The Nigerian Air Force, says it’s fighting force and skills have improved appreciably since the nation got entangled in the grip of insurgency.
The feat is due to the application of innovative technology on surveillance at designated locations in the Country, Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Adesola Amosun has said.
Amosu disclosed this yesterday during the commissioning of the remodelled Oko Barracks Road by Governor, Adams Oshiomhole of Edo state.
“If not for the lives that are really loss due to insurgency, you will see that this insurgency is really out to boost the capabilities of all the NAF’’.
He clarified that the rivalry among military agencies resulting to lack of collaboration in fighting which hitherto was the bane in the fight against terror has been laid to rest.
“Oh yes, but as I speak with you now, we have better collaboration and sharing of information. That explains why these bombs that use to explode in major Cities and towns have been reduced drastically. Out there in the North east, it’s going to get better because, we now have common communication’’, he said.
Governor Adams Oshiomhole told the visitor that the Nigerian government has not done enough to appreciate the military for paying the supreme prize for the unity of the Country.
The Governor assured of his administration’s support in the NAF desire to establish a state of the-art Secondary school in the state.
