The Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Sadiq Abubakar, has ordered top commanders of the Nigerian Air Force to adhere strictly to military ethics in all their operations.
Besides, the CAS warned the commanders that the NAF would deal with disciplinary issues in compliance with the vision to reposition the service.
Speaking at the Chief of Ai Staff’s retreat with senior officers in Abuja, Abubakar argued that a force that was truly professional would know what was expected of it in dealing with emergent security challenges.
The CAS equally noted that the commanders of the service must know how to function well in the face of current economic realities in the country.
According to him, “Our vision is about repositioning the Nigerian Air Force to become a highly professional and disciplined air force, through capacity building initiatives for efficient and effective employment of air power in response to our national security challenges.
“The key words in this vision is about professionalism; it is about having a disciplined professional force, a professional force that will act within the provisions of the law, a professional force that will protect the rights of citizens, a professional force that will do what is expected of it in dealing with our security challenges whether in the North East or in other parts of the country.
“We must go back to our ethics as military personnel; a professional force will deal with disciplinary issues promptly. A professional force will have the knowledge and skills required to function effectively and efficiently, especially in the face of the current economic realities.”
