The Nigerian Air Force has commenced the training of another batch of Special Forces personnel to boost internal security operations in the country.

NAF Director of Public Relations and Information, Air Commodore Ibikunle Daramola, made this known in a statement on Wednesday in Abuja.

Daramola said the SF Course 5/2019 was inaugurated on Wednesday at the Regiment Training Centre Annex in Bauchi State.

He said the course, which is the seventh by the current NAF administration, is the first to be conducted at the newly established RTC Annex in Bauchi.

Daramola said the choice of Bauchi was to enable the trainees acclimatise to the arid conditions prevalent in the North East, as well as decongest the RTC’s main training facility in Kaduna.

AVM Idi Amin, the Air Officer Commanding Ground Training Command, while inaugurating the course said the training was another NAF leadership efforts to build capacity.

He said the training demonstrated the realisation of the Chief of the Air Staff (CAS), Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar’s, vision of repositioning the NAF into a highly professional and disciplined force.

He said this is for effective, efficient and timely employment of air power in response to Nigeria’s national security imperatives.

Amin said that the building of capacity of NAF SF was borne out of the need to ensure the robust defence of NAF Bases and air assets.

He added that it would also enable the Service continue to project air power effectively, thereby bridging the gap between Air Power projection and force protection.

“The robust capacity built has also enabled the Service to more effectively contribute to the protection of critical national assets, like our Airports, as well as provide support to sister Services and other security agencies in internal security operations across the country,” he said.
