Event Update


The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) humanitarian efforts in the North East recently received a boost when Tolaram Africa Enterprise donated 4,000 cartons of Indomie Noodles worth over 10 million naira for onward transfer to Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs). The donation was presented by the Chief Executive Officer of the Company, Mr Deepak Singhal, while on a courtesy visit to the Chief of the Air Staff, Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar  at Headquarters, NAF Abuja on 5 June 2017. The company noted with great interest, the remarkable support and intervention of the NAF to the IDPs, especially in the area of nutritional needs. The Chief Executive Officer disclosed that the company, having recognized the efforts of the NAF in alleviating the plights of the IDPs in the North East, had decided to identify with the remarkable contributions.

According to Mr Singhal, businesses and other human activities could only thrive in a peaceful and secured environment. He therefore commended the efforts of the NAF, in collaboration with other security agencies, in ensuring a safe and secured environment for all investors in the country. “The leadership of the Nigerian Air Force under the Chief of the Air Staff, Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar is doing a fantastic job. It is therefore important for us as a company and beneficiary of the dividends of the security to proudly identify with the NAF by giving our support towards the success of its humanitarian objectives in the northeast,” he said.

Receiving the donated items on behalf of the NAF, the Chief of Policy and Plans, Air Vice Marshal James Gbum, who represented the CAS at the occasion, thanked the management of Tolaram Enterprise for identifying with the NAF humanitarian efforts at ameliorating the suffering of the IDPs. He assured the company that the items would  be conveyed to the beneficiaries immediately. AVM Gbum further stated that the NAF would continue to identify with the IDPs through its humanitarian intervention which he said was also instrumental to the successful prosecution of the war against insurgents. One recalls that the NAF, in October 2016, launched the quarterly personnel voluntary contribution in support of the Federal Government efforts to rehabilitate the IDPs. Previous humanitarian efforts by the NAF also included the establishment of Level-2 hospitals in Dalori and Bama respectively as well as the regular conduct of medical outreaches for IDPs.
