Intensify Efforts Against Insurgents – Air Chief Charges Armed Forces
The Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar has charged members of the Armed Forces to intensify efforts at flushing out the remnants of Boko Haram insurgents in the North East. The Air chief made this call at the graduation ceremony of Junior Course 86 at the Armed Forces Command and Staff College (AFCSC), Jaji, Kaduna State. He said, “I will want you to bear in mind that you will be given appointment and responsibilities that will challenge and test the skills you have acquired whilst on this course.
“For members of the Nigerian Armed Forces, your sense of judgment in applying these skills will even be more apparent now that we are confronting a lot of internal security challenges in our country, most especially the menace of Boko Haram, ethnic-religious crisis and herdsman/farmers crisis.” He said the Federal Government will continue to train military officers and other security forces to effectively combat insecurity in the country.
