He applauded the Chief of Air Staff for sustaining the relationship and restated the commitment of the FRSC to leveraging on the air support to make its yearly special patrol a successful exercise.

Oyeyemi who personally graced the occasion to witness the grand finale of the anniversary celebration at the Nigerian Air Force Base Kaduna, expressed optimism that with the level of modernisation introduced into the Air Force under this administration, Nigeria’s airpower will become a force to reckon with not only in Africa, but at the global stage. He gave the assurance that FRSC will continue to collaborate with the Nigerian Air Force in its support to civil populace for ensuring peace and tranquility of the nation.

The special parade which involved change of flags, aerial display and paratroopers display was followed by the commissioning of two new aircrafts recently introduced into the fleet of the Air Force by the representative of the President and Commander-In-Chief of the Armed Forces, the Minister of Defence, Brigadier Mohammed Monsur Dan Ali (rtd) in a ceremony witnessed by other service Chiefs, serving and retired military personnel and top government officials.
The Nigerian Air Force was established in 1964 by the Act of the Parliament to protect the Nigerian airspace and support other services for the protection of the territorial integrity of nation.
