Abuja - The Chief of Air Staff at the Nigerian Air
Force, Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar, assured the
December deadline set by the Federal Government to
end the insurgency would be achieved.
President Muhammadu Buhari gave the uniformed
forces the deadline in August.
Abubakar said the Nigerian Air Force had renewed
its air operations and re-strategized to make the
service more effective in the conduct of its operations
in the battlefield.
“Whether in support of the Army or while acting
singly, the NAF has made tremendous gains in
ensuring that the terrorists are degraded and no
longer able to move freely within the theater of
operations,” he said.
Abubakar said the effect of the recent successes
against the Boko Haram sect members had further
reassured the citizens who had started returning back
to their villages.
He noted normalcy was gradually returning to the
North East consequence upon the achievements being
recorded against the Boko Haram terrorist group.
Abubakar made the assertion when the Director
General, National Emergency Management Agency
(DG-NEMA), Sani Sidi paid him a courtesy call in
his office in Abuja.
The Air Force Chief further stated that the
organisation was committed to supporting NEMA in
taking care of the internally displaced persons (IDPs)
in the various camps throughout the Northeast.
The Air Force has already provided a level two
hospital at the Dalori camp, with over 34 highly
specialized medical personnel.
