INTERNAL SECURITY: NAF SET TO DEPLOY MORE PLATFORMS TO SOUTH-SOUTH, AS CAS COMMISSIONS RESIDENTIAL ACCOMMODATION FOR PERSONNEL IN CALABAR

The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) is set to deploy additional Super Puma Helicopter to Calabar to secure the southern axis of the Nigerian airspace and complement air operations in the South-South Geopolitical Zone. This was made known today, 15 October 2020, by the Chief of the Air Staff (CAS), Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar, while commissioning a furnished block of 30 x one-bedroom transit accommodation for airmen at the 305 Special Mobility Group (305 SMG), Calabar.

The CAS, who was represented by the Chief of Policy and Plans, Headquarters NAF, Air Vice Marshal (AVM) Oladayo Amao, disclosed that the 305 SMG Calabar was established to survey and secure the southern axis of the Nigerian airspace, continuing from the point where the Area of Responsibility (AOR) of the 115 Special Operations Group Port Harcourt terminates. He remarked that the NAF Headquarters was doing its best to make at least one more Super Puma helicopter operational, which would ensure that there is an aircraft domiciled in Calabar for necessary air operations. This, he said, was to make up for the Unit’s existing Super Puma helicopter which is currently deployed for operations in the North East. He assured that, in the interim, 115 SOG Port Harcourt would continue to extend air support to Calabar with its platforms, as done a few months ago when an EC-135 helicopter from Port Harcourt was deployed to Calabar to support the Nigerian Navy during Operation SAFETY CHECK.

Speaking further, the CAS disclosed that, as part of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA) Deep Blue Sea Project, aimed at comprehensively addressing insecurity and criminality in Nigeria’s territorial waters and Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ), special mission aircraft, being acquired by the Federal Government, would operate from Lagos, Benin, Calabar and Port Harcourt, amongst other locations. He noted that this would undoubtedly enhance maritime domain awareness thereby improving security in the South-South axis. “All these efforts are geared towards ensuring that Nigerians go about their business in a safe and secure environment”, he said. He therefore charged the personnel to always maintain the highest level of vigilance and security within their AOR.

The CAS also used the opportunity to express his profound appreciation to the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Nigeria, President Muhammadu Buhari, for his continued support in providing platforms and equipment required by the NAF to achieve its objectives and perform its statutory roles. “We will continue to show our appreciation by remaining disciplined and loyal while exhibiting the highest level of professionalism." He also commended the Cross River State Government for its support to security agencies in their efforts to rid the State of all forms of criminality.
While appreciating the CAS for continuously according high priority to the welfare of personnel, the Commander 305 SMG, Group Captain Abraham Sule, reaffirmed the Unit's dedication to the accomplishment of assigned tasks and promised to continuously achieve desired results in their daily operations. He further appreciated the CAS for his relentless commitment to the provision of infrastructure for the optimal performance and comfort of NAF Personnel.

Also present at the event were the Air Officer Commanding Mobility Command, AVM Ibukun Ojeyemi, as well as other senior military officers and heads of paramilitary and security agencies in Calabar.

NAF seems to be more concerned about the welfare of their men and women than the other arms of the military.

The land soldiers are the worst; their heads personify corruption

To the other news, I want to appeal to the protesters NEVER to ask Buhari to step down because it's very sensitive.

He should serve out his administration but should be made to implement policies that will move the country forward. Else, we will occupy Aso Villa and the national assembly.

May God specially bless Aisha Yesufu...that woman is a northerner who doesn't think like them.

In NIgeria of today, I have added Sodiq Abubakar and governor Zulum to my list of Nigerians with excellent minds.

I only had Two persons on that list before. One pastor and one business man.

It is becoming extremely expensive in this country to do the right thing. Wickedness and share barbarism has been enthroned.

The only working Service Chief. If Buhari is wise, this is the best time to make statements by firing the non performing appointees. First on the firing list should be the IGP. If SARS under his watch has caused the this, then he should be sacrificed first for the protesters to have hope or believe the Govt on NPF reform. Also, for the fact that he lacks crisis management skills. When he announced a new unit SWAT while protesters are still on street. Saying they will be given special weapons.... We are protesting that they are abusing the power and weapons given to them. The werey is planning to give them more. Meaning he is so insensitive and his actions gave more reasons for continued protest #EndSWAT

The next two should be the Chief of Defense Staff and Chief of Army Staff (Buratai) even the NSA Mogunu too. They have all failed and should be flushed out. But PMB is too slow in acting
