The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) has held its First Quarter 2018 Route March Exercise for personnel serving in Abuja. The Exercise, which was conducted today, 27 January 2018 was led by the Chief of the Air Staff (CAS), Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar, with serving Youth Corps members also participating. The aim of the Exercise was to keep officers and men of the Service physically and mentally fit to enable them perform their statutory role effectively. The 10km route march exercise kicked off from Mogadishu Military Cantonment to Niger Barracks and back.

While addressing participants at the end of the Exercise, the CAS commended personnel for demonstrating a high level of physical fitness, stating that today’s security challenges are very complex and require a sound mind in a sound body.  The CAS encouraged personnel to remain focused and professional in the discharge of their constitutional role. According to him, no territory of Nigeria would be allowed to be undermined by anyone, charging personnel not to be distracted by malicious campaigns from individuals, who are bent creating anarchy in the country.
 
The CAS warned NAF personnel not to involve themselves in unconstitutional conducts and partisan politics as the 2019 General Elections are fast approaching. He also announced that work was in progress in establishing a Forward Operational Base (FOB) each in Cross Rivers and Akwa Ibom states respectively. He further stated that the FOB in Mubi, Adamawa State would be activated while an Annex of Headquarters Mobility Command would be established in Akwa Ibom State. “All these are being done to proactively tackle emerging security issues in the Southsouth Region”, the CAS said. Air Marshal Abubakar thereafter advised personnel not to rest on their oars but redouble their efforts in Year 2018 towards accomplishing more. He then assured personnel of the readiness of the NAF leadership to continually improve their welfare as they continue to act in the defence of the territorial integrity of the nation.
